Health and Wellness

At Quinnipiac, we prioritize the academic success, health, emotional well-being and safety of our students above all else. Bobcats enjoy an extensive variety of programs and services dedicated to their intellectual, emotional and social development, and they can always count on help when and where they need it.

Our Holistic Approach to Student Success

Health and wellness strengthen the bonds of our community at Quinnipiac. When the mind, body and spirit come together to uplift others, we all thrive. It is not enough to pursue academic rigor without nourishing and developing other traits as well — compassion, courage, persistence and renewal. Only then do we become our best selves.

Our licensed counselors help students navigate these often challenging and complicated journeys with kindness, discovery and hope. Our licensed health care professionals treat each illness with empathy and discretion to promote healing. And our academic support staff helps students build the skillset and confidence to flourish. But no one ever reaches the finish line alone. A personal best time, the view from the summit, that initial dance class with friends — every success starts with a first step.

Student Health Services

The highest priorities of the staff are to meet the acute health needs of the student population and to provide ongoing health education opportunities as an integral part of the Quinnipiac experience. The Mount Carmel Campus Health and Wellness Center is located on Bobcat Way.
