About West Hartford, CT





  • University of Hartford

    Keep an eye out for the Hartford Hawks

    What is private, costs $30,000 to attend, and is situated between Boston and New York City? The University of Hartford! But don't let its price tag scare you away; about 78% of University of Harford undergraduates receive financial aid. With top majors in Business Management, Marketing, and Communications, you can be sure that University of Hartford students come out of school well-educated in money management. Just ask David Pritikin, producer of Survivor and University of Hartford alumn. The Hartford Hawks also have a number of tantalizing traditions, such as Midnight Breakfast, Spring Fling, and the Martin Luther King Jr. celebration. Being served breakfast for dinner during finals week? Live food and music in the spring? Inspiring speeches and events on the issue of social justice? That’s a wide selection to keep an Hawk soaring high!

    Finding Your Collegiate Crashpad

    There are a number of big apartment complexes in Hartford, if you're looking for something newer and boasting fancy amenities. (See if you can spot the listing that includes marble lions. Not that they're an amenity, per se. But we wouldn't complain about a few of those hanging around.) Consider splitting the rent with some buddies to cut costs. It's always good to browse around and see if a better deal can be found farther from campus, assuming you don't mind a commute.

    Reorienting Education

    "Education consists mainly in what we have unlearned." 
- Mark Twain

    And there are lots of places to unlearn/unwind around West Hartford. One popular study break among Hartford Hawks is shopping at the West Hartford Center. When you feeling more studious, drop by Mark Twain's old digs. Grab a beer and keep toppin' 'er up at the Pourhouse. Head over to Palace on Friday night for Hip Hop Fridays. Go on a Thursday for no cover. For scootin' around town, take the Connecticut Transit Bus, which stops right in front of University of Hartford. University of Hartford also offers a free shuttle that gets students around town.
