University of Connecticut-Tri-Campus

Waterbury, CT 06702

The University of Connecticut-Tri-Campus is a public university with undergraduate and graduate degree programs. The campus was established over 60 years ago in Waterbury, Connecticut. Waterbury is about 77 miles northeast of New York City and 33 miles southwest of Hartford. Nicknamed the Brass City, Waterbury was home to a large industrial industry. It is now home to the UConn Waterbury campus, with programs geared toward business, law, education, and politics. Many of the programs require students to transfer to the main campus in Storrs after completing their first two years.

The University of Connecticut-Tri-Campus in Waterbury only offers two nursing paths. They offer a traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program and an accelerated BSN program. The traditional program provides students with clinical experience at nearby clinics. Both programs are accredited by the CCNE and approved by the Connecticut State Board of Nurse Examiners. The BSN is a traditional 4-year baccalaureate program, with the first two years of classes completed at the Waterbury campus. The accelerated program is designed for those with a baccalaureate degree in fields other than nursing. UConn does offer additional nursing programs. However, these nursing programs are mostly offered at the main campus in Storrs, Connecticut.
