About The Campus
Storrs is a town-within-a-town, and there’s plenty here to make students feel at home. UConn Storrs has on-campus entertainment and major arts venues including: the Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts, Connecticut Repertory Theatre, and the William Benton Museum of Art. Students engage in long-standing traditions like sledding down Horsebarn Hill, enjoying UConn’s own ice cream at The Dairy Bar, and of course, cheering on the UConn Huskies at sporting events. Our building, Bishop Center, is just a few short steps from Downtown Storrs, which is home to many restaurants. There are many DMD-led student clubs including: UConn Film Club, Computer Graphics Club, and Gaming Club. However, Digital Media & Design students can participate in hundreds of organizations on campus! We have students involved in a wide variety of activities including athletics, marching band, A Cappella, greek life, and more!
Traditional residence halls, apartments, and suites provide a variety of options for students who live on campus. 19 different residential Learning Communities including Fine Arts House, Honors House, and Innovation House, provide students the opportunity to live with friends who share interests, lifestyle, or commitment to a major.
