North Haven Campus
Just a short drive from the Mount Carmel Campus in Hamden, the North Haven Campus will also house the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine when it opens in Fall 2013. Plans are also underway for a new School of Law Center on the campus.
The University purchased the 104-acre Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield campus from Wellpoint, Inc., in September 2007. The University renovated an existing 180,000-square-foot building on the campus, which now serves as home to the School of Health Sciences, the School of Nursing and the School of Education. Renovations to a second building, the future home of the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine, will be complete in summer 2013. The two buildings will comprise the Center for Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences.
The School of Health Sciences and School of Nursing facility features $3.5 million in cutting-edge equipment, allowing our highly-ranked health sciences programs to grow and flourish. Its modern facilities encourage collaborative research and projects between faculty and students, and also across disciplines.
The facility includes 12 classrooms; 16 seminar rooms and team-study rooms; 24 teaching labs; a model apartment to teach students how to provide care in residential settings; a SimMan suite of life-size patient simulators; and a pediatric and neonatal lab. It also boasts cutting-edge equipment, including magnetic resonance simulators and 3-D workstations.
Faculty and administrative offices for the School of Health Sciences, the School of Nursing and the School of Education are also located here. The building has a full-service dining hall featuring hot entrée choices, sandwiches, salads, soups, to-go snacks and coffee. The cafeteria includes dining tables and a lounge area overlooking a pond.
For students' convenience, the registrar, bursar and the bookstore also have a presence on the North Haven Campus. It is equipped with the wireless campus network and a Health Sciences Library, which is part of the Arnold Bernhard Library. In addition to complete access to the Bernhard Library collection, the Health Sciences collection contains 75 core print journals and more than 700 books selected to support the programs at North Haven.
The campus also offers opportunities for recreation, including outdoor walking trails and a yoga room; a fitness center is planned. The North Haven Campus is just a short distance from Wharton Brook State Park. Located on wooded, sandy knolls, the park features a pond, open spaces and picnic tables.
Center for Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences
Quinnipiac University's Center for Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences is under construction and will be opening Fall 2013.
The facility, which will be home to the School of Health Sciences, the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine and the School of Nursing, includes 325,000 square feet designed for collaborative learning for students pursuing degrees in medicine, nursing and the health professions. The existing health sciences and nursing facility on the campus will be connected to the new facility by a common atrium and entrance.
The renovation adds an operating room suite with two additional high fidelity simulation rooms, 48 pro-section stations, 16 standardized patient rooms, multiple team study rooms, student lounges and a vending area, an expanded health sciences library, a 350-seat auditorium, 17 additional classrooms and 10 seminar rooms that will seat from 12 to 150 students.
The renovation of buildings on the North Haven are conducted with many "green" initiatives in mind. Environmentally-friendly features include:
- Energy-efficient heating and cooling units
- Energy-efficient lighting fixtures
- Low VOC paint
- Green Guard-certified carpeting
- New windows with energy-efficient thermal glazing
The North Haven Campus strives to be an environmental steward with its recycling programs, its use of environmentally friendly cleaning supplies as well as reduction in energy use across the campus.
