Dining Experience

Dining Locations

Dining halls on our 3 campuses offer choices that represent 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. If eating sensibly is important to you, you'll love the options available to achieve a balanced lifestyle.

We believe that healthy and satisfying are never mutually exclusive, that taste is a matter of choice, and that all food should be comfort food.

North Haven Campus Dining

Dining options on Quinnipiac University's North Haven Campus.

The full-service dining facility on our North Haven Campus features the same health-friendly options as our other campuses: a full deli-bar and a variety of grab-and-go choices such as Au Bon Pain soups and savory salads made up of more than your average greens.

We designed the dining hall on our North Haven Campus with busy and passionate students in mind — well-furnished and mellow, complete with terrace and patio seating overlooking a tranquil pond for those times when you want to relax and enjoy a full meal.

When you need a pick-me-up, grab a cup of freshly brewed Starbucks coffee. We know coffee isn't just a beverage for health care professionals, lawyers and educators, but a necessity — and Starbucks has treated it like a fine art since 1971.
