Irmagarde Tator Hall

Irmagarde Tator Hall, known around campus as Irma, is a co-ed residence hall that also houses our university public safety office. While the building is co-ed, the rooms, hallways and bathrooms are assigned to a single sex. Each room houses 2 people and has 2 beds, 2 desks and 2 free-standing closets. Hallway bathrooms are used by approximately 30 residents, and there is a kitchen and several laundry areas.

Experience Irma

Irmagarde Tator Hall — or "Irma" as it's more affectionately known — is a community in itself, just steps away from the Quad and the Bobcat Den. In this episode of Quinnipiac Dorm Tours, follow first-year student Suzette Olesen as she shows you what it's like to live in a residence hall where people leave their doors open and everyone knows your name.

Benefits of Living on Campus

At Quinnipiac, all incoming students are required to reside on campus during their first three years of enrollment. That’s because living on campus provides a comfortable and convenient home base near to all the action, and the resources that will help you thrive academically and socially. You will become fully immersed in our campus life and culture, and be close to places you can quietly study, relax, or enjoy a meal with friends.

  • Annual events, including guest speakers, concerts, student group events and food festivals.
  • A range of student-run clubs and organizations, as well as numerous intramural, club and Division I sports teams.
  • 8 Living-Learning Communities that allow you to live with fellow Bobcats who share similar passions and academic interests.
  • A 35:1 ratio of residents to resident assistants, which means that you can count on a network of support.
  • Convenient access to the Arnold Bernhard Library (open 24/7).
