Housing and Dining Options for International Students

On-Campus Housing

As an international undergraduate student, you will live in one of seven Living Learning Centers. At Duquesne, we believe that a university education is not just about academic learning but also about social, cultural and personal learning. By living on campus, you have the opportunity to bond with fellow students in a safe, convenient social environment.

Freshman (first-year) and sophomore (second year) students are required to live on campus unless you qualify for a waiver from the Office of Residence Life. 

Living Learning Centers vary in design, but all facilities are equipped with:

  • One, two or three beds per room, depending on occupancy
  • Dressers, closets, desks, desk chairs and bookshelves
  • Laundry facilities
  • Social lounges and event spaces
  • Wireless Internet access
  • 24-hour on-site security and on-call support staff
  • Refrigerators and microwaves (for rental)

Important Documents: You must complete the Housing Preference Form and the Housing Agreement Form. These forms are both on DORI. It is important that you submit these forms prior to June 15 for the fall term and December 1 for the spring semester. 

Graduate Students & Upperclassmen Housing

Duquesne's Office of Commuter Affairs provides assistance in locating options for apartment rentals. They have resources available for learning more about Pittsburgh neighborhoods that are popular with students and understanding rental concepts and documents, such as leases.

If you are interested in a homestay with a local family in Pittsburgh, contact OVECS and Global Pittsburgh.

On-Campus Dining

Duquesne Dining Services provides students with a variety of food options across campus that can accommodate any diet. Meal plans are included in the cost for on-campus residents, and affordable options are available to off-campus residents at all dining facilities.
