College Experience

Be a college student for two weeks on our campus and experience what it's like to be a Barney School of Business student at the University of Hartford! 

Receive College Credit

Getting ahead and receiving credit for a college level course will not only differentiate you when you apply to colleges, it will also allow you to learn which business discipline is right for you.

Live on Campus

During this program, you will stay in one of our newest residential facilities and experience what college is really like. You will live in this residence hall with an assigned roommate. While there will be homework to complete in the evening hours, there are also planned activities for social engagement and building lifelong friendships. Did we mention that we have a Starbucks on campus?

Immerse Yourself

Through the duration of your stay here at the University, you will feel more and more like a Hartford Hawk. Apart from staying in the residence halls, you will dine at the University with your peers in the program. You will also have the opportunity to explore the shops and restaurants in the area.
