Information for New Parents

Profound support. It's what brings us together and sets us apart.

Parent Network

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! 

Interested in getting involved? Learn more about our Parent Network.

At the University of Hartford we know a student's success in college takes a village. Over the next four years, your student's village will include faculty, fellow students and you–their family! 

Here we've assembled resources for you to help your child succeed during their time at UHart. Below you can learn about everything from upcoming family events, where to send a care package, see the academic calendar, and learn how to add money to your child's HawkCard.

We welcome you and your family to the unique environment that is the University of Hartford.

Resources for the Fall Semester

Orientation Summer Series

To make sure that your student is prepared for the start of the semester, we are hosting a series of summer webinars on a wide variety of topics that you and your student can participate in together.

Next Steps

In order for your student to be prepared for the start of the fall semester there are several important steps that need to be completed. These topics range from housing and dining to getting a school ID and preparing for move-in.

Billing

UHart partnered with CASHNet Systems to deliver bills via e-mail rather than by U.S. mail. When the bill is ready to be viewed, students receive a message through their University e-mail account.

Keeping Hawks Healthy

Life at UHart will look different in the fall—it has to—but we are committed to working together to act in the best interest of the safety and well-being of our entire campus community, while delivering an excellent student-centered educational experience. 

Virtual Experience

Parent Hour Webinars

Your child's move to college isn't just about transition for them. It's a transition for you too. We invite you to join our Parent Hour, a series of webinars on popular topics commonly faced by students and families in their first year. At each session, faculty and staff will present on a timely topic followed by a Q&A session. This is a great way to get your questions answered, stay connected, and learn about the University. 

Resources for Students

We recognize this is a challenging time for students and families, and we want to help in any way we can. Below are a list of resources available:

Student Life & Support

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.
