QC just built a new dormitory in 2009 called the Summit, and it's the school's first residence hall. Students say the building was built in a hurry and is poorly maintained, but the dorm offers a number of resources and facilities to students, including a fitness center, wireless Internet, bike racks, laundry facilities, music practice rooms, and a flex space for events and seminars. Students may live with a roommate for about $4,700 or pay up to $7,500 for their own room. Several QC students work as residential assistants (RAs) at the dorms and their job is not only to ensure safety and security amongst students, but to also plan events encouraging students to get involved on campus. RAs are unpaid, but they are provided with their own apartment.
Each room in the Summit includes a common living area, a kitchen, and a bath. Students’ rooms are furnished with in-room control of heat and air conditioning. The kitchenette consists of a full-size refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, and sink. Pricing includes all utilities, including wireless Internet, basic cable, and a ten-month contract (although shorter and longer terms may be available). There is an optional meal plan available through Chartwells at an additional price. Parking is also available through Public Safety for an additional fee. The buildings are supervised 24 hours a day, and student support services are provided for students living on campus. Students may also live in the dorms during school breaks.
