Parking and Transportation Services

Parking at Quinnipiac University is considered a privilege and provided free of charge. Faculty, staff, students and visitors all share the limited spaces available on our three campuses. The dynamic parking system is designed to allow the freedoms to come and go as one pleases, so long as everyone follows the rules.

A parking permit (window decal) is issued, free of charge, to all faculty and staff members. Students in their sophomore, junior, senior and graduate years of study are eligible for a student parking permit, at no cost. Freshman students are not permitted to have cars on campus, and are therefore not eligible to receive a parking permit.

Because parking spaces are limited, university faculty, staff, students and visitors are encouraged to explore alternate options such as public transit, carpooling, walking and/or bicycling to campus.

All vehicles operated on any Quinnipiac University property must be registered.  All unregistered vehicles will be issued a citation and are subject to tow at the owner’s expense.

Shuttle Services

The Quinnipiac Shuttle Service is a free transportation service, available to the Quinnipiac University community through the Department of Public Safety. The shuttle system operates on both a fixed route schedule and on-demand. The fixed schedule provides safe, convenient and reliable transportation throughout the campus and surrounding community. Five separate shuttle busses loop the Mount Carmel Campus arriving approximately every 10 minutes. Those same busses also service the Westwoods, Whitney Village and Whitney parking lots and Quinnipiac Theatre Arts building. On the weekends, shuttle busses arrive at 15-minute intervals. For any shuttle questions or concerns, please email parkinginformation@qu.edu.

Four shuttle routes are available, including:

• Mount Carmel Campus loop

• North Haven Campus loop

• New Haven Town and Train route

• North Haven Shopping and Entertainment route

Quinnipiac has contracted with Propark Inc., which provides air-conditioned ADA-compliant vehicles with leather seats and free WiFi. Professionally licensed shuttle drivers have passed extensive background checks along with additional driver training.

On-Demand Shuttle Service can be accessed by calling 203-691-1512.

Shuttle App – Ride Systems

A free shuttle app is available for download on Smartphones and computers. Go to the App Store and search for Ride Systems. Once you download the app, enter “Quinnipiac” in the Agency or Provider field. The app lets you view a map and a real-time schedule of busses and routes. GPS tracking shows each bus and its approximate arrival/departure time at the various shuttle stops.

Full shuttle schedules, can be found on the My Q website under the student services tab.
