Quest is a community that fosters intellectual stimulation for students.
As Honors and/or President’s Leadership students, you have the option to live in Quest Housing during your first year at CNU. Quest, housed in York River Hall, provides you with an atmosphere that fosters productive studying and lifelong friendships.
Our Quest students hail from all parts of Virginia, as well as other states such as Connecticut, Maryland, New York, and Texas. These students are involved in the President's Leadership Program, the Honors Program, and every CNU major.
"Quest housing greatly enhanced my experience in the Honors and PLP programs, as well as my overall experience at CNU. It was nice to have friends from many of my classes right down the hall both for academic and social interactions. Many friendships fostered that first year in quest housing continue to this day, 3 years post graduation."

"Quest housing was one of the best decisions I could have made entering my Freshman year. It allowed me an opportunity to not only focus on my studies, get enough sleep as a varsity sports player, but also have fun getting to know so many different people. Between scooters down the hallways, everyone hanging out at all hours, and fun hall events, I never found myself regretting the decision. Quest housing students know how to work hard and are respectful of each other, but they also know how to have fun and let loose around each other."

"Living in Quest housing balanced many of the pulls and distractions of freshman year in a very healthy way. I was always able to study when I needed to and sleep when I wanted to, but there were always some people doing something fun when I wanted to play. And the people in Quest are amazing- smart, challenging, energetic people; almost all of my best friends now lived in Quest housing, and they are some of the most respectable people I know. Its impossible not to be happy and successful when surrounded by such incredible people!"

"Quest is an awesome opportunity to meet people with similar goals and similar experiences as you, and to know that you have those same people to lean on when you're struggling in a class. It makes those first few weeks at college ten times easier because you know that you have a great group of friends right across the hall."
