UConn ECE students and instructors are welcome to visit any UConn Campus. While on campus, students can take a campus tour, visit museums, check out the dining facilities, attend a performance, lecture or cultural event, and explore library resources. The UConn ECE office is happy to suggest a variety of campus visit options to but cannot plan the agenda for a visit. If an instructor is thinking of bringing an entire class as a part of a lesson, he or she should contact with the faculty coordinator first in order to plan an experience.
Campus visits require a high level of preparation on the part of the University. Instructors should begin planning 30 days prior to the requested date of visit. The UConn ECE office asks that you inform us of you visit by filling a "Campus Visit Form".
