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 and shops. 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, Connecting with the Arts House, Honors House, Innovation House, Humanities House, and others, provide students the opportunity to live with friends who share interests, lifestyle, or commitment to a major.
DMD @ STORRS
We believe that for our students to best succeed in their future careers, they should have access to, and experience with, industry-standard tools. In the Bishop Center, we host brand new (renovated summer 2018) state-of-the-art facilities. And all DMD classes are all held within walking distance to the shops and restaurants of Downtown Storrs.
There are ample opportunities to work together on amazing projects. Recently, our students created incredible works in collaboration with: AntU (interactive museum exhibition), Connecticut Repertory Theatre (projection mapping set design), The Bushnell in Hartford (architectural projection mapping), the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center (Courtroom 600 VR experience). Students will learn teamwork, have amazing mentorship, and earn incredible industry experience in DMD classes.
