The University of Connecticut expands beyond just the Storrs campus. With four regional campuses around the state, access to UConn is readily available throughout Connecticut. Small classes, access to talented faculty, and exclusive internships and majors provide unique opportunities while benefitting from of a quality education. The Regional Campuses – Avery Point, Hartford, Stamford, and Waterbury – provide Connecticut’s citizens with diversified educational programs: master’s degrees, four-year undergraduate degrees, two-year general education programs for Storrs-bound students, and, for returning adult students, a bachelor of general studies degree and non-credit courses. Each regional campus has a specific mission based on the strengths and needs of its community and region, but all have faculty with active research programs and all take pride in individualized student support services. Faculty, students, and courses meet the same criteria as those at Storrs, and are also linked to Storrs and to each other through the latest technology for distance learning.
