Welcome to the University of Hartford

The University's Orientation program is your introduction to our campus community. During Orientation, you will learn how to make the University of Hartford feel like your home away from home, how to take advantage of opportunities for a successful beginning of your college career, and begin friendships with fellow incoming students. You will also receive your class schedule for your first semester, and meet some of our faculty and staff. Our orientation staff can't wait to see you! 

We offer one Orientation session for students entering in spring, and five sessions for students entering in the fall. January Orientation is designed for students entering in the spring semester. Sessions 1 through 4 are designed for traditional first-year students. Session 5 is reserved for those who have date conflicts with sessions 1 through 4 and is abbreviated due to move-in weekend. Transfer Orientation is designed specifically for transfer students.

If you have any questions related to orientation or your transition to the University of Hartford, please call us at 860-768-7003 or email
