Undergraduate Admissions


UConn's distinctive Husky-for-a-Day Program on the Storrs campus offers prospective 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 a student reception sponsored by UConn's Learning Communities. Parking is available in the North and South garages for a nominal fee.
