3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I hated the housing. Way too small and the bathrooms were very dirty.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Academic wise everything is great.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Only been to a few games so I can't really be the judge.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have found professors and classes very engaging and useful. I feel like I have learned a lot thus far, and cannot wait for what's to come.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am a Barney student, and I am very confident that I will get an internship and a desirable job from my degree.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not personally involved in Greek life, but many pf my friends are. They all love the community it provides, and I do not know anyone who feels excluded by Greeks. They host many charitable events on campus and are an asset to the school.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There is not a huge amount of school spirit on campus from what I have seen. I hope that as the athletic program grows, this attitude shifts.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am so happy that I made the choice to go to University of Hartford. I love the diverse community that I am emerged in from the seven different colleges to the student body. It has allowed me to expand my horizons and explore so many areas that I never thought I would.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There have been three robberies, two of which involved guns, in my dorm complex in the past two months but PS and the Hartford Police upped security until the perpetrators were found, and since it was targeting specific individuals for drug related animosity, I didn't feel particularly unsafe being around campus while that was going on, as I didn't know any of the people involved.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As an art student it's going to be hard to find jobs outside of graphic design, but in later years the professors do help.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've had some pretty great professors and some not-so-great ones, it ll depends on the classes you take. The art school professors are generally very helpful and easier to approach.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Average college dorms that are a bit overpriced. The Village Apartments are one of the best on-campus places to live because they have full kitchens and it's a good social atmosphere.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: No specific housing for Greek Life.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: If you don't do sports, most people generally aren't very invested in the teams.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: met some amazing people here and have definitely learned a lot in the art school. If you're looking to major in visual art, it's a very good school to come to.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus overall is pretty safe. There have been instances where crime has taken place, however, public safety as well as the school take this very seriously. They constantly send updates when something is happening and other safety measures include Locked doors that you need a specific key to access your floor as well as your room as well as swiping into your building with your ID but doesn't let you swipe and other peoples buildings.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class sizes are relatively small. Many of the professors are very passionate about the subject though occasionally he will find one that is not. The styles aren't bad it depends on the type of classes you can take. There is room to take gen eds as well as classes for your major and electives.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Most of the places are nice. Park river is probably the best. Singles are great. Process is a bit of a nightmare.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Very cliquey and most are annoying.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't know much about the sports life but the gym is nice, clean and well maintained.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is what you make of it. If you go out and join clubs and do things you will have a better time.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I think they should have the clinic open on weekends.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Research who you're taking and you'll be able to have the best of the best.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Pray you get clean neighbors.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: No hazing like at all which is great.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Different students will have different opinions about their experience at the University of Hartford. Some will say they hate, and some will say they love it, but the overall experience is really what you make it. In general, it seems like students who are involved on campus are more likely to have a better overall experience than those who are not. Participating in activities and keeping busy on campus means you will meet more people and share enjoyable times with them. You will likely have the strongest bonds with people you meet in clubs and organizations, but students in the same major are bound to have almost every class together, and friendship will form from that, as well. Suitemates and roommates also become great friends while at the University.

At times, living on campus can become boring and mundane because of the repetitiveness of everything from classes to meals, but with the right group of friends and a good spirit, boring can equal exciting! In fact, after they graduate, many Hartford students stay for the master’s programs offered here, which can only lead to the assumption that students have a generally good experience or else they would not want to stay here any longer. Due to the University’s location, there is not often much to do, especially if you don’t have a car and are "stuck" on campus, but groups of friends usually get together and make the most of their experience. Whether it is hanging out in their dorm rooms playing video games or playing basketball in the gym, they make the best of their time here.
