Welcome to the UHart Family!
As soon as your student chooses the University of Hartford, all parents and/or guardians instantly become a part of the Parent Network, playing a significant role in the student experience and at the University overall. We encourage you to engage with us and support students in meaningful ways—from attending events as a parent volunteer and connecting with prospective families to providing professional development and scholarship opportunities. You can create a unique way of being involved, ultimately enjoying a UHart experience of your very own!
Check out the many ways you can stay connected below and join us in making your mark. Interested in getting involved? We want to hear from you.

Student Life & Support
At most universities, student life and academic services are distinct units with different goals and priorities. At the University of Hartford, Student Affairs and Academic Affairs exist together under one label: the Division of Student Success. We know that every student is different and we work collaboratively to celebrate and support each and every one.
