Welcome to the University of Bridgeport! I have been with the University for twenty-two years and am proud of both our rich history and recent achievements. It is a profoundly beautiful place, located on the stunning oceanfront of Seaside Park, where we enjoy one of the most extraordinary locations in American higher education.
The University of Bridgeport is one of the most diverse institutions in higher ed, with students from across the United States and around the globe. Many also join us from New York, New Jersey, and our surrounding Connecticut communities. Our students share a passion for discovery and applying the knowledge acquired in the classroom to real-world, practical experience. They are bold and resilient—breaking boundaries and forging new paths through the challenging landscape of the 21st century.
The University’s three colleges: the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Health Sciences, and the College of Engineering, Business, and Education, are uniquely structured so that each student benefits from small class sizes with caring and talented faculty at the forefront of their fields. Our career-focused curriculum and cutting-edge programs prepare our students for the professions of the future.
In 2020, we have entered into a groundbreaking arrangement with Goodwin University, Paier College, and Sacred Heart University. We are all working together to serve our students, our community, and our beautiful campus by Seaside Park. This innovative arrangement will ensure that we will provide an outstanding education to the global citizens of tomorrow and continue our career-oriented mission to promote academic excellence, personal responsibility, and commitment to service.
The University of Bridgeport is a welcoming and remarkable place that opens the doors of opportunity and transforms the lives our students. I am proud and thankful to be part of this amazing institution and I know you will be too.
