Key to UB Student Handbook

Revised 8/26/22

Greetings from the President

Danielle WilkenWelcome to the University of Bridgeport’s 2022-2023 academic year.

As we begin this new year, I’m excited that we are once again welcoming back hundreds of students from all over the world to our beautiful seaside campus.

UB has always been one of the most diverse and welcoming campuses in the country, and that’s part of what makes this institution such a unique and special place. By coming together to create an environment that is accepting of all cultures, we all learn more both inside and outside of the classroom.

Our new summer semester also provides you with more opportunities to take advantage of UB’s more than 80 career-focused programs and flexible degree options to prepare you for the future you envision.

In addition to our world class programs, you’ll find excellent experiences outside of the classroom. Our championship sports teams offer amazing opportunities for student athletes to compete at the collegiate level — and for all of us to come together to cheer for the Purple Knights. The Bauer Hall Innovation Center supports student entrepreneurs with the tools and information they need to launch businesses. And a wide variety of organizations, programs, and events on campus provide opportunities for you to socialize and get involved in the community.

Whether you’re passionate about business or education, health sciences or computer science, you’ll find the academic support, opportunities, and encouragement at UB to help get you to where you want to be.
