UConn Tour Tips

  1. Bring your questions so either the Tour Guides or the Admissions Staff can answer them for you.
  2. Avoid High School vacation days as they are usually busy and fill up quick.
  3. Check for weather announcements at alert.uconn.edu in the event of inclement weather. If UConn delays or is closed, tours will be cancelled.
  4. Check out our UConn Stamford and UConn websites!
  5. Plan to make other visits to UConn Stamford besides the tour in order to get a feel for what it really means to be a husky.
  6. Bring a family member or two, this will allow more questions to be asked – your guests might think of questions that never crossed your mind but are important.
