Quinnipiac University

Hamden
Quinnipiac University

A private, coeducational university, Quinnipiac offers graduate and undergraduate programs in a technology-rich environment.

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.

Our History

Quinnipiac began as a small college in New Haven in 1929. In the early 1960s, Quinnipiac purchased land across from Sleeping Giant State Park, which is now the Mount Carmel Campus. Quinnipiac transitioned from a college to a university in 2000, and has since grown into a national university with eight schools and colleges and two additional campuses.

"Quinnipiac," pronounced (KWIN-uh-pe-ack), is an altered version of a Native American word. Theories differ on the word's exact meaning. Some sources, such as "The Quinnipiack Indians and Their Reservation," written in 1900, assert that the name Quinni-pe-auke means "long-water land or country" and that Quinnipiack means "people from the long-water land." Later sources claim the word Quinnipiac apparently derives from quinnuppin-uk, defined as "a turning point" or "to make a change in the direction of travel." Both definitions seem appropriate for Quinnipiac, which is near a long tidal river and which marks a turning point in students' lives.

Our Mission

An education at Quinnipiac embodies the University's commitment to three core values: high-quality academic programs, a student-oriented environment and a strong sense of community. The University prepares undergraduate and graduate students for achievement and leadership in business, communications, engineering, health, education, law, medicine, nursing and the liberal arts and sciences.

Quinnipiac University educates students to be valued and contributing members of their communities through a vital, challenging and purposeful educational program. Students engage real-world issues through practice and the consideration of different perspectives. The University's innovative QU seminar series further prepares undergraduates to understand their role and responsibilities as members of the Quinnipiac community, as well as the larger national and global communities.
