Campus Security Report

Campus Security Report

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.

Please visit The Princeton Review’s page on campus safety for additional resources: http://www.princetonreview.com/safety

The Princeton Review publishes links directly to each school's Campus Security Reports where available. Applicants can also access all school-specific campus safety information using the Campus Safety and Security Data Analysis Cutting Tool provided by the Office of Postsecondary Education of the U.S. Department of Education: http://ope.ed.gov/security

Transportation

Types of Transportation Available to Campus
Bradley International Airport, which is north of Hartford, CT is 20 miles from campus. Taxis and airport shuttles are available for the trip to campus. Amtrak trains and Greyhound buses serve Hartford. Taxis are available at the stations for the trip to campus.

Driving Instructions to Campus
From I-84 W., take Exit 44 and turn right onto Kane St. At the first light, turn left onto Prospect St. Proceed 2.5 miles to the end of the street, then turn right onto Albany Ave. Turn left at the first light onto Bloomfield Ave. and proceed half a mile to the university, which is on the right. From I-84 E., take Exit 44. Proceed on Caya Ave. for a very short distance to the light at Prospect Ave. Turn left onto Prospect and follow the preceding directions from that point.

Local Accommodations
The most convenient place to stay is probably the West Hartford Inn (900 Farmington Ave.; 860-236-3221), about 8 minutes from the campus. This is a typical, bare-bones motel, but comfortable enough. The price is moderate.
