Commencement Updates for the Classes of 2020 and 2021
After evaluating different scenarios for several months, we are please to share Commencement Weekend will take place on May 15 and May 16 at the XL Center in downtown Hartford.
UHart will host six separate ceremonies at the XL Center during the weekend of May 15-16. This venue gives the UHart community the best option to safely welcome our graduates with guests, without additional weather concerns related to outdoor ceremonies. These ceremonies will be streamlined to keep the focus were it belongs—on our graduates!
The different ceremonies will take place at 8:30 a.m., 2 p.m., and 7:30 p.m. Learn more here.

Student Life & Support
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.
