4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in Dana English Hall and I absolutely loved it. The double rooms are the biggest that I've seen doing college tours. The RA's doing a great job of getting residents to meet one another. Most of the dorms are only about a five minute walk to main campus, but Mountainview (freshman suite dorm) is probably more like ten to fifteen minutes!

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Well my experience was bad because my roommate was constantly trying to kill herself and the other one was disrespectful. She would come into the room very early in the morning very loudly knowing that I can an early class in the morning. I hope this year, I will have a better experience.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing process tends to be stressful. Housing itself is generally average depending on where you're living.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: It seems that one serious emerging problem with housing on campus is that there isn't enough room for everyone. There aren't enough dorms for the class size, so they are squeezing more people into each room. The quality of the housing is definitely above average, though.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Freshman year housing roommates and rooming are random. Mountainview is easily the best location, commons is one of the worst. Honestly though, I think it is what you make of it.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Quinnipiac University boasts a wide variety of housing options for its students. Freshmen and sophomores live on Quinnipiac's main campus, Mt. Carmel. Since the construction of York Hill, with juniors living on this satellite campus, Mt. Carmel dorms have been seriously freed up in space. Freshmen used to be crammed in to forced triples in the Irma and Dana residence halls; now, freshmen can live comfortably with only two to a room. The suites used to be for the sophomores, but with the York Hill re-shifting, the suites have been given to the freshmen. Many RAs feel that freshmen are not really ready to handle sharing one suite with six people, as the change has already lead to several partying issues.

In terms of upperclassman options, sophomores now live where the juniors used to reside, so their living spaces are quite nice and roomy compared to other schools' dorm setups. They live in groups of seven, eight, nine, or 10, depending on the dorm. It is usually a dramatic time of year when students must pick whom and how many people they want to live with. Quinnipiac uses a lottery system for selecting housing. All students living on campus are within walking distance to their classes, with a 20-minute walk at the most. Juniors reside in the newly-built York Hill campus. Rooms are apartment-like suites with a fully-functioning kitchen and common room. There are three bedrooms per suite, two people to a room. The feedback that has been received is that the suites at York Hill are too small for six people. Juniors can either drive to main or North Haven campuses for classes (and hope there is a parking space), or take the shuttle. In 2010, Quinnipiac offered senior housing for the first time, calling the project the "Senior Housing Experience." Senior students can live in apartments in Whitney Village, The Westview at York Hill, The Townhouses at York Hill, or the University-owned houses within the local community.
