Getting to class on time will be easy when you set up your home at Penn Commons. Roll out of bed and be at Duquesne University, The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, and Point Park University in less than 10 minutes. There are also several direct bus lines that you can catch nearby that get you to the campuses of the University of Pittsburgh or Carnegie Mellon University in about 30 minutes.
After finishing classes for the day, open up your laptop at the kitchen table of your suite or sit down at your own desk to check your college emails and social media updates. You can choose between shared or private bedrooms, and apartments on the upper floors have great city views.
When you tick off the last box on your to-do list, treat yourself to some fun time in the rec room. Pick up a paddle and play a few rounds of ping pong or try your hand at a game of foosball against your roommate. You can gather around the big-screen HDTV to watch the big game or one of your favorite programs. Keep an eye out for frequent social life events that take place in the residence hall.
With Downtown Pittsburgh right outside your door, plan on spending lots of time hanging out at the city’s best restaurants, pubs and cultural attractions. After a fun night out, gain entry to your apartment by swiping a controlled card key. Safety is a top priority, and you can feel comfortable knowing the front desk is manned 24-hours a day.
