Having Fun On Campus and in Pittsburgh

Duquesne’s self-contained campus and the City of Pittsburgh – one of America’s most livable cities – provide countless opportunities for students to take a break from their studies and unwind. 

On 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 either strengthen or develop new friendships

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