Welcome to UConn Stamford

Welcome to the UConn Stamford campus.  Located in downtown Stamford, Connecticut, the campus is steps away from major corporate headquarters such as Pitney Bowes, Purdue Pharma, RBS, GE, Thomson Reuters and UBS.  Performing arts centers such as the Palace Theatre, close to 100 restaurants, shopping, highlighted by the Stamford Town Mall with 100 fine shops and department stores, all are easily accessible by train, car and bus. Stamford’s motto is “The City That Works,” and we believe it works even better with the presence of UConn Stamford.

UConn Stamford is the top choice of students in Fairfield County and has attracted valedictorians and salutatorians to start their studies at the Stamford Campus. The campus offers four-year undergraduate programs in 13 academic majors that one can begin and finish at the Stamford Campus. An excellent   Honors Program engages students in seminar discussions.  Additionally, graduate degrees (MBA and MFRM, EDLR), a certificate program in Nursing (CEIN), and professional development programs through the Connecticut Information Technology Institute (CITI) are available, as well.  The campus offers traditional-aged students, returning adults, professionals in the workforce, transfer students and lifelong learners a foundation in the liberal arts and sciences that complements our professional preparation curriculum. Recently, with the passing of the NextGenCt legislation, the campus announced plans to offer a residential option to students for the first time ever. Along with housing are new majors in Digital Media and in Business.

The UConn Stamford Campus strives to sustain the quality and excellence of the academic programs that define UConn. We provide classrooms and laboratories with contemporary equipment and computers.  Our students are provided with scholarships based upon merit and financial need to pay for tuition, fees and books,  offered opportunities to engage in undergraduate and graduate research that benefits local communities; and given opportunities for student engagement through the Honors Program, Student Government Association and Service-Learning.   Recently, a new Learning Commons was completed with the Writing Center and the Source for Active Learning co-located in the Jeremy Richard Library. Here students can access support services in writing and math/science tutoring.

Students, faculty, staff and visitors who take the Metro North Train System as their primary mode of transportation will be picked up at the Stamford Train Station and provided free rides in the UConn Stamford shuttle bus on Monday through Thursday, starting at 7:00 a.m.  The shuttle bus runs continuously throughout the day to and from the Stamford Train Station, with the last run to the station departing at 10:30 p.m.

It is for all of these reasons that the UConn Stamford Campus attracts students from throughout Southwestern Connecticut and bordering New York locations, and international students from around the world.  I encourage you to explore the opportunities for personal and professional enhancements that UConn Stamford can offer. You’ll be surprised to see all that happens beyond our dramatic Rich Concourse.  We look forward to meeting you and serving you.
