Your first year at college is an exciting time. We’ve designed our residence halls and campus amenities to be welcoming and supportive spaces where you'll thrive. The First-Year Residential Experience (FYRE) at Quinnipiac provides a dynamic, engaging and supportive environment for you to transition to college life. Learn more about the housing process, residence hall options, move in, and resources like shuttles, dining, and fitness and recreation opportunities.
Look around some of our residence halls
All of our first-year residence halls are located on the Mount Carmel Campus along Bobcat Way. You’ll be close to everything you need — including the Carl Hansen Student Center, dining options, the Athletic and Recreation Center, academic buildings and the Arnold Bernhard Library.
Dining halls on each of our campuses offer tastes of both the global and the familiar, with ingredients that are fresh, sustainable and often sourced locally. You want options? We have several unique culinary stations offering traditional and eclectic dishes.
Campuses and Facilities
We challenge the traditional ideas of “campus life.” Wide-open spaces, meandering pathways, skylights, lofted ceilings and intimate courtyards enhance the sense of community.
From residence halls modeled after European ski villages to brownstone-style buildings with full kitchens and patios, we purposefully designed our living spaces with personal comfort, connecting with friends and student safety in mind.
Our outdoor spaces are more than just green grass. They are places where you'll gather with friends for cookouts, play a pick-up game of basketball or simply study with the beauty of New England as your backdrop.
All of the knowledge you seek — from core class references to specialized periodicals — can be found within the walls of our three modern libraries. Contemporary design, digital collections and comfortable spots to sit and study make our libraries ideal places to catch up on course work or just read for relaxation.
Diversity and Inclusion
College is about more than your studies. It’s about meeting new people with diverse experiences and perspectives. You’ll be part of a community that celebrates unique backgrounds, beliefs and identities.
Spiritual and Religious Life
At Quinnipiac, people of all religions are welcomed, accepted and encouraged to fully observe their faiths. We have several organizations that offer worship services, counseling and celebratory activities that enable members to live spiritually fulfilling lives.
Stadiums, Gyms, Courts and Campuses
Athletics and Recreation
Ultimate Frisbee, flag football, hiking Sleeping Giant and skating in our hockey arena are just some of the ways you can stay active throughout the year. Work out in one of the fitness centers located on our 3 campuses, each fully equipped with free weights, weight-lifting and cardio machines. Run on our suspended indoor track, take a group fitness class like Spinning or Zumba, or practice yoga or Pilates with our certified instructors. You can even earn credits while enjoying canoeing and indoor rock climbing.
