The University of Connecticut, founded in 1881, delivers a remarkable range of educational opportunities, including more than 120 academic majors in 14 schools and colleges, all at an exceptional value. Our main campus is in Storrs, and four regional campuses are located throughout Connecticut. The intellectual and cultural resources of UConn, and our location close to the major hubs of New York City and Boston, make for a stimulating and inspiring environment for our students. UConn is one of the nation's leading public research universities, and serves as a center of academic and research excellence, innovation, and social service to communities. As a Research I institution, we offer our undergraduate and graduate students opportunities to pursue cutting-edge research. A $1.5 billion investment by our state aims to bolster UConn's commitment to STEM, and initiatives such as Bioscience Connecticut and The Jackson Laboratory provide a vision for the future of the University. UConn's diverse student body comprises more than 30,000 students who enjoy state-of-the-art facilities on picturesque campuses. Vibrant Living and learning opportunities inside and outside the classroom abound, from the Honors and Education Abroad programs to more than 620 student clubs and organizations, to avid campus-wide support for UConn's elite Division I athletics teams, known as "Huskymania." Because of all of this, UConn's freshman retention and graduation rates are among the highest of any public research university in the nation.
