At the University of Hartford, you’ll be able to immerse yourself in the cultural heart and historical soul of America. Located in West Hartford, Connecticut—a welcoming, safe and affluent suburban community in central New England—the school is ideally located a mere two-hour-drive from both New York City and Boston, Massachusetts. That means you’ll have easy access to America’s largest city, with its world-renowned cultural scene, as well as America’s most iconic city with its rich historical roots.  The school is also located just 5.6km from downtown Hartford—Connecticut’s capital city with much to offer on its own.


I heard about the excellent English program and wanted to try it. I like it all. Its structure and teacher skills help the students to improve every day...the teachers have been a big support during the semester and I'm happy for all the help.
