Make Point Park Your Home

Live on Campus in Downtown Pittsburgh

Maybe this is your first time away from home, or you’ve been looking forward to living on your own for some time, or you have always been an independent, free spirit … 

Point Park University provides safe, comfortable, amenity-rich living options on our unique urban campus.

Students in the Silver Screen LLC (2010-11) gather in the hall to work on a project together.

Why Live on Campus?

The true college experience doesn’t just happen in classes. It happens on the way to the dining room with your friends, it happens at a late-night movie in your residence hall with your floor mates, it happens while you’re up late studying with a classmate. It's what happens when you live on campus

You'll find:  

  • People experiencing the same things as you
  • Friendships and camaraderie
  • Insights through intentional programming
  • Guidance and mentorship from your resident educator

Convenience, Convenience, Convenience

While “convenience” sums up the main reason for living on campus, it is so much more. Living on campus means you can spend more time on what matters instead of transportation and bills.

When you live on campus, you live near the library, dining hall, restaurants, Student Center, professors, computer labs, and all other campus amenities like the Student Center Fitness and Recreation facilities and the Student Health Center.

Within a short walking distance from your residence hall, you’ll find great places to eat and shop, world champion sporting events, unique museums and inspiring performances, not to mention fun outdoor activities along our three rivers.

  • Explore our interactive Campus Map to see what's close to your new living arrangements.

An Eye on Campus Safety

All residence halls have controlled access and are equipped with smoke detectors and fire extinguishers. The Department of Public Safety is at work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide a safe, secure living and learning environment for the University community.
