Campus information

The University's Mount Carmel Campus, resting in the shadow of Sleeping Giant State Park, is an architectural showcase of fine brickwork, with a soaring clock-tower above the library. This campus is home to most of our residence halls, academic buildings, University offices, recreation facilities and athletic fields.

Our York Hill Campus is home to the TD Bank Sports Center, the Rocky Top Student Center and residence halls.

The Center for Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, located on our North Haven Campus, is home to our School of Health Sciences, Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine, School of Law, School of Nursing and the School of Education. 

Quinnipiac's Mount Carmel Campus is located next to the picturesque Sleeping Giant Mountain in Hamden, Conn., a small New England community that is 90 minutes from New York City, two hours from Boston and just eight miles north of New Haven.


At Quinnipiac, about 4,800 students live in University-owned housing in traditional residence halls, suites, houses and apartments. Our residential life program provides a safe, comfortable environment that allows every student to make the most of the college experience. From the moment you move in to your room, you are part of a community that cares for you as an individual--a community that will help you become a self-assured and aware adult, ready for an independent and full life.

The Mount Carmel Campus is home to the First Year Residential Experience (FYRE) for first year students, the Sophomore Programming Initiative (SPIN) for sophomore students, the transfer student population, and five residential interest communities. Students living here will have an opportunity to live in suite-style, traditional or apartments.

The York Hill Campus includes extensive new apartment-style residence halls, a parking garage, the TD Bank Sports Center and the Rocky Top Student Center. Junior students live on the York Hill Campus in The Crescent residence hall and Westview. Senior students have the option of living in Eastview, The Townhouses at York Hill, the apartments at Whitney Village, and the University-owned off-campus houses in the local area.
