  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation.

What Students Are Saying

Everyone here is very accommodating. Resources are easy to come by. The available courses are diverse and interesting.
TF from Norwich, CT
Coming to Uconn has been the best decision I have ever made, and can't imagine myself anywhere else, including the other schools where I initially applied. From the food, to the busy campus, to all the friends I have made, my short time at the University of Connecticut has already been the best time of my life. Uconn is truly a great place to be, with people that care about you and your journey through college.
Matthew from Waterbury, CT
Great school. Good education for a good price. Lots of school spirit, and a generally good atmosphere.
