Quinnipiac University is known for its beautiful, aesthetically pleasing campus. Over the past couple of years, Quinnipiac has made a tremendous effort in its expansion. The main campus is known as the Mt. Carmel campus, located on Mt. Carmel Avenue. The Mt. Carmel campus is home to Quinnipiac's famed Arnold Bernhard Library, academic buildings, residence halls, and quad. The library is a two-story picturesque building, but it's often overpopulated. With a higher number of students attending Quinnipiac each year, the library is running out of seats and cubbies for everyone. In 2010, students were told they had to reserve a study room if they wanted to use it, unlike previous years where they could just take it if it was open. Maintenance does a great job of maintaining the campus grounds and indoor areas. Freshman and sophomore residence halls are cleaned daily, along with all public bathrooms.
The University has two new campuses. The York Hill campus is its upperclassman campus, located about five minutes away from main campus. York Hill is a brand-new, state-of-the-art $300 million residence hall and student center that sits atop a hill with sprawling views of Hamden and New Haven. Finished in 2010, the residence hall houses more than 1,000 students. The student center has a ski lodge feel to it, with wooden staircases and a live burning fire in the winter. Equipped with a gym, cafeteria, study and conference rooms, York Hill is enviable of other college dorms. The other new campus is the North Haven campus, home to all health science classes and graduate programs. The building is a refurbished Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield building that contains state-of-the-art medical equipment and beautiful study areas. This campus also has a gym and a cafeteria.
