There are lockers available in Academic Hall. Store books, clothing and whatever else you don't feel like carting around.

Use of the lockers is free, but you need to register for one in the Office of Student Life, seventh floor of the Student Center. 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.


Whether you're on campus once a week or five days a week, you'll need to eat. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, a quick snack - and don't forget coffee! If you pay to dine out regularly it gets expensive, not to mention unhealthy. Eat on campus.

Point Park meal plans make it easy for you to eat healthy, inexpensive meals without leaving 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 Point Perk, the campus coffee shop
