UConn Stamford is growing due to strong student interest in our well-established academic programs as well as interest in our new and emerging undergraduate and graduate programs, particularly in Digital Media and Business. The campus also benefits from its downtown location in the vibrant City of Stamford and its proximity to New York City.

Your University student ID card gives you access to your residential area. Please make sure to have your ID card with you at check-in. If you have not received your ID card, please have another photo ID available to provide identification for check-in. If you still need to obtain an ID card, please submit a photo for your student ID at http://onecard.uconn.edu/the-one-card/online-photo-submission/. ID’s will be created at Storrs and mailed down to the Registrar/Bursar’s office (room 219) in Stamford for pick up.
We have a limited amount of bins to assist you with your move-in. Students looking to utilize our bins will need to provide a photo ID and should contact the RA on Duty (203-833-2507) for assistance. Students will be limited to checking out one bin at a time. These bins must stay on university property and are not allowed to be taken elsewhere.
One of the major deterrents for students who would like to live in Stamford is the high cost of housing. The cost of a one bedroom Stamford apartment averages $1,900 per month and the average cost of a two-bedroom apartment is $2,700 per month, expenses that are beyond the range of affordability for most students.
With this new development, housing costs for many students will be reduced and much more affordable. Residential housing will also eliminate commuting time and expenses, enhance the college experience and increase student independence. Students will enjoy the cultural experiences, entertainment, and employment and internship opportunities in Stamford, while increasing time for academic work.
University housing is located at 900 Washington Boulevard, 2 blocks south of the UConn Stamford campus and half way between the main campus building and the Stamford Transportation Center.
The building is six stories tall and has 116 apartment units. The maximum occupancy of the building is approximately 350 students, but because some of the bedrooms are single occupancy, the target occupancy is 290 students. The University is managing Stamford housing as we do in Storrs, with an on-site Resident Director and on-floor Resident Assistants. 100 designated parking spaces for students are available for a small additional charge.
