Depending on who you are and who you know on campus, you may have a very different opinion about drug use at the University of Hartford than another student. While alcohol is an obvious drug used here, other drug use is harder to find on campus. While there are some drug offenses reported, none of them are in the open. Alcohol and marijuana are the predominant drugs used on campus—alcohol can be seen and marijuana can be smelled.
Most drug use takes place on the weekends, when students are partying and looking to unwind. But, although drug use occurs on campus, it is not taken lightly. If students are caught, they are written up first by the resident assistant, and then they are sentenced to a student conduct hearing in which they receive just punishment. Severe drug offenses may result in loss of housing or, at the worst, expulsion from the University.
