Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + 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.

In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.41 Average Rating
The University of Hartford has the most a student could ever need. From academic help to planning activities that would get everyone involved. There's so much to do in so little time.
Isaac from Bridgeport, CT
You get what you make of it. Research funding is limited, however when you are interested in running studies, if you impress the right people you can dominate your department.
Melissa from Smithtown, NY
I love the University of Hartford because it has a very diverse population of students. It has many different majors to choose from and lots of cool extracurricular activities to get involved in. I'd recommend attending this university because overall, the faculty and students really seem to respect one another and most people are friendly and welcoming.
Averi from Waterbury, CT
I feel the school is well rounded, has many majors to look into and a very supportive teaching staff.
Mason from Berlin, CT
There are many student clubs and organizations, and the student population is large enough that you're practically guaranteed to be able to find a group of people that you mesh well with.

The academic programs are highly varied and it's easy to take classes in any discipline with no major or minor required.

The school isn't cheap, but it has ample financial aid opportunities (full tuition baby!), so if you can afford it, it's absolutely worth attending.
