As a student at Quinnipiac, you'll take challenging courses that will help you develop into a lifelong learner. The Learning Commons is important to the process and should be part of every student's experience.
The Learning Commons offers two broad categories of support, defined by the way students interact with us: one-on-one support and group service.
Arnold Bernhard Library
With an extensive collection designed to complement the full range of Quinnipiac's courses, the Arnold Bernhard Library is a key resource during your time at Quinnipiac. The library is also the hub for a wide variety of databases covering journals, periodicals, newspapers and e-books.
School of Law Library
Inside the School of Law Library, students have access to all of the research sources, technology and personal assistance they need to explore the world of law. The library offers 425,000 volumes, access to a vast collection of digital articles and connects with libraries around the world. The building features spacious public areas and numerous reading rooms and individual study carrels.
Terry W. Goodwin '67 Financial Technology Center
Students experience the thrill of working in a financial trading room without ever leaving campus at the Terry W. Goodwin '67 Financial Technology Center. It's a technologically sophisticated hands-on classroom for learning how financial markets tick and for keeping up with the Wall Street beat.
Software installed in the center's 50 computer workstations allow undergraduate and graduate students to access real-time financial data from markets all over the world. You can practice analytical finance methods, conduct trading simulations, develop financial models, analyze economic databases, and study stocks, bonds, currency and interest rates. Each workstation has a gigabit Ethernet connection, a T-1 Internet connection and two 19-inch LCD monitors.
Client Services is your one-stop shop for technology support. Whether you are having problems with your laptop (Windows or Mac), you need to borrow a camcorder for a class project or you want help configuring your smartphone, we can help you.
We operate three Technology Centers, one on each campus. We employ student workers (known as STARS) to work at these Tech Centers. Every STAR is specially trained to assist other students with their technology-related questions and issues.
Career development is an ongoing process. From selecting a major and evaluating your interests to writing a resume and preparing for interviews, our staff is here to assist you every step of the way with developing your career plan and achieving your goals.

Athletics Academic Support Services
The Academic Support Services office helps guide and monitor Quinnipiac student-athletes through the process of achieving their academic, personal and professional goals. Our professional staff partners with coaches, faculty and staff to support our student-athletes with the transition from high school to college, by providing an environment that fosters self-learning, commitment to academic excellence and personal growth. Learn more about academic support services for athletes.
Student Center Services
At Quinnipiac, you'll find a community of support that works hard to help you achieve your full potential. In fact, we're so focused on support services that we've got awards dedicated to recognizing staff members who go beyond the call of duty.
For much of what you need, look to the Carl Hansen Student Center, which houses many facilities and services, including a post office, banking, the dining hall, lounges and the Quinnipiac Bookstore. The Rocky Top Student Center, which serves as a resource for students living on our York Hill Campus, features a dining hall, post office, fitness center, health services center and meeting rooms.
Students Who Disclose a Disability
Our coordinator of learning services, John Jarvis, works directly with students who choose to disclose a disability. We realize that individual students learn differently. While Quinnipiac does not have a specialized program for students with disabilities, we do work with students who choose to disclose the nature of their disabilities. We honor both the spirit and the letter of the laws that apply to students with disabilities.
