Welcome to UConn Stamford

As UConn’s largest undergraduate regional campus, in the most high profile and economically productive county in the state, UConn Stamford provides a top-ranked research university education, delivered in the intimate climate of an urban liberal arts college.

Graduate and undergraduate students study in various disciplines while taking advantage of the City of Stamford’s remarkable landscape of supportive community and business partners. Additionally, with New York City and all it has to offer less than one hour away, UConn Stamford seeks to educate not only in the classroom, but by creating bridges to experiential learning opportunities that will help our students prepare for future careers.

Students can start and finish 14 undergraduate majors on our campus, or begin any of the 110+ majors offered by the University and then later transfer to the main campus. Starting in Fall 2020, students will also be able to complete the major in Communications at the Stamford campus.

Further, the campus is home to graduate programs in the School of Business, and one certificate in the School of Nursing. Our goal is to put students in a position to succeed, by supporting them with all of the services offered by the University (tutoring, advising, counseling, career services, student activities, IT, and more), delivered in a personalized environment meant to address student needs and concerns quickly and efficiently.

Students may choose to live in one of our new apartment-style residence halls. Located just a few short blocks from the main campus building, each student apartment is fully furnished with bedroom, living room and kitchen furniture; the kitchen of each apartment has a stove, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator and a washer and dryer; heat, hot water, air conditioning, internet and cable TV access are all provided in cost. There are study spaces, a game room, and a larger recreation room available for student use; and parking is available for an additional cost.

UConn Stamford’s location, synergized relationships, and opportunities in Fairfield County benefit our students, faculty, and local community with engaging and thoughtful dialogue, content-rich events, and collaborations that lead to innovation, economic impact, and enhanced campus life. By deploying many of the university’s assets in Stamford, we create positive change and support the social, economic, and cultural development of the city and the state, while preparing our students to the utmost.
