The University of Hartford offers an environment where students will be both challenged and supported to tap into their full potential and become the successful leaders of our community.
The University of Hartford, a fully accredited, independent, nonsectarian institution, is composed of the College of Arts and Sciences; the College of Engineering, Technology and Architecture; the College of Education, Nursing, and Health Professions; Hillyer College; the Barney School of Business; the Hartford Art School; and The Hartt School.
Our full-time undergraduate enrollment of approximately 4,600 men and women includes students from nearly all 50 states and 44 countries. With an average class size of about 20—25 students, each student benefits from more personalized attention from faculty members. Students can expect to get to know not only their classroom professors well, but also all faculty members in their department. Faculty members focus on helping students apply what they learn in the classroom to real-world scenarios and provide the mentorship necessary to push students past perceived limits. Students participate in about 100 organized student groups, including clubs devoted to special interests or political, professional, religious, or civic activities. Athletics include intercollegiate (NCAA Division I) and intramural sports. These activities, as well as the recreational and fitness needs of the university, are served by a 130,000-square-foot Sports Center. Students are also involved in school publications and AM and FM radio stations, and the Hartt School, the Hartford Art School, and the University Players present a variety of concerts, exhibitions, and theatrical productions each year.
The university's Career Services Center provides career counseling and information on occupations, employers, testing, and graduate schools; serves as a reference and credential source; and provides graduating students with an on-campus recruiting program. Courses, programs, and educational counseling are provided by the Office of Graduate and Adult Academic Services for part-time adult students.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
