Congratulations on your commitment to Quinnipiac University! As a student here, you have access to award-winning faculty, outstanding facilities, and, for those living on campus, many wonderful residence halls.

I am a senior biochemistry major with minors in psychology and global public health. I am a Resident Assistant (RA) on campus and will be serving as one of the RAs for the first-year Honors LLC in the fall!

Quinnipiac has many residence halls, each providing you with a home away from home. First-year residence halls include multiple styles: Commons, The Ledges, Irmagarde Tator Hall and Dana English Hall are our double style options. Each room houses 2 people and comes with 2 beds, desks and standing wardrobes. Each hallway has a bathroom, and the buildings have kitchens and several laundry rooms.

Mountainview is one of our suite style options, housing 8 people in a room split into 4 double bedrooms, a furnished common space and a bathroom. The building has many common spaces, kitchen areas, and laundry areas around the building.

Larson, Perlroth, and Troup (more affectionately known as “The Suites”) are our other suite style option. These buildings each have a large common space with charging stations, wonderful furniture and are a perfect place for first-year students to meet new friends!

Living on campus is an extremely convenient way to be both involved on campus and be able to relax and unwind easily after a long day of classes. You can also easily stop at our dining hall in the Carl Hansen Student Center on your way home!

Many events happen later at night, which makes living on campus a great way to attend these events and be home in mere minutes. Living on campus also provides 24-hour safety by our Public Safety team, ease of mind having both student health and EMS services available and recreational facilities on both residential campuses. Of course, Sleeping Giant State Park and the Farmington River Canal Trail are right across the street!

Having many of these areas both on and off campus are a wonderful way to meet new people and make friends as a college student. Living on campus creates friendships that last a lifetime. Many of my closest friends lived in the same building as I did during my first year here at QU!

Overall, living on campus has been the reason that I have succeeded in so many ways. You will soon learn that our residence halls are a place you will call home.

I look forward to welcoming you to campus this fall, and please feel free to say hello to me if you see me during your move in!
