How to Arrange a Visit

We strongly encourage prospective students and their families to visit the University and College. Several options for doing this are listed below.

University Open House 

The University sponsors two open house events each year. The fall open house is for all prospective students and takes place in the latter half of September. The spring open house is for admitted students and is held in mid-late April. Open houses are the best opportunity to learn about the admissions process, financial aid, housing and student life, and to attend informational sessions specific to your area(s) of interest.  Information on open house events can be obtained by contacting the Undergraduate Admissions Office

Lodewick Visitors Center

Contact the Lodewick Visitors Center (phone: (860) 486-4900) to arrange a guided campus tour and for other suggestions regarding your visit to the Storrs campus.  

Departments in the College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources

Our academic departments welcome the opportunity to visit with prospective students and their families. If you wish to meet with faculty or staff to learn about curricula and activities associated with a given department, we encourage you to contact the respective unit directly. At times, it can be challenging for departments to accommodate all of the requests that they receive. Therefore we ask that you please try to schedule a date and time as far in advance as possible.

Husky-for-a-Day Program

Prospective students can attend classes with a current student, sample meals at a dining facility, and visit residence halls. This is a great way to get the “feel” of the University. For more information, visit the Husky-for-a-Day website, call (860) 486-1601, or email
