For nearly 100 years, Quinnipiac University has called New Haven county, home. And with our 3 campuses located in the towns of Hamden and North Haven, we take our responsibility as a good community member and neighbor seriously. We are committed to doing our part to enhance and enrich the quality of life for our students and the residents in both communities through open communication, collaboration and positive action.
Working to reduce hunger and support food recovery in our community
Quinnipiac and Haven’s Harvest formally announced a new partnership that will help reduce hunger and support food recovery in Hamden.
Quinnipiac Dining, which oversees food services at the university, is now donating its excess food directly to Hamden residents through Haven’s Harvest, a nonprofit organization that currently provides food to those facing food insecurity throughout Greater New Haven. Quinnipiac students will volunteer to help distribute the food throughout Hamden.
Programs and Services
As champions of community service, our 10,000 students volunteer throughout Connecticut, from assisting with Ronald McDonald House projects and raising money for charities to motivating school children in the region with Read Aloud days to beautifying neighborhoods. Our health professions students provide free clinics, and our law students perform legal services and tax preparation for residents in need. The university enriches the community with cultural opportunities, athletics and entertainment options that attract thousands annually.
Off-Campus Housing Task Force
Our Off-Campus Housing Task Force is the main contact for area residents and elected leaders, partnering to enhance the well-being of our shared community, informing the public of community interest projects and events, and sharing other efforts and opportunities that will bring our community together.
