As Quinnipiac prepares to have prospective students tour their campus there are some must-see locations that your future Bobcat won't want to miss!

Walk the Quad

Enjoy walking around the hub of student activity. Here you will find students, professors, and Boomer walking the green. Whether or not you want to grab a bite at Café Q, study at the library, or hang out with friends. You can enjoy the quad with friends any time of the year.




Eat at On The Rocks Pub

Check out On the Rocks Pub for delicious bar bites and an entertaining atmosphere. The pub is a place for celebration between friends and family. There is always an event going on whether it is a laugh-out-loud comedian or a groovy live band. 

Hike the Sleeping Giant

The mountain offers a wide range of trails from beginner to expert. Take in the scenic park with friends, family or yourself.


Relax in the Arnold Bernard Library

Located in the heart of the Mount Carmel Campus, Arnold Bernard Library is a great place to study with both undergraduate and graduate students. The library hosts electronic resources including 153 databases and 117,000 journals – with your laptop or use one of Quinnipiac’s 60 public computers. You can find students studying in a silent study room, a comfortable chair overlooking the scenic mountain or even in a private study cubby. 

Explore the Recreation and Wellness Center

Head over to the Recreation and Wellness Center located on Mount Carmel’s Campus. Remodeled in 2021, the wellness center is the pinacol for student health. The RecWell is a fully equipped gym with a rock-climbing wall, health services, sports health and a smoothie bar. There are a variety of fitness classes such as yoga, Pilates, Zumba and spin.
