The School of Social Work is one of four graduate professional schools located in the Greater Hartford area. This proximity to the capital, one of the state’s areas of greatest need, enables these professional programs to help carry out the University’s public service mission, particularly to oppressed populations.
Being so close to the city, provides you exceptional opportunities for internships and other learning experiences. You will also benefit from the outstanding array of cultural, recreational, and educational opportunities available in Hartford and throughout the region. Hartford is home to such outstanding facilities as The Wadsworth Atheneum, the Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts, CT Science Center, and top regional theaters like the Hartford Stage and TheaterWorks.
UConn School of Social Work graduate students benefit from the best of a variety of learning experiences.
We’re Moving to Downtown Hartford
UConn School of Social Work is excited to move to its dynamic new campus in downtown Hartford, where we will interweave our academic programs with educational and service opportunities available in Hartford.
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.
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.
