Approximately 5,000 undergraduate students (72%) live in campus-owned properties; 95% of first-year students live on campus.
New first-year students entering Quinnipiac semester are required to live in campus housing for their first 3 years of study. In general, first-year and sophomore students live on the Mount Carmel Campus and upperclass students live on the York Hill Campus, in the Whitney Village apartments or in university-owned houses.
Housing is guaranteed for the first 3 years and on a space-available basis in the senior year.
First-year students who live on campus are not permitted to have a car/vehicle. All students may use our free campus shuttle service, which makes convenient stops on all 3 campuses and at nearby shopping centers and restaurants, as well as the New Haven train station.
Our first-year class consists of about 1,800 students who represent about 30+ states and 20+ countries, and have an average GPA of 3.4 on a 4.0 scale.
Quinnipiac offers more than 140 student clubs and organizations, fitness and recreational/intramural sports, Greek Life, 21 men’s and women’s NCAA Division I athletic teams that hold sporting events throughout the week and on the weekends.
