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
  • Interacting with current UConn students, faculty, and staff

The program begins with an "all-things-UConn" presentation from our student Husky Ambassadors. Accompanying family members are invited to attend the morning informational session. While students are with their UConn hosts, family members are welcome to join a pre-arranged campus tour or explore campus on their own. Parking is available in the North and South garages for a nominal fee.

Husky-for-a-Day visits for admitted students will be offered Mondays–Thursdays from March 18 – April 18. Students admitted to the Honors Program are encouraged to attend one of five Honors-specific dates, which conclude with a reception hosted by the Honors Program.

For more information, including event registration, visit the applicant portal.
