Campus Life & Events

Connections outside of the classroom—with friends, roommates, colleagues, classmates, clubs and organizations—are all an important part of the overall UHart experience. Our student life and success teams continue to research and develop new and exciting ways to further enable students to safely engage and interact with one another virtually and in person.

Recent Event Updates

It is out of an abundance of caution that effective Friday, March 13, the University is postponing or canceling non-essential events or work-related gatherings scheduled to take place on campus until the foreseeable future.


We will hold a combined Commencement 2020 ceremony at the end of the calendar year, bringing together those who would have been recognized in May 2020 with our graduates eligible for our December 2020 Commencement.

After consulting with deans and student leaders to discuss the best option among the limited dates available in December at downtown Hartford’s XL Center, we have selected Tuesday, Dec. 15, at noon, as the date and time for our Commencement 2020 ceremony.  


We know it is is important for families to visit campus before students officially commit to attend. We are excited to being offering tours throughout the month of June. Following the guidelines from our governor and the CDC, these will be mainly outdoor walking tours, and will limit the number of guests, practice social distancing, and require everyone to wear masks at all times.
