3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall I enjoy my classes and interacting with my professors. The class sizes allow for individual attention which is great. I am a student-athlete so it is hard to always engage in the extracurriculars.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Having only participated in the schools initial orientation of students, I cannot give a reasonable opinion due to the lack of time spent on campus. However, I did enjoy myself during said orientation, and look forward to my college experience in the future.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The program that I am enrolled in is fantastic. It's a flexible and convenient schedule and the professors are very knowledgeable and helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy the school mainly because of its size. A big perk of going to a small school is that it can be very easy to get in touch with your professors. They are required to have a certain amount of office hours per week but many are often willing to meet up with you to help you if you are not available during those times.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The area outside of the campus can have some very ratty apartments. It depends what part of Hartford you decided to reside in .

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party scene for the most part is pretty fun. The campus itself doesn't have a ton of people residing on it so you can't expect massive parties.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining offers a wide variety. One of my favorite places to go is Peppercorns. It happens to be very expensive but reminds me of food that my family cooks when I'm home. Authentic Italian

4 College Freshman

Administration: Administration does its best to help all of its students. Professors are helpful especially during office hours

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Ever since Hartford has updated their meal plan, and partnered with a new food company, food quality has improved. Not only does the food taste great, but it is so healthy and all the calories and ingredients are broken down for you

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms are more spacious than most other campus dorms I have visited in the past. A great perk to almost all dorms at Hartford is having your own AC and heating unit. Most colleges up north do not offer air conditioning due to the short time you are at college during the warm season.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Pros Own space!

Cons Bills and distance from school

Administration: they do what then can

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: too many students per counselor

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a pretty big role in this school, they handle most of the parties and do participate in a lot of different activities and fundraisers. They usually keep to themselves and have a tight knit circle.

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.
