UConn Stamford was founded in 1951 and moved downtown in 1998, putting our students at the center of a robust business community and energizing city. Learning opportunities both in and out of the classroom dare you to achieve more than you ever imagined.
UConn Stamford is located in the center of one of the nation’s most robust business communities. In fact, few U.S. cities contain such a concentration of business headquarters. UConn Stamford students gain tremendous access to internships, field placements, and employment with Fortune 500 companies, investment and banking institutions, and community-based organizations. UConn Stamford is also an accredited Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI), and is the only university in New England with this designation.
The University is internationally recognized for research in wide-ranging areas, and in the spirit of our heritage as a land and sea grant institution, we remain committed to understanding and solving the most significant societal problems. We approach our mission with a commitment to excellence, ethical action, and inclusiveness for which the four interdependent core values define our mission: innovation, leadership, global engagement, and diversity.
