The University of Connecticut is such a happy, open environment. I've always felt so welcomed and comfortable with the students, professors and staff. Everyone here are always so open to being as helpful as they can be. The professors are excellent at what they do, their teaching methods are wonderful. As for safety, there are always multiple police officers around the campus all day and do their jobs very well so ensure everyone in the building feels secure. Overall the University of Connecticut is the school I have always dreamed of going to since I was in grade school.I couldn't ask to be at a better University.

As an alum, I really enjoyed my experience at UConn Waterbury. I was able to complete my 4-year BA in Psychology and Family Studies at this campus. The tuition is really affordable. I liked that the parking garage was connected to the building so you don’t have to travel too far to get to your classes. There was a decent sized lobby area, space in the library and outside space for for the size of the campus. For those who are seeking a larger campus with many more activities, this is not the place for you. This campus is pretty close to the highway which is nice and it is in an okay part of Waterbury.
So far I have enjoyed my time at UConn Waterbury for many reasons. The campus is small enough so that it is easy to navigate, the fact that it is a commuter school makes it easier for me to focus on academics, and I have made many new friends so far. It is definitely a great transition school before going to Storrs, and I like that I can complete my general education requirements for a fraction of the cost.
