The University of Connecticut (UConn) is a public research university in the U.S. state of Connecticut. UConn was founded in 1881 and is a Land Grant and Sea Grant college & member of the Space Grant Consortium.
The Avery Point Campus was founded in 1967 on the property that was once Morton Plant's private residence. Beautifully situated on the Long Island Sound, Avery Point excels in offering Research 1 level academics to the Southeastern Connecticut Region, and beyond.
We are excited to celebrate 50 years of excellence and invite you to visit our beautiful campus and join us in the many special events we have planned this year.

We have unearthed from our records the orientation handbook from one of the very first cohorts at UConn Avery Point, 1968’s incoming Freshmen–aka, the class of ’72.The handbook is a great link to the past, offering information about the University’s policies and procedures on everything from the dress code and how to access cancellations, to financial aid, student organizations, even the campus BOWLING ALLEY(??). It’s a really interesting glimpse into the past.
Take a look!
