School of the Week: Quinnipiac University

Between the Mount Carmel Campus, York Hill Campus and North Haven Campus, Quinnipiac offers something for everyone. It’s no wonder it's is among the best national universities in the nation. Check it out for yourself!


QU Campus

A place to call home.

Located in Hamden, Connecticut, Quinnipiac is central to New York City and Boston, which are just a train ride away. Hamden is the ultimate blend of urban and suburban lifestyles, making it easy to find comfort. It’s nestled right next to Sleeping Giant Mountain, so you’ll never get sick of the views. In your spare time you’ll find students hiking, shopping on Dixwell Ave, and relaxing in the beautiful campus quad. Just 15 minutes away you’ll find New Haven, which has culture and nightlife right at your fingertips. While you’re there, make sure to grab a slice of the country’s best pizza. You won’t regret it!



Crush your goals and prepare for your future.

Kickstart your journey by choosing from one of 58 majors, 49 minors and 20 dual-degree programs. From there, join the 73 percent of students who go after an internship to gain hands- on experience in their industry. With over 60 thousand alumni connections globally, our network has endless possibilities. You’ll land in some pretty cool places like NBC Sports, TMZ, Ralph Lauren, Google, HBO and more. Go out with a bang by graduating from the best college in the nation for employment after graduation. What’s better than that?


QU Dorm

Live here, thrive here.

Make your space your own in one of the 15 different residence halls, including 19 Living-Learning Communities, where you can live with people who have the same interests as you. Dining is fun with 31 different stations to pick from. Whether you’re feeling some sushi, a burger, or your favorite Starbucks latte, you won’t be disappointed. Become part of something bigger with over 140 student-run organizations, such as, Greek life, our television station, and many cultural, identity and faith-based groups. Come unleash your passion!


QU Sports

Get ready to roar.

There’s no shortage of ways to get involved or support your teams. Quinnipiac is a Division 1 school, which means you’ll be able to cheer on top student athletes from around the world. Compete against fellow Bobcats in one of the 14 different intramural sports or 22 different club sports. On the weekends prepare to get (very) loud at the People’s United Center, Quinnipiac's 185,000 square-foot athletic facility, as you watching nationally ranked teams in action. There’s never been a better time to be a part of Bobcat Nation. Come see it for yourself!



Make the most of your time here.

There are endless ways to feel supported and have fun doing so. Public Safety always has your back and is there when you need them. Your academic success, health and emotional well-being come first, and Quinnipiac’s got you covered. You’ll be able to enjoy the new Recreation and Wellness Center to its fullest when it opens this fall. Whether you’re in the mood for rock-climbing or yoga, the options are endless. There’s always something happening across campus, from food festivals and fundraisers to the annual Wake the Giant Concert. Not to mention, you can head to our campus pub, On the Rocks, for some more fun. Discover your ambition!

Your future begins at Quinnipiac. Where will your tracks lead to?
