Husky-for-a-Day

Care and concern for others is a hallmark of our UConn community. Because your health and the health of UConn Nation is of the utmost importance, all spring events and campus visits have been cancelled.

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; and
  • Enjoying a provided lunch in a campus dining unit

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/guardians 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/guardians. Parking is available in the North and South garages for a nominal fee.
