General Information

The University of Connecticut (UConn), located in Storrs, Connecticut, is a public research university established in 1881. It was founded as the Storrs Agricultural School, named after two brothers who donated the land and initial funding for the school. In 1893, the first women were admitted, and it officially became Connecticut’s land-grant college, along with a name change to Storrs Agricultural College. It became Connecticut Agricultural College in 1899, Connecticut State College in 1933, and finally gained its present name in 1939. Today, UConn enrolls more than 30,000 students and counting each year. Its colors are navy blue, white, and gray, and its athletic nickname is the huskies.

UConn operates four satellite universities in Avery Point, Stamford, Hartford, and Waterbury, as well as Bioscience Connecticut and Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine. 

On Campus

UConn is a National Sea Grant and a National Space Grant university. Noteworthy school facilities include the National Undersea Research Center, the Institute for Materials Science, the State Museum of National History, and the William Benton Museum of Art.

Longstanding campus traditions include “The Rock,” a rock coated with thousands of layers of paint promoting various student events throughout the years; OOzeball, an annual mud volleyball tournament; the Lip Sync, a yearly Homecoming event, and the annual Spring Concert, which has drawn as many as 10,000 attendees.
