Duquesne's Campus Stands Out

On Duquesne's campus, there are always events and activities where you can relax, hang out with friends and meet new people.

  • Campus Link features a complete listing of upcoming events and all of our student organizations.
  • The Duquesne Program Council is a student-run programming body that is responsible for bringing comedians, concerts, movies, lectures and a variety of cultural and recreational programs to Duquesne's campus.
  • The Union NiteSpot, located on the first floor of the Union, is a popular facility equipped with many forms of entertainment.
  • Those who donate time through the service projects of Duquesne University Volunteers not only make a positive difference in the lives of others, but get the opportunity to share this special experience with peers and strengthen or develop new friendships.

At the heart of campus, The Duquesne Union offers a place to hang out, get a caffeine boost at Starbucks, visit the Computer Store or get your student ID card. The Union houses student services, lounges and entertainment, meeting rooms and administrative offices.

The Power Center offers state-of-the-art fitness facilities, a ballroom and conference spaces, and houses the Barnes and Noble Bookstore and Cafe.

Sports events and concerts are often held at the UPMC Cooper Fieldhouse, which serves as the home for both men's and women's basketball as well as volleyball. Prospective students and families can visit the Admissions Office on the first floor of the Administration Building.

Off campus, Duquesne students are in close proximity to all of the wonderful dining, shopping and entertainment options in downtown Pittsburgh, as well as the surrounding neighborhoods.

  • From the symphony to the Andy Warhol museum, Pittsburgh has a diverse collection of Arts & Culture venues.
  • Whether you want to shop, dine or gather socially, many Night Life opportunities await.
  • With Pittsburgh's reputation as the "City of Champions;" Sports & Fitness activities are plentiful.
  • The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium is home to thousands of animals, including many threatened or endangered species.
  • Experience the thrills of Kennywood Park, one of the oldest and most beloved amusement parks in America.

Walk a few blocks into the city and you'll be emmersed in Pittsburgh's cultural district, where Broadway and local plays, musicals, concerts, comedy shows and the ballet await. Prefer to shop or dine out? There are plenty of stores and restaurants downtown, in the cultural district and in nearby neighborhoods, like the SouthSide Works or Station Square.

Hop on the bus to venture farther into any of Pittsburgh's thriving neighborhoods. Enjoy a fun variety of culture, food, people activities and all our great city has to share.
