Visiting Campus

The welcome center at UConn Avery Point

As one of the nation’s leading public research universities, the University of Connecticut awaits your visit. While on the Avery Point campus:

  • Take a campus tour for an up-close look at our state-of-the-art academic, recreational, and waterfront facilities.
  • Check out our Student Center, the hub of student clubs and organizations — and home to our awesome cafe, Mort’s.
  • Attend one of our many fascinating seminars, performances, or cultural events.

Tours are available most Mondays through Fridays, by appointment. Combine a tour with a visit to Mystic, a short 15-minute drive from campus. Campus tours are offered year round. Are you unable to make a personal visit? Please visit
