3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Most people here smoke weed. You can smell it all the time. Public safety is pretty relaxed about it so getting caught isn't really an issue.

College Senior

Drug Safety: This is a college campus so you will find parties but our university does follow CT laws and there will be consequences.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There's a big party scene, but there are also plenty of options and social events for people who don't drink. It's split like 60-40 so it's never really bad for anyone (unless you live in the village and don't like to party)

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: The school makes sure the students are educated on drugs and alcohol before even attending school. I am not on campus on the weekends, but so far the school doesn't seem to have issues with excessive drug use or underage drinking.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: Public Safety and the RAs are very good about enforcing the campus policies on drinking and drugs. No drugs are tolerated ever. Drinking is only allowed inside one's apartment and only if that person is 21 or over.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

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.
