UConn Opens New Downtown Hartford Campus

UConn Today – UConn has come home to Hartford.

After years of planning, the new downtown UConn Hartford campus opened Wednesday to the cheers of scores of onlookers who gathered at 10 Prospect St., where the campus is anchored at the historic Hartford Times building.

The move returns UConn to its roots in Hartford, where it had been located from its opening in 1939 until it moved in 1970 to West Hartford. It also helps UConn fulfill core aspects of its academic and service missions, while establishing a classic urban campus that complements the capital city and will become part of its fabric.
