The growing trend at the University of Hartford is that students live on campus their freshman year and move off campus as an upperclassman. The most popular place for students living off campus is Temple Street Apartments. Although many make the common mistake of thinking these apartments are affiliated with the University, they are not. Many University of Hartford students live there because the apartments are affordable and close to campus. Rent there or just about anywhere in the area averages about $900 to $1,200 a month. The apartments are conveniently located in Downtown Hartford and are about 15 minutes from campus.
Many students also live in the popular Clemens Place, which is also in Hartford and about the same distance from campus as Temple Street. Many students say that living off campus is less expensive than living on campus, and many have roommates in order to split costs. Students say they like living off campus because there’s a freedom and personal space that they just cannot feel on campus.
