Graduate Student Experience
Graduate students contribute greatly to making UHart the vibrant community that it is. During their time here, our graduate students enrich our lives and then go forward to continue on in their successful careers.
We know our graduate students have a lot on their plate, so we've developed a number of ways students can feel a part of the campus community while also achieving their goals of personal and professional growth.
Health & Well Being Resources
We offer many services and activities to allow you to take a break from academics and focus on your mental health and well-being.
Sports & Fitness
Inside our 13,000-square-foot Sports Center, you can work out in our newly renovated fitness facility or take a dip in our swimming pool. Facilities include a weight room, a basketball court, treadmills, bikes, and ellipticals. We also offer a wide range of sports-related activities, including soccer, flag football, softball, and volleyball.
Counseling and Psychological Services
University of Hartford’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) provides a range of short-term counseling and psychological services to the University community.
UHart’s Student Health Services is a proud partner with Hartford HealthCare to help students feel their best.
Keeping Hawks Healthy
The University of Hartford is constantly assessing ways to keep our community healthy. We encourage you to visit our Keeping Hawks Healthy page to see the latest updates on health and wellness around campus.
Student Success Resources
Center for Student Success
The Center for Student Success is available to support students in all aspects of the learning process.
Career Services & Professional Development
The Office of Career and Professional Development is an excellent resource for our graduate students who might be looking to change their career path, or improve upon the path they are currently on!
The Harrison Libraries
The Harrison Libraries provide a wide range of services and resources to all University of
Hartford students, faculty, staff, and visitors. The Libraries have a variety of rooms and spaces for classes, meetings, collaboration, study, and for listening to and viewing audio-visual materials. Students can also enjoy a Starbucks® drink at the location on site!
University Tutoring Center
The University Tutoring center offers generalist writing tutoring, both in person and remote, for graduate students. Most recently, the Tutoring Center has extended its evening and weekend hours to provide as much flexibility as possible. Students seeking generalist writing tutoring should email email@example.com with their request. All requests are handled by the Assistant Director, Laura Corey, who will facilitate the initial appointment in Compass.
The University of Hartford has several new housing options for our graduate students, including the recent renovation of existing housing, and future plans to renovate additional spaces.
We have designed our graduate housing so students like you can focus on the other important things in front of you as you prepare for your studies. The renovations upgraded the spaces and made them feel like home without the added stress of securing housing, finding furniture, and coordinating utilities.
Some highlights of the units are below:
- Housing communities are composed of only graduate students and feature fully renovated single bedrooms, bathrooms, and shared living spaces.
- Two bedroom- one bath and 3 bedroom- two bath units are available.
- Units are conveniently located to your classes, lab spaces and the library.
- Facilities are completely furnished including bedroom, living room, and kitchen furniture as well as kitchen appliances and a microwave.
- All utilities including water, electricity, trash, and heat and air conditioning are included.
- Flexible lease opportunities based on your needs (12, 10, and 2 month options).

Connecting With Students, Alumni & Area Partners
Graduate Student Government Association (GSGA)
In the spring of 2022, to further foster and strengthen the graduate student community at the University of Hartford, the Graduate Student Government Association was created. The Graduate Student Government Association (GSGA) supports the UHart graduate student community and represents student views related to graduate programs and services across the university. The GSGA serves as the governing body to provide oversight to formally recognized graduate student clubs and organizations. The GSGA is open to all graduate students.
To learn more about the Graduate Student Government Association or to begin the process of proposing a graduate student club or organization, email Dr. Jessica Nicklin, Assistant Provost for Graduate Studies and Research at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With a network of over 85,000 alumni, our students have access to peers in the industry who are an excellent resource for professional connection and support.
With the University of Hartford being conveniently situated in close proximity to Hartford, and only two hours from Boston and New York, we are able to develop strong relationships with area leaders in the nonprofit, business, and arts communities. These partnerships afford our students the opportunity to create professional connections they can use for academic support and career advancement.
