1 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are among the worst in the country. Facilties are generally medium poor.

1 College Junior

Greek Life: Its typical bro type scene. Nothing special, just ok.

1 College Junior

Athletics: Zero school spirit. This is a commuter type school. No one follows the sports teams or cares.

1 College Junior

Overall Experience: Would not choose again. Safety school for low achieving students. Dorms are horrible! Food is bad. Place is dead on the weekend. A lot of people drop out or tranfer, it seems like most don;t graduate. Most don't want to be here. Classes are mostly a joke. Overall would not recomend!

3 College Senior

Party Scene: Only on the weekends because of the quiet hours that school enforces.

5 College Senior

1 College Senior

Campus Housing: Housing on the University of Hartford campus is horrible. Very old and run down For how expensive it is!

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Low key and small groups but great if you join.

5 College Senior

Athletics: University of Hartford puts a lot of money into the sports complex and it shows. It's a very nice complex with multiple gyms and two pools. The sports center caters to both athletes and nonathletes. Overall it is Awesome for the small school.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: The acedemic side of campus is beautiful and the professors are mostly pretty helpful. The class selection is good and the advisors are decent. (Depends on who you get) If I were a commuter student I would give the University a much better score. However I am subjected to living on campus. The residential halls are a joke. They are very run down and old. When you visit the campus, they will show you an example dorm room, but don't fall for the trap, the dorm rooms they actually put students in don't look anything like that. The furniture is old I don't even want to think how long the mattresses have been the same. The upperclassman housing isn't anything spectacular either. It's also very run down and in need of large renovations. Dealing with residential life is a nightmare and the housing selection process is very outdated. The food on campus is by far one of the worst parts. Meal plans are expensive and the food quality is terrible. The dining halls on campus of undergone very expensive renovations, but they still have yet to increase the food quality to a point where it actually tastes good. The best times to get food on campus are during orientation and parents weekend when the school shows off to the parents, then the food goes back to being terrible. Overall University of Hartford is a good school for academics and to get a degree, but living on campus, room and board, has much to be desired.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: there have been mostly great professors however i have had experience with a few who had no business being an educator.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: we've recently had a few safety problems however the campus security is never hard to find.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: you should bring a lot of things with you when you move in.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There aren't any Greek housing opportunities on campus or available for the school but they all usually get an on-campus apartment together and unnoficially use that as their Greek housing.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: not much of the school attends the sporting events however, given the opportunity to speak with an athlete, most students take an interest in the current standing of each team.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've gotten involved in Greek life as well as club rugby and have had numerous discussions with professors about my concerns and questions regarding classes as well as my education in general.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school is great for discovering what you want to study, while allowing you to have fun.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Alumni really care about students who went to this school. It's easy to get a job with the alumni connection.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Things can happen anywhere, and on a college campus they're bound to happen due to students being stupid. I have never felt unsafe while walking across campus at night.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is an experience, for sure. It's something I think everyone should experience, but it's not for everyone. I like being on campus because I am close to classes and to my peers.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: It's easy to get involved in Greek life if you want to, but it's not the top choice for a lot of students. You don't have to be in Greek life in order to have friends or have fun.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Not a lot of students attend sports games, unfortunately. There are free shirts, however, that are often given out at sports games which is nice to look forward to.

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.
