University-Owned Housing

The university offers a variety of student housing options. Students typically progress toward more independent living from year to year.

Quinnipiac housing is guaranteed for three years for incoming freshmen. More than 4,400 students live in university housing, which includes traditional residence halls, suites, apartments and off-campus houses. 

First-year students are offered a variety of living options: Irma and Dana are traditional residence halls with two to three people to a room and a community bathroom; Ledges and Commons quad-style rooms consist of four people to a room with a community bathroom; Mountainview is suite-style housing consisting of four double-occupancy rooms and a suite bathroom.

Sophomores and Juniors choose between suite-style housing offered in The Village or apartments in The Hill, The Crescent and The Complex (Bakke Hall, Founders Hall and Sahlin Hall). The units in the Village, Hill and Complex all have three bedrooms. Each suite or apartment includes a shared common room and bathroom. Sophomores and Juniors may also live on the York Hill Campus in apartment-style housing offered in the Crescent, Townhouses, Westview or off campus at Whitney Village. Apartments provide one to four bedrooms, a furnished living room, oversized bathroom and a kitchen.

Seniors may select from available apartment-style housing at Eastview, Townhouses, and university-owned houses. Many seniors have single bedrooms and all have an extended housing contract. Students living in university-owned houses are minutes away from the Mount Carmel and York Hill campuses.

Graduate housing is available on a limited basis. Students have single bedrooms in the Crescent or our university-owned houses and apartments.
