UConn Health’s location provides students with the opportunity to live in a number of diverse settings.
Choose Your Environment
Convenience: Located right across the street from UConn Health are a number of condominiums and apartments that are mainly occupied by medical, dental, and graduate students. Not only is the location convenient, but due to the clustering of medical students, it is easy to form study groups. Further, this set up promotes a social environment, which helps to balance the rigors of studying.
Suburban: For those students who want to live in a suburban setting, there are a number of houses, apartments, and condominiums in the surrounding towns of Farmington, New Britain, and West Hartford. All of these locations are a short drive to both UConn Health as well as the hospitals that third and fourth year students rotate through.
Urban: If an urban setting is more for you, the city of Hartford provides this opportunity. Further, two of the major clinical rotation sites, Saint Francis Hospital and Hartford Hospital, are located in Hartford, making this a great place to live during the clinical years.
