Use of the lockers is free, but you need to register for one in the Office of Student Life, first floor of Pioneer Hall. And remember to bring a lock.

See the student handbook for rules, as well as information about summer clean out. Questions about lockers? Contact Student Life at 412-392-8026. 

Eating on campus

Breakfast, lunch, dinner, a quick snack — and don't forget coffee! If you pay to eat out (the quickest is fast food, no pun intended) this can get really expensive, not to mention unhealthy. Eat on campus.

Point Park meal plans make it easy for you to eat healthily, cost effectively and without needing to stray far from campus. You can choose a meal plan specifically for commuters, which gives you access to

  • all-you-can-eat breakfast, lunch and/or dinner in the Lawrence Hall Dining Room
  • breakfast, dinner or late-night hours at the Point Café
  • flex dollars, which work like a bank debit card and are accepted at all of Point Park's food service locations, including the campus Starbucks.

Check out the various meal plan options, including costs, and fill out a meal plan contract to sign up.
