A Broader University Experience
Living on campus puts you front and center for college experiences both in and out of the classroom — from community activities like field trips, film series and faculty speakers to open mic events and impromptu fun on your floor. Living on campus also offers you more time to interact with staff and faculty, who can provide invaluable personal guidance, career guidance, career connections and leadership opportunities.
Residence Halls, Suites, Apartments
Point Park University’s residence halls offer students a dynamic living and learning environment in the urban setting of Downtown Pittsburgh. With many different living options — from single, double and triple rooms to suites and apartment accommodations — you’re bound to have a great on-campus living experience.
- Thayer Hall houses freshmen.
- Lawrence Hall houses primarily freshmen, with some space for upperclassmen.
- Pioneer and Conestoga Halls offer suites for sophomores and juniors.
- The Boulevard Apartments provide apartment living for juniors and seniors.
All University buildings, including residence halls and apartments, are smoke free.
Check out the Campus Map to see where each residence hall is located — you'll be living in the midst of all the action, right in Downtown Pittsburgh.
Built-in Support System
Community facilitators (for freshmen floors) and community mentors (for sophomore halls) are upper class students who have been selected based upon their level of maturity, social skills and desire to serve the University community. We call them CFs and CMs. These students are around to help freshmen adjust to college life and to provide support for sophomores.
