About Duquesne University
Duquesne University is a private, coeducational university located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Located in the uptown neighborhood known as the Bluff, our hilltop campus rests on 49 acres overlooking the city's downtown district and South Side neighborhood. Despite this urban setting, our quiet and secure campus of residence halls, academic buildings and recreation facilities is encompassed by green lawns and tree-lined walkways throughout.

At Duquesne, students learn with mind, heart and spirit. In keeping with our Catholic-Spiritan tradition, students receive a strong moral foundation for professional and personal development through intellectual and ethical inquiry, research and academic study, and service to others.

Duquesne University, the world’s only Spiritan university, is one of America’s leading Catholic universities, with a worldwide reputation of excellence in liberal and professional education. At its founding, Duquesne brought higher education to the children of struggling immigrant workers, and was one of the first universities to admit women and minorities.
