Welcome to UConn Nation

With 10 schools and colleges offering undergraduate degrees, UConn is a top research university that provides students unparalleled access to hands-on learning opportunities.

At UConn, students are encouraged to pursue their passions and learn what they love—your community of peers will inspire you, challenge you, and make your best better every day.  

An inspiring environment
Located in the heart of the Northeast, UConn’s proximity to New York City and Boston makes for an energizing environment. The safe main campus in Storrs has everything students need or want, and cafés, shops, and restaurants are just steps away in downtown Storrs. With one of the highest percentages of students living on campus of any public university in the nation, your friends will always be around—days, nights, and weekends. Residence halls, suites, and apartments each have their own ammenities, from volleyball courts to makerspaces. 

Find your fit
Over 700 clubs and organizations allow students to pursue their interests outside the classroom—and the four art galleries and five theaters on campus ensure there are plenty of options to choose from on a night off from your studies. Explore your passions further by joining one of over 30 Learning Communities, 20 of which are residential. Investigate an area of interest based on your major or interdisciplinary theme through guided courses and cocurricular activities. 

UConn’s five cultural centers serve as resources for the richly diverse and inclusive campus community comprised of students from more than 90 different countries. If exploration is what interests you, Education Abroad offers 135 unique programs, including study, internship, research, and service learning opportunities in 35 countries. 

Transformational learning
UConn’s Office of Undergraduate Research will guide you in individualized research, scholarship, and creative activity. Together, you’ll find and develop opportunities to engage in independent or collaborative research with faculty across UConn’s academic disciplines. Our nearly 20 different global institutes, centers, and programs ranging from Eurotech to the Center for International Business Education and Research give students the opportunity to engage with diverse cultures, societies, and languages.  

Bleed Blue
Spirit. Pride. Tradition. Students past and present will tell you there’s nothing quite like the UConn community. We’re tied together by the rush of cheering for our championship athletic teams and boundless love for our school. Winning is just one of UConn’s many traditions: women’s basketball holds the longest winning streak of any college basketball team, while men’s basketball and the field hockey team are both four-time national champions. With 24 Division I athletic teams to root for, there’s no shortage of Husky pride on campus. 

Students today, Huskies forever
