Quinnipiac Univ. receives final approval for $293M South Quad project

Quinnipiac University has received final approval to construct three buildings – a new school of business, an academic building and a residence hall – at its Hamden campus, part of the school’s controversial South Quad project. Construction is expected to begin this winter, with the new buildings opening during the 2024-25 academic year, the school announced Thursday. The $293 million project includes an academic building, which will span about 142,000 square feet, along with an 80,000-square-foot business school and 417-bed residence hall for first-year students. On Tuesday, the commission approved the final site development plan, the last step before work can begin. The Quinnipiac Board of Trustees approved the project in January. Construction will be funded through a combination of the university’s endowment, philanthropic efforts and debt financing.
