LOOK TO THE FUTURE

UConn is excited to move to its dynamic new campus in downtown Hartford, where it will interweave top-tier academic programs with the vitality and unique educational and service opportunities offered by Connecticut’s capital city.

In August 2017, the operations of UConn’s West Hartford campus will move to a site anchored by the former Hartford Times building. This will create a neighborhood campus fully intertwined with the nearby cultural institutions and state and city government offices, including Hartford Public Library, which will house 12,000 square feet of UConn classrooms, a library collection, and study areas. We’re also bringing a new Barnes & Noble bookstore downtown.

UConn will utilize classroom space at buildings in the neighborhood; The School of Social Work will move to 38 Prospect Street.
