Quinnipiac will introduce dedicated housing for members of its LGBTQ+ community this fall.

The Unity Living Learning Community, located in the Mountainview residence hall, will accommodate up to 40 members of the university community.

Incoming first-year students will have the opportunity to express interest in up to three LLCs at the university, including the LGBTQ+ housing.

Students enrolled in the LGBTQ+ living learning community housing will also have the opportunity to take the same courses, work with a dedicated faculty affiliate, engage with faculty members about gender and sexuality and participate in small-group reflections.

There are currently 18 first-year LLCs and 1 sophomore LLC. Learn more about Quinnipiac's LLCs
