Mount Carmel Campus

The Mount Carmel Campus is where you'll find your new home away from home. The picturesque Quad at the foothills of the Sleeping Giant State Park is where many students first fall in love with Quinnipiac.

The Mount Carmel Campus is home to most of our residence halls and academic buildings. Find a sweet spot to study in the Arnold Bernhard Library. Grab a bite to eat, a book to read, or meet with your student organization at the Carl Hansen Student Center. Exercise your mind at the Buckman Theater, your body at the Recreation and Wellness Center, and your community spirit at the Albert Schweitzer Institute. 

Arnold Bernhard Library

The 48,000-square-foot Arnold Bernhard Library features a sprawling, contemporary design. It's the place where both undergraduate and graduate students come to study, collaborate on group projects and conduct research. Access the library’s array of electronic resources — including more than 150 databases and more than 100,000 journals — with your laptop or use one of our dozens of available computers. When you need help, a knowledgeable librarian is available in person and through email and chat.
