United by Pride.

Being a Husky means living the traditions: Rubbing Jonathan’s nose for good luck. Indulging in the One-Ton Sundae. Sledding down Horsebarn Hill. It means coming together to celebrate who we are. And did we mention that Huskymania is a real and constant force around campus? Whether you’re an eager fan, a casual athlete, or a hardcore competitor, when you have 21 Division I varsity teams and 23 national championships, it comes with the territory

One Community, made of many cultures.

They also come for our inclusive campus community, full of diverse viewpoints, histories, and perspectives. Here, we practice compassion, understanding, and respect. We embrace and celebrate you for who you are. Together, we’re committed to supporting each other as Huskies.

Become a Husky.

Making the decision to apply to the University of Connecticut means you understand the importance of a UConn degree and where it can lead. Every year we strive to create an incoming class of the highest quality, a diverse student body comprised of intellectually curious, highly motivated, and academically accomplished individuals of strong moral character. Consideration is given to the entire application, including grade point average, class rank, SAT or ACT score (if provided; UConn is a test-optional institution), required essay, extracurricular activities, and optional letters of recommendation. This allows us to gain a full understanding and measurement of an applicant's potential to be a successful UConn Husky.
