Academic Excellence

At UConn Avery Point, you’ll get all the benefits of a prestigious public research university in a small college setting. Established in 1967 on Long Island Sound at the mouth of the Thames River, UConn Avery Point inspires students with specialized programs that take advantage of our waterfront location and delivers an exceptional education in more traditional areas of study.
