Quinnipiac University 9th in Northeast

Published on March 2nd, 2011

In its most recent survey, U.S. News & World Report ranks Quinnipiac University, an ongoing client of Centerbrook’s since 1978, in the top ten of colleges in the Northeast offering a full range of undergraduate and master’s level programs. The magazine also selected the University, which is located in Hamden, Connecticut, as number two in the region in the Up-and-Coming School category.

The publication’s website describes Quinnipiac, which has 5,700 undergraduate and 2,000 graduate students, as having a “uniquely attractive Mount Carmel Campus of 250 acres,” “excellent facilities” such as the Ed McMahon Center for Mass Communications, the TD Bank Sports Center, and two new campuses, one on York Hill in Hamden, CT and a new Graduate School Campus in North Haven, CT.
In addition to designing the facilities listed above, Centerbrook has been the architect for more than 50 projects at Quinnipiac as it helps the University implement the Campus Master Plan Centerbrook developed in 1978. Led by partner Jefferson B. Riley, FAIA, Centerbrook designed the Law School, the Lender School of Business, an expanded and renovated Arnold Bernhard Library, the College of Arts and Sciences, numerous residence halls, student centers, dining halls, recreation facilities, a 2,000-car parking garage, and a wind farm located in the heart of the York Hill Campus.
At the school’s new 104-acre North Haven Campus, Centerbrook designed a new home for the university’s School of Health Sciences and is currently designing a new Medical School slated to open 2013-2014.
