At Quincy University, we strive to make our campus a place where students feel included and welcome. We want every experience on campus designed for student success, and our House System creates a positive foundation for our students. QU’s House System helps to ensure that all QU students succeed and thrive, whether they live on or off-campus.
QU’s House System includes seven houses, each named for a person who has made important contributions to Quincy University, the Franciscan tradition, or Quincy or the surrounding region. Every new student, including transfer students and commuter students, is assigned to a house. Students remain a member of the same house throughout their time at the university, no matter where they live. Each house has a unique crest, motto, and mascot and takes part in recreational and service activities, with competitions between houses.

Quincy University Houses earn points when members demonstrate dedication, positive contribution, accomplishment, and quality to the campus community. Points can be given at any time throughout the academic year. At the end of the year the house with the most points will be awarded the Friars Cup.
