  • According to Michael Alfultis, Ph.D., Campus Director: " Surrounded by water on three sides, Avery Point is the University of Connecticut's campus by the sea, providing our students an environment that is both picturesque and practical. This waterfront campus, located on Long Island Sound at the mouth of the Thames River, combines the elegance of the past - in the mansion and buildings associated with the estate of Morton Plant - with state-of-the-art marine science facilities. Students enjoy the use of high-tech classrooms, computer labs, a UCONN Co-Op bookstore, a branch of the UCONN Library system, the Academic Center, the Student Union, a gymnasium with a pool, café with food service options, ample and varied study lounges and spaces, and plenty of easy parking."
