On Campus living

Living in a campus residence hall can feel just like home … maybe even better. You’ll meet wonderful people, make lots of friends and engage in fun activities—all while getting a world-class education. 

And you can rest assured that our supportive environment and welcoming staff will make you feel comfortable from the moment you arrive.

Studies have shown that students who live in campus residence halls have greater academic success and are more likely to graduate than off-campus students. Since student success represents the core of the University of Hartford mission, undergraduate students are required to live on campus and participate in the meal plan for the duration of their IPP experience. 

Living on campus also means that all campus facilities and services are within easy walking distance.

Residence Hall Living

All IPP students will be housed in the same building among American and other international students. You’ll be paired with a roommate in a double room in the E and F Complex. These residence halls accommodate eight to ten students in each suite. The rooms have cable TV and high-speed internet connections. In addition, each complex has laundry facilities, study lounges and air-conditioning.

Dining Plan

Undergraduate IPP students will be enrolled in the Freshman-Exclusive 7-Day All-Access Meal Plan, which includes unlimited meals at the Commons and $100 Dining Dollars each semester. Graduate students may choose to participate in other dining
plans; please see UHart's dining page for details.
