About Us

Duquesne University Health Services

We are a component of the Center for Student Wellbeing within the Division of Student Life. Although our combined presence is ‘virtual,' we collaborate closely with the other components in the Center - Counseling Services, Recreation Services, and also with Campus Ministry. This intentional combination of student services addresses the Duquesne student holistically: mind, body, and spirit.
