Living at Quinnipiac

Life as a Bobcat

We aren’t satisfied with just being “a home away from home.” The energy here is palpable, largely because we know that how you live is just as important as where you live. While all freshmen go through the same first-year experience, unique housing options — both on campus and off — open up as you progress through school.

Common ground

The Commons, a freshmen dorm on the Mount Carmel Campus, has 180 quad rooms.

It takes a village

With more than a dozen residence hall options and several off-campus housing options, it’s easy to find exactly what you’re looking for — whether you’re entering as a first-year student, transferring from another school, or finishing out your final year. Every residence hall is comfortable and welcoming, each with its own unique character and style, and purposefully designed to provide a village-like experience.

Student Testimonials

Creating a community


“Every morning, I wake up and I don't have that ‘missing home feeling’ — because Quinnipiac University is my new home," said Mackenzie Campbell '19. "Ever since the first day of freshman year, I knew this would be the place where I would discover myself and become the student and person I was destined to be. This year, I was lucky enough to be a first year resident assistant and the experience is unlike any other. I love watching my residents come together and create a community."
