Campus Housing: It's very spacious and nice to walk around when you want to get some fresh air

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The Architecture program here at the University of Hartford is very challenging. I appreciate the smaller class sizes and also the flexibility of the teachers. I commute and if I miss a morning class because of traffic, they will let me sit in another section that they teach in order for me to catch anything that I missed.

I never experience anything like that before: Teachers who are willing to help students who want to learn.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Same stores and restaurants I know. Nothing unique and exciting.

College Junior

Athletics: The teachers are very lenient for students who participate in school sports. Sports are a pretty big deal here in school.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I received a great financial aid package even though I registered late for the spring semester.

Campus Quality: The student union building needs some updating and the billiards table needs replacing.

4 College Junior

Local Area: My school is located in West Hartford, CT. That is a suburb of Hartford, CT. There are lots of attractions in Hartford including the XL Center, Bushnell Park, The Civic Center and so on.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I commute from my home and I do not plan to live on or off campus during the school year.

3 College Junior

Administration: Pretty standard academic code and conduct. You will face discipline if you are caught cheating.

College Junior

Party Scene: I commute to school and I leave right after class to return home. I don't have time for parties.

5 College Senior

Local Area: I love wandering around Hartford and West Hartford. You just have to be careful about where in Hartford you are. Downtown is gorgeous, but you have to go through the rough part of town to get there.

College Senior

Guys & Girls: A school like UHart has a lot of different types of people, and it's almost impossible to describe an "average student". The students in the business school are different from the art school and the music school, you know?

Academics: For the most part, professors do try to engage students and get them excited about what they're doing. I've really enjoyed all of my classes - even the required ones.

Administration: Legit, both PS and ResLife really don't want to bust you. They're easy to deal with if you respect them, honestly I've never had a problem with anyone in either department.

Off-Campus Dining: There's a noticeable variety off-campus, but first you have to get to them.

Greek Life: I personally have not had very good experiences with Greeks on this campus. There are some that are fantastic, and others that are downright horrible. I've also heard that hazing is a huge thing here, but of course no one would admit to it.

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.
