Gov. Dannel P. Malloy joined UConn President Susan Herbst, legislators and guests Wednesday as the University announced the demographics and accomplishments of the new Class of 2022.

Thousands of students are returning to UConn this week, including about 12,300 moving into Storrs residence halls and about 420 in housing near UConn Stamford. Freshmen start moving in to residence halls at 7 a.m. Friday, followed by upperclassmen and transfer students over the weekend.

Overall, about 23,000 undergraduate students will start classes on Monday, Aug. 27 at Storrs and the regional campuses. Many thousands of additional students are also enrolled at other locations in UConn’s schools of law, medicine and dental medicine.
