UHart should feel like home. That’s why we offer flexible living arrangements to match your individual lifestyle.
You will have access to various room types, study lounges, and free laundry facilities. We also allow you to choose your own roommate, and first-year students have the option of being a part of a Residential Learning Community.
For your convenience, dining halls, wellness facilities, and academic buildings are just a short walking distance away. Each living area has multiple Resident Assistants (RAs) and a full-time Resident Director (RD), who can help you when you have questions or concerns.
Coming Soon: The Village Apartments Renovations
It's an exciting time for UHart students to live on campus!
Our most popular student housing option, the Villages, are home to one third (more than 850) of our residential students. When classes end in May, the University will begin a complete renovation of all seven quads, containing 207 total apartments.
new village apartments
This $20 million renovation will include modernized plumbing, recessed lighting, upgraded bathrooms, and high-quality vinyl tile flooring throughout. Kitchens will have stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, and new cabinetry. In addition, new living room and bedroom furniture will be installed. The renovation will also increase the number of ADA-accessible and Kosher-compliant apartments in our inventory.
The project is slated to be completed by August 2022, in time for students to move back to campus this fall.
First-year students have the option to live in a Residential Learning Community (RLC). Our four RLCs provide students with a shared residential and academic experience where they connect with like-minded peers in Hawk Hall or Barnard.
Participants engage with faculty program staff and other students in weekly meetings, at Commons, or by attending RLC-specific activities that revolve around your passions. Students form study groups, play ping pong, and have late-night conversations with their classmates—who also happen to be their neighbors—in floor lounges.
Join us for a living and learning experience you won't forget.
New students apply to be a part of a Residential Learning Community by completing the "Residential Learning Community" section on the Housing Application found in Self-Service. Students can go back in to their application at any time to complete this section.
The priority deadline for a Residential Learning Community is Friday, May 6, 2022.
*Please note that each School or College has different academic requirements which may make it difficult for some students to participate in specific RLCs. Please contact the Center for Student Success (CSS) with any registration questions.

Through a series of guided activities, you will learn how to build relationships with upper-level Honors students and UHart alumni who can help guide your college experience and career trajectory. In addition to participating in University Honors events—including President's Reception for First-Year Honors Students, and the Undergraduate Research Colloquium—students will explore campus galleries, and take part in an Alumni panel. Participants will also take either Contemporary American Studies (HON162/USIC-D 212) or Italian Renaissance (HON161/USIA 130), as well as attend a weekly seminar throughout the fall semester. Students must be accepted as a University Honors student to apply; both Honors courses fulfill honors general education requirements for all the Colleges.
If you want to pursue wellness and healthy living and help others do the same, the Wellness Community is for you! Students who are part of the Wellness Community explore the many dimensions of wellness: physical, emotional, social, intellectual, environmental, financial, and spiritual wellness. As a member of this community, you will help engage peers in University wellness initiatives, support and encourage one another, improve your overall well-being, and promote healthy lifestyles on and off campus. Students will meet weekly throughout the fall semester in a 50 minute seminar to discuss projects, participate in activities, and coordinate new campus wellness initiatives. Special programming activities and events include meditation, nutrition challenges, self-care discussions, creation of a campus wellness trail, and Wellness Wednesday. Residents will also have also the opportunity to promote healthy lifestyles off campus, through volunteer experiences and participation in Hartford Marathon Day and Helping Hawks Day.
