We’re Moving to Downtown Hartford
UConn School of Social Work is excited to move to our dynamic new campus in downtown Hartford, where we will interweave our academic programs with educational and service opportunities available in Hartford.
Being so close to the city, provides you with exceptional opportunities for internships and other learning experiences. UConn School of Social Work graduate students benefit from the best of a variety of learning experiences.
In August 2017, the operations of the West Hartford campus will move to a site anchored by the former Hartford Times Building in the Front Street district. The School of Social Work will be located at 38 Prospect Street.
This will create a neighborhood campus fully intertwined with the nearby cultural institutions and state and city government offices, including Hartford Public Library, the Wadsworth Atheneum, the Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts, CT Science Center, and top regional theaters like the Hartford Stage and TheaterWorks.
UConn is also bringing a new Barnes & Noble bookstore downtown. UConn Hartford will feature dedicated parking available for students in the Connecticut Convention Center garage. The campus will also be accessible via CTtransit/CTfastrak.
Our new campus will be part of a vibrant community, and safety is our top priority. Together, the UConn and City of Hartford police departments will work to keep our students, faculty, and staff safe throughout our downtown campus district.
