The UConn Recovery Community (URC) provides an environment that is supportive to the therapeutic and educational needs of UConn students recovering from addiction. The URC provides support through community building, social support, academic support, substance free activities, advocacy, outreach, and creating greater opportunities to access resources and services available on campus.

Beginning in September 2017 the URC will be providing an opportunity for URC members to live together in a supportive, sober community while participating in the URC programs. Recovery Housing is on a first come first serve basis.  Students in recovery, with three (3) month’s sobriety and abstinence from substances may be eligible for recovery housing.

Eligible students in recovery may apply by doing the following:

  • Indicating they are interested in recovery housing on their Residential Life Housing Application
  • Applying for URC Membership – Contact Eileen Stone, Director of Wellness & Prevention Services, at (860) 486-9431 or at stone@uconn.edu
