Hawktober Weekend

2018 Dates for Hawktober weekend Will be announced soon!

Hawktober Weekend is the University of Hartford's annual homecoming and parents weekend. Join the many alumni who return to campus for the largest reunion of the year, reunite with classmates, and relive fond memories. Maybe Hawktober wasn't a tradition when you were at UHart, but it sure is now. Check out the links below to learn more about Hawktober Weekend 2017, which took place Oct. 20-22. 


While Hawktober is open to ALL alumni, each year we celebrate classes and affinities that have reached special milestones.


This year, 2's and 7's classes were celebrated at Reunion Row! These classes reunited over food, drinks, and yard games: 2017, 2012, 2007, 2002, 1997, 1992, and 1987.


Affinity is a shared experience, identity or background, organization or academic affiliation, profession, or other related interest. At Hawktober 2017, we celebrated the following affinities:

  • Greek Life
  • Jewish Student Life
  • SGA (Student Government Association)
  • Red Caps
  • Red Keys
  • RFAs (Resident Facilities Assistant)
  • RAs (Resident Assistant)


Hawktober Weekend is an excellent time for families to join their child on campus and learn more about their college experience. Hear an update from President Gregory Woodward, check-in with Career Services, and find out more about study-abroad oportunities for your student. 


Students can celebrate an important UHart tradition and share their life at UHart with their family. Hawktober Week, leading up to the weekend, is a time students can show their school spirit and participate in some of the University's most beloved traditions like Bakin' Like A Boss, the Nearly Naked Mile, the Bonfire, and First Flight.
