Avery Point Campus

Gifts to the Avery Point Campus fund support the areas of greatest need at UConn Avery Point.

UConn Avery Point’s historic waterfront campus boasts small class sizes, engaging faculty, a new student center, and top-notch maritime studies and marine sciences degree programs that fulfill UConn’s mission as a sea grant university.

Avery Point is the location of the Northeast Underwater Research, Education & Technology Center (NURTEC), the Connecticut Sea Grant College Program, and the Institute for Community Resiliency and Climate Adaptation, a collaborative effort designed to increase sustainability for vulnerable shoreline communities in Connecticut.
