Duquesne is a private university on a 49.5-acre campus, located above the vibrant city of Pittsburgh. This gives our community a small town feel near a rich urban setting. The Pittsburgh region offers a variety of cultural, education and professional opportunities, where a safe and affordable lifestyle is readily available.
One of America's leading Catholic universities, Duquesne was founded by the Congregation of the Holy Spirit in 1878. The Spiritans continue to play an important and inspiration role in the campus' ethical teachings and outreach.
Applicants must be willing to contribute actively to the mission and to respect the Spiritan Catholic identity of Duquesne University. The mission is implemented through a commitment to academic excellence, a spirit of service, moral and spiritual values, sensitivity to world concerns, and an ecumenical campus community.
