3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I've never seen houses off campus, but I'm sure that their dorms are just as nice as ours and they get as much protection as we do.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Most people live in Aspen which is a great place to live. It is very clean and pretty affordable if with a group.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Off-campus housing is often something many seniors look forward to, as a chance to experience real independence as a college student at Quinnipiac University. There is a pretty good selection of off-campus properties for students to choose from, and Quinnipiac owns many houses within two to five miles from main campus, as well. These houses usually hold from six to 10 people. The student pays the University a room and board portion of their tuition, but they are responsible for their own food, cable, and Internet. There is no University-supported cleaning service that cleans the houses.

The University also owns the Whitney Village apartment complex. The complex has a '70s-like feel, but it's a very popular option among students wanting to experience a more independent lifestyle. There are also many apartments that students can choose from in Hamden. The most desirable apartment complexes are Aspen Glen and Town Walk, located in the Hamden Hills area, just five minutes away from Quinnipiac. Apartments are either one- or two-bedroom accommodations, ranging between $1,200 and $2,000 a month.
