Aquinas House, known as AQ, is the Catholic Campus Ministry and Student Center at Dartmouth College. It is a ministry of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Manchester, N.H., and provides the sacramental, liturgical, pastoral, and spiritual ministry of the Catholic Church to Dartmouth students. AQ is a vibrant community of faith in which each person is strengthened to grow closer to God through Jesus Christ and to live out the Catholic faith in daily life. All baptized Catholic undergraduate and graduate students comprise the ministry of Aquinas House and this community of faith. It is here that the Catholic faith is taught, celebrated, and lived, through a variety of spiritual, educational, and social activities. All Dartmouth students, Catholic and non-Catholic, are welcome at all events and activities.
All students are welcome to use our facility as a place to pray, study, socialize, and relax. Here you can share your faith and your questions, be of service to others, and integrate the spiritual, social, and academic aspects of your college life. The Campus Ministers are here to serve you and are available to all Dartmouth students and their families, Catholic and non-Catholic, for support in faith and spiritual development, moments of crisis, grief, difficulties in college life, or just when there is a need to talk over something. Preparation for the reception of the Sacraments and assistance to those who have been away from the Church is also provided. The priest chaplains are friars of the Order of Friars Preachers, commonly known as the Dominicans.
Our facilities include: St. Clement Chapel, library, offices, game room, computer room, study lounge, TV room, and kitchen and hall.
Aquinas House is located at the corner of Webster Avenue and Occom Ridge.
