4 College Junior

Athletics: The facilities are open and free to anyone who has a student ID. They have a bunch of work out equipment, tennis courts, soccer fields, baseball fields, indoor and out door pools, a volleyball court, and it's all well maintained.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't personally partake in athletics but we have some great school spirit here. It's definitely fun to watch our team play and the events that run around our team, like Midnight Mania.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The gymhas nice and update equiment perfect for those who workout or just wanna kill time. There is also a court and pool which is another option for those wishing to have fun or workout. The hours are great too since you can go early in the morning or late at night.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletic events are great. The best part is that they are free for all of the students. There are always kids out at the games and there are student sections at all the venues, which is great because it is just students with students. As far as athletics go, there are fields that all the students can use regardless of if your an athlete or not, I usually go play pickup football or baseball and the intramural gym for shooting hoops. The intramural program here is huge too, Hartford offers pretty much any sport you would ever want and intramural is a pretty lax way of participating, it is just for fun

College Freshman

Athletics: i hate this school and tried to be there as little as possible

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The University of Hartford is home to the Hawks and the school’s beloved mascot, Howie the Hawk, who is at the center of all sporting events. The Hawks are Division I and play in the America East Conference. There are many varsity sports offered at the University, including baseball, men's and women's basketball, cross country, men's and women's golf, lacrosse, men's and women's soccer, softball, men's and women's tennis, track and field, and volleyball. But, while there are many teams to join or watch, there is no football team, something that many students say is needed here.

There is, however, a rugby team and many intramural teams. Intramural basketball is a very popular sport on campus, and students pack the intramural gym on game days. As a whole, athletics are very important to the University, and the games are usually broadcast on TV or radio. Many of the teams have their successes and failures, but the women's basketball team is the most successful—the team makes it to the NCAA or WNIT tournament nearly every season. Overall, sports are a major part of the University, and they provide a lot of fun and entertainment for the students who are not on teams.
