Quinnipiac University

About Quinnipiac University

Quinnipiac University is a private, coeducational university with 5,600 undergraduate and 1,900 graduate students. Consistently ranked among the best universities by U.S. News & World Report, Quinnipiac (pronounced KWIN-uh-pe-ack) offers 52 undergraduate majors and 20 graduate programs plus the JD program.

Located next to the picturesque Sleeping Giant Mountain in Hamden, Conn., 90 minutes from New York City and two hours from Boston, Quinnipiac’s campus is an architectural gallery of modern brick buildings and sweeping lawns. Their remarkable facilities include the Terry W. Goodwin '67 Financial Technology Center and a fully digital high-definition broadcast studio. They’re also home to the nationally renowned Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

At the heart of Quinnipiac is their commitment to teaching and collaboration. Quinnipiac fosters partnerships among students and with faculty; they are a spirited, welcoming campus.

Quinnipiac is a small university offering big opportunities.You’ll find top-rated academic programs, classes averaging 25 students and a faculty-to-student ratio of 16 to 1—plus Division I athletics. Those are just some of the reasons why Quinnipiac is consistently ranked among the best universities offering undergraduate and master's degree programs by U.S. News & World Report and The Princeton Review.

In their hands, technology offers amazing hands-on experiences. Students simulate buying and selling stocks in the Terry W. Goodwin '67 Financial Technology Center, produce news packages in the fully digital high-definition broadcast studio and study how the human body moves in the motion analysis laboratory. Plus a broad range of speakers visits campus each year.

Quinnipiac is all about students. Collaborative, innovative teaching is so important to them that they give annual awards to professors who do it best. Their faculty members are experts in their field, generous with their time and eager to share their knowledge. But that’s not all. They also give annual awards to staff members who offer great service. Students will experience that in the career services office, the Learning Center and elsewhere.

Quinnipiac offers the best of small-town spirit. You’ll feel it the moment a huge team of upperclassmen help you unload your car and move into your freshman residence. You’ll feel it at meals—faculty and students eat in the same dining hall. And you’ll feel it in their small classes.

Quinnipiac is forever. Because of the unique, mind-shaping, life-expanding experiences they had there, Quinnipac friends stay in contact by joining a prestigious group of 30,000 members—Quinnipiac’s Alumni Association. A continuous schedule of events ensures alumni stay in touch with favorite professors, classmates, teammates, fraternity brothers and sorority sisters nationwide.
