UHart is Excited to Host In-Person Open Houses This Fall

Two students working on campus

Like many colleges and universities navigating through the various stages of COVID-19, the University of Hartford shifted much of its programming, including events, to be virtual over the past year and a half. With careful planning, new hope with vaccinations, and a campus-wide commitment to the health and safety of the community, we are excited to have a more traditional in-person experience for our students and community this fall. After safely and successfully welcoming more than 1,150 students to campus last month, the University is now preparing to welcome prospective students to campus this fall to experience what it’s like to be a Hartford Hawk in person.
The University of Hartford will host on-campus events for prospective students during open houses scheduled for Oct. 3, Oct. 24, and Nov. 7. Knowing that visiting campus is an integral part of the college search experience and selecting a school that is the right fit—UHart has created a Campus Visit Grant, in the amount of $500, applied toward full-time tuition. Students in the fall of their junior or senior year, who attend one of the three open houses, will be awarded the grant if they submit an enrollment deposit by May and are enrolled in a full-time degree program. This is in addition to the academic scholarship offered at the time of admission. More details on eligibility can be found here.

With the proper safety precautions in place, students and their families will be able to visit campus, participate in tours, and learn more about our 100+ academic programs. Set up in a true “open-house” style, guests will be able to navigate the campus and select scheduled events that allow them to experience UHart in a way that works for them. A featured event of the open houses will be to tour our newly opened 60,000-square-foot academic building, the Francis X. and Nancy Hursey Center for Advanced Engineering and Health Professions. The Hursey Center features technology-rich and state-of-the art labs, makerspaces, and simulation classrooms designed for students interested in the growing fields of engineering and the health professions.
For families who are interested in attending, please visit our event page at for more information on the registration process, health and safety guidelines, and for a list of sample events.
Beyond the scheduled open houses, we have a number of opportunities for students to visit campus both virtually and in-person this fall. Visit for more information.
