Living on Campus Is Easy, Fun … and Smart!

With convenient access to everything at Point Park and an eye on safety, living on campus puts you front and center for college experiences both in and out of the classroom, all in the heart of Downtown Pittsburgh, one of America's most livable cities.

Great options, dynamic city living

Point Park's residence halls offer students a dynamic living and learning environment with different options — single, double and triple rooms, suites and apartments — as you progress through your years at the University. 

From each of residence hall, you're within easy walking distance of classrooms, campus eateries, fitness and recreational facilities, the Student Health Center, meeting spaces and other gathering places. Each residence hall has security features and procedures to help provide a safe, secure living and learning environment.

Resident educators, known as REs, are upper-level students who have been selected for this role based upon their level of maturity, social skills and desire to serve the University community.

These students live right in the residence halls so that they can help freshmen adjust to college life, provide support for sophomores, and offer peer mentoring for juniors and seniors. They take pride in helping fellow students to resolve any challenges they may face and to thrive at Point Park.

Within the residence halls, our residence life staff members aim to supplement the knowledge students gain from the classroom with exciting and fun programs and activities to help instill community values.

These activities focus on personal development, community engagement, civic responsibility and, of course, having fun!  To learn more, visit our residence life page.
