Quinnipiac University is constructing three new buildings at its Mount Carmel campus in Hamden, Conn.

The $244 million project will create the South Quad, which will consist of two academic buildings and a 417-bed residence hall, the university says in a news release. 

The project will be funded through a combination of the university’s endowment, philanthropic efforts and debt financing.

The buildings at the South Quad will be between Tator Hall and the College of Arts and Sciences on the southern part of the campus. The proposed new buildings:

  • School of Business – The 79,000-square-foot School of Business will feature a Business Innovation Hub as an incubator to build and test new ideas; a financial technology center; faculty offices; and flexible lecture and event space that can seat up to 150 people. An environmentally conscious central energy plant also will be housed below the School of Business.

  • General academic building – This 137,000-square-foot facility will feature wet and dry labs, a greenhouse and vivarium (animal habitat), space to expand Quinnipiac's computing programs, classrooms, collaborative spaces for breakout and group study, deans’ and faculty offices. In addition, the building will have an auditorium to seat 600 to 800 people.

  • Residence hall – A 417-bed facility will include group gathering spaces, lounges, and an outdoor courtyard.

All three buildings will be designed to receive LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification.

All buildings are scheduled to open in 2024.
