Avery Point


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.

The University is internationally recognized for research in wide-ranging areas, and in the spirit of our heritage as a land and sea grant institution, we remain committed to understanding and solving the most significant societal problems. We approach our mission with a commitment to excellence, ethical action, and inclusiveness for which the four interdependent core values define our mission: innovation, leadership, global engagement, and diversity.
