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).
