Off Campus Housing: AQ Community House

In an effort to increase options for student housing and to strengthen Aquinas College's relationship with its neighbors in the Eastown Neighborhood, the College has created the AQ Community House Program. The program combines opportunities for community leadership and service learning, while giving students real-world responsibilities in a residential environment. AQ Community House
