Enriching Student Life

UHart isn't all fun and games, but honestly, some of it is. Just because a UHart education is rigorous doesn't mean we don't know how to relax. In fact, some of the deepest friendships you make here are likely to start when you play intramural sports, participate in student government, join an a cappella group or any one of our more than 100 clubs.

Extraordinary Support

We aren't the same and we were never meant to be. Part of the beauty of UHart is that we encourage our students to embrace their college experience, and we provide the support to help them do it, every step of the way. UHart students have access to an exceptional Center for Student Success. Whether you need help in or out of the classroom, we're here for you.

Go Hawks!

Beyond our 17 Division I sports and winning teams, we're committed to being top scholar-athletes. A 3.37 combined GPA reflects our dedication to academic priorities as well as strong sportsmanship.

Ideal Location

Why UHart

Surrounded by green spaces and wooded trails, our 350-acre campus is situated at the crossroads of three towns: Hartford, West Hartford and Bloomfield.  In addition to our proximity to the capital city, University of Hartford is only two hours from Boston and New York City.  Our location offers plenty of opportunities to explore New England's vibrant culture, cities, beaches, and mountains. It also means we've forged relationships with many different companies and organizations, making internships and other professional options readily accessible.

Unlike Any Other.

Good universities give you the skills you need to get started in your chosen field. Great universities give you that and more: the lifelong ability to question, discover, change, and grow.
