Off-Campus Housing Information

Many upperclassmen choose to live in one of the Pittsburgh neighborhoods surrounding Duquesne's campus. Students find that living on their own comes with newly found opportunities and responsibilities. We remind students to always be responsible neighbors within their communities and to meet the Expectations of a Duquesne Student.

Campus Residency Policy

Students may start living off-campus beginning in their junior year. Per the Campus Residency Policy, students in their freshman or sophomore year are required to live on campus or at home with their parent/guardian.

City of Pittsburgh Code

Students who live off campus should be advised that according to City of Pittsburgh Code, no more than three unrelated individuals are permitted to reside together in one rental housing unit.

Updating Your Local Address

If you plan on living off-campus at a location different from your permanent residence, you must provide a local address to Duquesne University.

To update your local address log into DORI and then click on Self-Service Banner. Once in Self-Service Banner, click on "Personal Information" and then "Update Addresses and Phones."
