The Northwest Quad (NWQ) is located on the north side of campus adjacent to North Eagleville Road and is a short walk to the many of the Science academic buildings and center of campus including the Student Union and the Jorgensen.
The NWQ is primarily comprised of first year students and is a designated first-year area outside of the learning communities. The Northwest Quad houses over 1,000 students and is considered a traditional-style residence community that is focused on supporting students’ personal, interpersonal, and intellectual growth through engaging community opportunities. These communities are designed to help students adjust to college life and transition to community style living.
