Upcoming Orientation Sessions

Your Virtual Introduction to Campus

Although Orientation will be delivered a little differently due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are still very excited for you to learn how to make the University of Hartford feel like your home away from home.

  • Learn how to take advantage of opportunities for a successful beginning of your college career
  • Begin friendships with fellow incoming students
  • Receive academic advising information
  • Hear from some of our faculty and staff and learn about the first-year experience at UHart. 
Summer Series

Over the summer, you will also have a chance to join a series of webinars and interactive sessions on a wide variety of topics, including student support services, billing and financial aid, academic advising, residential life, engagement opportunities, honors, dining, and more! These sessions are optional and you can choose those you are interested in.

We're so excited to virtually meet you this summer. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us so that we can help!

All students connect with each other through our social application



We know that meeting other students and making new friends is a huge part of your college experience. That's why we have partnered with ZeeMee, a social application. Similar to Instagram you will be able to watch videos and posts from other students, introduce yourself, and create smaller communities to get all your questions answered. There is even a roommate matching feature. You will be invited to this platform through text prior to Orientation.
