The Esports program at the University of Hartford works with and develops exceptional students to succeed in today's constantly changing environment. The program is housed underneath the Athletics department. Stay engaged through an extensive structure that encourages and creates positive experiences, which ultimately provides an avenue toward your own personal growth and development throughout your college career.

The program is designed to facilitate and work with your educational aspirations and career goals. It is unique in that there is no limit to the number of students that can be involved, and there are opportunities to be involved in so many ways—even outside of the competitive structure itself.

Ultimately, UHart's Esports is designed for students; you are our focus and after completing your time with us, we are certain that you will have gained something that will benefit you.

Note, we have a zero-tolerance policy for toxicity and negativity, the two most damaging aspects of competitive gaming to both students and the larger community.

Academic Expectations

This program understands that you are a student first. You will never have a practice during class, and we will do everything in our power to ensure competitive matches do not conflict with your class schedule.

Year-Long Season

This program is designed to adapt to the ever-changing world of competitive gaming, and because of that, we allow teams to be formed at any time, for any game that has an established, competitive gaming structure (league, conference, tournaments, etc). Students are given an opportunity to prove themselves, in their game of choice, to bring that into our sponsored category.
