Drug Safety: There's nothing too special about the drug and alcohol scene here, people do it but you don't have to partake in the event.

3 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: You can have an awesome college experience without drugs and/or alcohol. I never once felt peer pressured to drink or use. Each student can do their own thing and you aren't treated differently based on your choices.

4 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: It's probably like any other campus..not more or less.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: People always smoke weed by the benches behind B complex. People have overdosed on harder drugs in Konover. All in all, there are drugs on campus, you don't see it unless you go looking for it. No ones really pressured into doing anything but if you want to it's easy to find.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Depending on who you are and who you know on campus, you may have a very different opinion about drug use at the University of Hartford than another student. While alcohol is an obvious drug used here, other drug use is harder to find on campus. While there are some drug offenses reported, none of them are in the open. Alcohol and marijuana are the predominant drugs used on campus—alcohol can be seen and marijuana can be smelled.

Most drug use takes place on the weekends, when students are partying and looking to unwind. But, although drug use occurs on campus, it is not taken lightly. If students are caught, they are written up first by the resident assistant, and then they are sentenced to a student conduct hearing in which they receive just punishment. Severe drug offenses may result in loss of housing or, at the worst, expulsion from the University.
