Senator John Fonfara (D-Hartford) today joined hundreds of elected officials, university leaders, students, and members of the community to mark the grand opening of the University of Connecticut’s new Hartford Campus.

Returning to downtown Hartford, UConn Hartford interweaves top-tier academic programs with the vitality and unique educational and service opportunities offered by Connecticut’s capital city. The move establishes a neighborhood campus, with UConn Hartford being integrated with the Hartford Public Library and surrounded by the Wadsworth Atheneum, Connecticut Science Center, Connecticut Convention Center, and state and city government offices.

Home to many undergraduate programs as well as graduate and professional programs, UConn Hartford offers all of the benefits of a prestigious public research university in a metropolitan setting.
