Keeping Hawks Healthy
UHart's Healthy Hawks Plan
Over the last year, we have remained committed to the safety and well-being of our entire campus community, while delivering an excellent and student-centered educational experience.
These priorities remain the same as we plan for a more traditional on-campus experience this fall. We anticipate returning to in-person classes as our primary course format, welcoming back more of our residential students, and resuming more in-person services and activities.
This website will continue to be updated with important information about our response to COVID-19.

As more COVID-19 vaccines become available in Connecticut, the University of Hartford is working to facilitate access to the vaccine for our students, faculty, and staff prior to the end of the spring semester.
All students attending college in Connecticut are now eligible for the vaccination. We are working on developing a plan that will enable all current students, including those who are not permanent Connecticut residents, to get vaccinated on campus, most likely in early May.
How to Keep Hawks Healthy—Our Safety Updates
A Pledge to Keep Our Campus and Community Safe and Stop the Spread of COVID-19
Our ability to safely re-open and remain on campus is dependent on how we behave as a community. We know at times the guidelines and expectations may seem inconvenient, uncomfortable, or even like an overreaction—but they are necessary—to protect ourselves and each other. We all have a vital role to play. Together, we must commit to safety practices and behaviors that protect our students, faculty, staff, and the larger community.
An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the CDC, older adults and those with underlying medical conditions, are especially vulnerable. By visiting UHart you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
