Husky-for-a-Day

UConn's distinctive Husky-for-a-Day Program on the Storrs campus offers admitted students an up-close look at UConn life. Participants will be matched with a current UConn student and explore campus as it was meant to be seen — from the student perspective!

A Husky-for-a-Day visit consists of:

  • Attending a UConn class with your student host;
  • Visiting a residence hall;
  • Exploring campus;
  • Enjoying a provided lunch in a campus dining unit; and
  • Interacting with current UConn students, faculty, and admissions staff.

The program begins with an "all-things-UConn" presentation from our student Husky Ambassadors. Parents/guardians are invited to attend the morning informational session. While students are with their UConn hosts, parents are welcome to join a pre-arranged campus tour or explore campus on their own. An optional afternoon presentation from Financial Aid will also be available to attending parents. The program concludes with an optional Learning Communities information session. Parking is available in the North and South garages for a nominal fee.
