How can you help? Join fellow parents and families in making a difference at UHart. We have seen firsthand the impact of parents sharing their time, expertise, and resources. From volunteering at an admission event to establishing scholarships or sharing internship opportunities, we are grateful for parent engagement!

Sending Mail to Your Student

Students love to get mail! Feel free to send them a letter, card, or care package (less than 35lbs.) to their on-campus address. Packages for off-campus students will not be accepted through Mail Services. If your student lives off-campus, please mail directly to their specific residential address.

On-campus mailing address:

Students First and Last Name
200 Bloomfield Ave
Student Mailbox Number
West Hartford, CT 06117

Please note: For safety reasons, do not put your student's ID number or e-mail on their package.

Emergency Text Notifications

The University of Hartford provides an emergency notification system that enables you to receive alerts and updates as text messages on cell phones and through their UHart email accounts. Sign up to receive text alerts.

At most universities, student life and academic services are distinct units with different goals and priorities. At the University of Hartford, Student Affairs and Academic Affairs exist together under one label: the Division of Student Success. We know that every student is different and we work collaboratively to celebrate and support each and every one.
