Welcome to the University of Bridgeport! The University boasts one of the most extraordinary locations in American higher education. Our front door is Long Island Sound, and the three-mile-long pristine, oceanfront Seaside Park is a place where local community members and students alike enjoy the beach, beautiful amenities, and the natural splendor of coastal New England.
The University of Bridgeport is one of the most diverse institutions in higher education. Our students come from across the United States and around the globe. In fact, many join us from our surrounding Connecticut communities, New York, and New Jersey. Their backgrounds are as multifaceted as their interests. University of Bridgeport students share a passion for discovery and applying the knowledge acquired in the classroom with real-world, applied experience. They are bold and fearless—breaking boundaries and working across our career-focused curriculum.
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 innovative and caring faculty, who are at the forefront of their fields. Our cutting-edge programs prepare our students for the careers of tomorrow.
The University of Bridgeport is a remarkable place that opens the doors of opportunity and transforms the lives our students. Bridgeport is a vibrant, historic city—a place where our community of scholars and practitioners flourish. I am confident that you will agree.
