UB Student Life

student-life1

Vibrant. Diverse. Global. Transformative.

The campus community at the University of Bridgeport embraces and celebrates the uniqueness of our student body. At our international, diverse campus, you’ll be prepared to become engaged and responsible leaders, ready for the new global world we live in.

Your development will be encouraged by caring staff and faculty who will guide you through your journey. Here, learning takes place in and out of the classroom. You will be encouraged to acquire new information and skills, form new attitudes, insights, and understanding yourself and the world around you.

Get Involved

Student life at UB is engaging, exciting, and fun. With more than 50 active student clubs and organizations, it’s hard not to be involved on campus. Our campus has something to offer everyone.

Join or start a club, play an intramural sport, run for student government. Participate in and plan new campus activities. Jog next to the ocean at Seaside Park. Grab a coffee in the Knights End Cafe, or meet up with your friends for a pick-up game of basketball. The choices are endless for involvement in campus life at UB.
