UConn Bound

Congrats, You are #UConnBound!

Congratulations, you did it!! Welcome to your new home and family, UConn’s Department of Digital Media & Design! 
  • Join over 300 zany and passionate students who want to create, design, and strategize with you!
  • Collaborate with 10+ partnered corporations and organizations each semester.
  • Experience great internships and unique opportunities.
  • Gain the skills that will help you to land that dream job after graduation!

Computer Requirements: DMD majors must purchase a laptop and Adobe software. As this is required for the major, FAFSA packages can be used for the purchase. It is comforting to know that this has made our transition to online learning outstanding this semester, as students have what they need to succeed in most courses. Please see our DMD Computer Requirements guidelines, which also includes a First Year Recommended Accessory Kit and Gear Recommendations for Film/Video Production majors.

We are so sorry that, due to the COVID-19 outbreak and precautions, our in-person spring 2020 events for Admitted Students have been cancelled. DMD faculty and students were really looking forward to welcoming all of you and showing off our facilities and friendly atmosphere. UConn is monitoring the situation and is following the State of Connecticut’s regulations, specifically Governor Lamont’s Executive Order 7, which prohibits gatherings of 50+ people through April 30. Stay updated on UConn’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic here. UConn Admissions is also planning some virtual programming, check back here for updates.
However, please be sure to check this page regularly. We have uploaded a virtual tour and are looking into other creative ways that we can have you meet us and each other online. Be sure to follow us on social media as well!
