UConn has come home to Hartford.
UConn Hartford opened in August 2017—and with it comes a new era of vibrance and vitality for Hartford. More than 3,100 students and 300 faculty members will now enjoy all that downtown Hartford has to offer, bringing a new energy to our capital city.
"This is one of the most significant things UConn and the state will do in our lifetime."
- UConn President Susan Herbst in The Connecticut Mirror
“The diversity at UConn Hartford allows students to learn from people of every background, from every corner of the world. I’m from Vietnam, and I know people from China, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh. I love learning about their cultures.”
- Khang Nguyen ’20, a communication and political science double major, is involved on campus as a Husky Ambassador, the event coordinator for World Club, and a member of Psychology Club and UConn Harts Community Outreach Society. He participates in the Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) at the Storrs campus and plans to become a lawyer after serving in the military.
"The fact that you're bringing essentially 2,000 people into the city every day — a combination of faculty and students — is a significant impact."
- Oz Griebel, (former) president and chief executive, MetroHartford Alliance, in The Hartford Courant
