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 May 2017, the operations of the School of Social Work will move to 38 Prospect Street, a campus anchored by the former Hartford Times Building in the Front Street district of downtown Hartford.

Our new campus will be part of a vibrant community. 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 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.


Watch for the latest on the renovations to the School of Social Work and shared space at the Hartford Public Library.
