Connect with UConn Law

At UConn Law, the health and safety of our community is our top priority. We have made the difficult decision to suspend guided campus tours and all in-person prospective student meetings and events. We look forward to welcoming prospective students to our beautiful campus when it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we encourage you to engage with our Admissions Office virtually. Please see below for opportunities to meet with us.

A Closer Look at Our Campus

The beautiful UConn Law campus is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.  We are located in the West End of Hartford, midway between New York and Boston and 28 miles from the university’s main campus in Storrs. The campus spans 17 acres and is comprised of five Gothic-style buildings. Take a closer look by browsing the videos below:

 

Outdoor-only, self-guided walking tours of the campus are permitted and do not require registration or advance notice.
