Living on Campus

Make yourself at home.

Residential Life

Traditional residence halls, apartments, and suites provide a variety of options for students who live on campus. UConn offers cable TV, high-speed internet, volleyball courts, game rooms, study lounges – you might never want to leave. And you wouldn’t be the only one. In fact, the rate at which UConn students live on campus is among the highest in the nation. Our Learning Communities and Special Interest housing, including planned complexes for STEM majors and honors students, provide the opportunity to live with friends who share your interests, lifestyle, or commitment to a major.

Dining Services

Between our eight dining halls, five cafés, and the Student Union food court, a good meal on campus is practically around every corner. UConn’s award-winning Dining Services offers vegetarian and gluten-free options; and Kosher and Halal food stations are always available.

UConn is ranked No. 1 for gluten-free dining options by the National Association of College & University Food Services.

UConn’s Local Routes program provides local and seasonal food from sustainable food producers, and students from Spring Valley Student Farm grow organic produce on campus for Dining Services.
