Transfer Student Housing Options

Transfer students live in all areas of campus and generally live on floors that are a mix of returning UConn students, transfer students, and UConn students who were previously attending a regional campus and have campus changed to the Storrs campus. With professional Hall Directors in each area as well as Resident Assistants (RAs) throughout the halls, these housing help students find community when they arrive!

While new transfer students may be assigned into other areas pending availability, the majority will live in one of the following areas.

Busby Suites

A portion of the second floor of Busby Suites is reserved for the Transfer Connections Learning Community, which comprises about 10% of the building's population.
