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 academic advising, meet some of our faculty and staff, and finalize registration for your first semester classes. We hope you are getting a little excited at this point because our orientation staff can't wait to see you! 

We offer five sessions for students entering in the fall. 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 and their unique needs and is held on Thursday, August 30.

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
