Information for Parents

Profound support. It's what brings us together and sets us apart.

Student Emergency Support Fund

To help students who have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, UHart created the Student Emergency Support Fund. If your student is in need of help, encourage them to complete this form. We are here for you and your students and want to know how we can help.

At the University of Hartford we know a student's success in college takes a village. Over the next four years, your student's village will include faculty, fellow students and you–their family! 

Here we've assembled resources for you to help your child succeed during their time at UHart. Below you can learn about everything from upcoming family events, where to send a care package, see the academic calendar, and learn how to add money to your child's HawkCard.

We welcome you and your family to the unique environment that is the University of Hartford.

Resources for Students

We recognize this is a challening time for students and families, and want to help in any way we can. Below are a list of resources available:

Virtual Experience


We want to bring our unique in-person experience to you and your student virtually. We have put together several opportunities for you to connect with our campus community. 

  • Interactive campus tour
  • Conversation witht the dean of admission
  • Webinars
  • Instagram FAQ
  • Meet Bates House Admission and Financial Aid Team

Parent Hour Webinars

Your child's move to college isn't just about transition for them. It's a transition for you too. We invite you to join our Parent Hour, a series of webinars on popular topics commonly faced by students and families in their first year. At each session, faculty and staff will present on a timely topic followed by a Q&A session. This is a great way to get your questions answered, stay connected, and learn about the University.

How does it work?

For each session, we will send a separate email invite with a link to a webinar, where you can simply sign in and listen. We will include detailed login instructions with each invite.

Student Life & Support

Emergency Text Notifications

The University of Hartford provides an emergency notification system that enables you to receive alerts and updates as text messages on cell phones and through their UHart email accounts. Sign up to receive text alerts.

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. 

Adjusting to college life can be a challenge. That’s why, at the new Center for Student Success, we help students seamlessly transition into their first year. UHart students will receive one-on-one tutoring and support in areas such as:

We know that every student is different and we work collaboratively to celebrate and support each and every one of our students.
