4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have heard great things about Off-Campus Housing and actually plan to live there in the next few years.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't really like UCONN's party scene. I have more fun when I go out to things like Late Night with my friends because there is food, games, and amazing free movies! Which is much better than sitting around in a dorm with the uncomfortable possibility of illegal activity

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The prices can be rather convenient depending on where you order, however, I wish there were more options in terms of food.

3 College Freshman

Administration: There are a lot of times when people will be blasting music or screaming during quiet hours and the RAs will not enforce the rules unless they feel it is bothering them directly, however, that is not what I feel should be happening. If someone is breaking the rules during quiet hours there should be some form of enforcement because just because you don't hear it does not meant that the other residents can't.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The only thing that can be time consuming about the financial aid section is the rate at which material is processed. During on circumstance I submitted paper work in early july to be processed for the fall. When August came around it was not processed so I waited until September to call. upon calling I learned that the paperwork was received by had not been sent out. At first I thought it was the result of something I did , such as forgetting to hand in an item, however, when I asked I learnt that they did in fact have all the paperwork that they needed, but nothing was sent out.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I do enjoy the dinning hall menus, however, I wish there were more late night dinning options.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I really enjoy living on campus, however, I wish the bathroom sections were kept cleaner by the people who live there. Additionally, there are times in which people are throwing their trash around the hallways instead of finding the proper bins to place their things in.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It all depends on how early you start searching

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Parties are great, UCONN police needs to calm down

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: If you dont have a car some of its hard to get

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Other than the UCONN police Admiinistration rocks

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Honestly I have no idea how the process goes

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Other than Whitney all the food on campus is great

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: You either get really lucky or really unlucky

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living on campus because I am a few steps away to everything from a minimum of 2 nearby dining halls, the Student Union, any on campus activities, the library, and more. When its winter, the buses are good to rely on. It's really convenient the fact that there's a laundry room on every building (except on North Campus) and that they are already included on the residential fees. I think that the cost is good compared to off-campus housing. The housing process is hectic only because of the date you get to pick (since there's an order by credits). I like the fact that you can see exactly which rooms are open throughout the selection process which is good to create more concrete backup plans.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I barely know anything about off-campus housing, so I wouldn't know how to rate it. I know that the University provides fairs so people can get to know the different options available and I also know where some are located. I know that the Oaks is a really convenient place to live, but expensive.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not much of a partier but going to frat parties is a good experience especially if you are comfortable with most of the people there. Dorm parties are great because you are at the convenience of everything and you definitely know everyone. Also, its a great way to form deep bonds.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Most of the time, I look forward to the weekend so I have an excuse to order Wings Over Storrs; their food is just delicious and I can get delivery for just $10 total. Wally's is good if you want to switch things up a little bit. the Hungry Huskies website is excellent to view all of the different locations with the menus and prices. You can even order straight through that website with some places!

4 College Freshman

Administration: I can't think of a specific school policy that is affecting student's lives on campus. I can think of the fact that we have a spirit rock that can be painted by whomever to send out messages on campus and this has been creating some problems regarding racism an supporting black lives. The University has taken action regarding this and I think they handled it well the second time an issue rose, but they were a little lenient with the first issue.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got a scholarship right when I was accepted so that wasn't bad. You are automatically evaluated for grants every year after you submit your FAFSA and get notified at the end of the year. I recommend to be alert of the FAFSA deadline (you can submit estimates and update with real values after the deadline has passed, just make sure that you submit something before the deadline), look for scholarship options within your college (keep up your grades), applying for on campus jobs, apply to be an RA (great benefits as you don't pay for housing and get paid $4,000), and make sure you were considered for grants.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Points and unlimited access to the dining halls are the greatest things of the dining plans. They are so convenient and make sure that you get the most out of food that you can get on campus. Flex passes may be used for guests or for Grab & Go's (which serve only wraps or sandwiches). I think that grab & Go's should expand what they serve cause it can get repetitive. There's a wide variety of the dining halls' menus, I love the food they serve. I don't like the fact that for in between meals they serve the same food (which can get gross and nauseating after a while) or that dining halls close way too early, especially on the weekends! Dining halls should close at 9 or 10 pm and late night should be until midnight every day.

5 College Student

Athletics: Athletics are great and allow many to try various activities.

3 College Student

Greek Life: I'm not really sure what Greek life is but there is great diversity and acceptance of all cultures and identities.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: I know some people who live off-campus and they are very happy. It is close for them to come to the university.

College Student

Party Scene: I dont really go to parties but I hang out with friends at dinner or wherever we like to, such as the mall.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

UConn is a great place to spend your college years. There will be aspects of different universities that people like and dislike, so you won't have the perfect college experience at UConn—or anywhere, for that matter; however, you won't hate your time at UConn. There’s something for everyone here, with so many clubs and organizations on campus. If you pursue what interests you, you will have a great college experience. These clubs exist for a reason: to bring people together with common interests. If you don’t pursue them, you’re missing out on a chance to meet new people and have new experiences. Some students get overwhelmed with the large class sizes, limited parking, and the walks to class in unreliable New England weather. However, it's important to remember that college life is an adjustment.

The entire student body unifies over basketball. Whether you’re a fan of the sport or not, Husky pride is everywhere. Campus is like its own city since there’s really nothing else around Storrs, Conn. While its size may be intimidating, you learn quickly where everything is and which buildings your classes are in. Campus transportation makes it easy to navigate from one side to the other, as well. UConn’s academics are not to be ignored, with a stand-up reputation among New England public universities. A degree from UConn is sure to help you get the future you want.
