About UHart

Spread across seven dynamic schools and colleges, the University of Hartford has been guiding the purpose and passion of students for over six decades. On our 350-acre campus alongside Connecticut’s capital city, approximately 5,000 undergraduate and 1,800 graduate students from 48 states and 46 countries come together for a common purpose: to collaborate across different disciplines, diversify perspectives, and broaden worldviews.
We’re a four-year private university focused on advancing the public good through meaningful connections within our communities. Our unique approach to comprehensive education gives us the critical perspectives that lead to impactful change, regionally and beyond. With degree programs spanning the arts, humanities, business, engineering and technology, education, and health professions, we focus on doing the work that matters.

Why UHart?

Working full-time? Have some college credits already? Want to get your degree quickly? Nervous about paying for your education? Need someone help you through the process?

UHart has the answers to your questions about continuing your education or embarking upon a new degree or certificate. We know that time, money and dedication are the key ingredients to our adult students' successes. For some, that success means earning a Bachelors Degree, for some, success means getting an advanced degree or a certificate to further their career. What ever your reason, UHart can get you there. 

Let us help you create a pathway to success.  Our advisors personalize your educational experience based on your current situation, incorporating any existing credits and providing course suggestions.  One-on-one guidance means your time, money and efforts are maximized.

In addition to having an educational alliance with UHart, United Technologies financially supports the success of our engineering students by offering generous scholarships. This opportunity is available to engineering students in the University of Hartford’s College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA).
