Undergraduate Admissions



Excessive Enthusiasm is an Understatement.

The University of Connecticut is home to a variety of Division I varsity sports. As a UConn student you'll cheer on our 21 NCAA Division I athletic programs, including basketball, football, soccer, ice hockey, baseball, field hockey, track and cross country, swimming and tennis. We're known for winning championships, and the excitement carries over into ubiquitous school spirit.

Our student-athletes are winners, and so are our fans.

"We don't have to apologize for wanting to be great."
