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 first-year students. Approximately 4,000 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 will be occupied by no more than three people to a room with a community bathroom; Mountainview, Larson, Perlroth and Troup are suite-style residence halls consisting of four double-occupancy rooms and a suite bathroom.

Sophomores choose between suite-style housing offered in the Village or apartments in the Hill, the Complex (Founders, Sahlin and Bakke) and the Crescent. The units in Larson, Perlroth and Troup feature four double-occupancy bedrooms. The units in Founders, Sahlin and Bakke feature one double-occupancy bedroom and two single-occupancy bedrooms. Sophomores and juniors may also live on the York Hill Campus in apartment-style housing offered in the Crescent.

Juniors and seniors may select from available apartment-style housing 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 and some juniors may also select from available apartment-style housing at Eastview 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 first-come, first-served basis. Students have single bedrooms in the Crescent, Whitney Village or our university-owned houses and apartments.
