UConn students living off-campus have the opportunity to live more independently with increased rights and responsibilities as a student, tenant and community member. For many students this is their first time living in an independent environment within a residential community. Students must remember that they are no longer living in housing provided exclusively for students, but rather a diverse community that consists of a wide variety of residents. The neighborhoods are home to families, young professionals, retired couples and other types of neighbors. UConn students need to keep these neighbors and their rights in mind while they are living off-campus. While attending UConn, students are representing the University and have the responsibility to ensure to conduct themselves and their guests in a manner consistent with The Student Code.

While the University of Connecticut has a long and interesting history, the region that the University is located also holds a unique past. The following links will help you explore the rich history of and current information about the community in which you live:

Concerns with Neighbors
Early dialogue between students and their neighbors helps to cultivate mutual respect and prevent misunderstandings. Storrs/Mansfield residents that have attempted to communicate to student neighbors with no success, please contact the appropriate Town of Mansfield office to report your concern.
