At Quinnipiac, college is a living/learning environment. When you enroll, you immediately find yourself immersed in a supportive academic environment that offers a home away from home.
Approximately 4,800 students make up the residential community of Quinnipiac University. Students live in traditional residence halls, suites and apartments on the Mount Carmel Campus, houses and apartments in University owned off-campus properties, and apartment-style residence halls on the York Hill Campus. More about our housing options.
Quinnipiac housing is available for students seeking a comprehensive residential experience. Beginning in their first year with the FYRE program, students will learn about themselves and how to acclimate to new surroundings. Students can also participate in a residential interest community. During their sophomore year, SPIN provides a more focused approach to deciding a major and becoming involved on campus. Life on the Hill is a stepping stone to independent living for juniors at the York Hill Campus. The Senior Experience offers programming and housing options that celebrate their four-year experience. Seniors have the convenience of living in University housing while being contributing members in the community surrounding Quinnipiac. More about the residential experience.
Residential Life offers five residential learning communities to first year students: Business 3+1 BS/MBA program, Honors Program, Global Living, LiveWell (health and wellness) and QULEADlife (leadership development). Participating in a learning community allows students a unique, inclusive and exciting living experience. More about residential learning communities.
