The UConn-Avery Point campus is located on 73 scenic acres at the southernmost point of Groton, Connecticut. Currently, the school has several different four-year programs (maritime studies, coastal studies, and general studies), but most students at Avery Point do not enroll in one of these programs. Almost all of our students are aspiring business, nursing, communications, history, or some other social science or laboratory science major that simply want the small class atmosphere before relocating to Storrs for their final two years. We offer hundreds of classes in all academic areas. In the rare event that a student wants to take a class that is not offered at Avery Point, they can take the class on the Storrs campus and remain eligible to play sports at Avery Point. One of the most attractive features of all courses at Avery Point is the small class size. Almost every class on our campus has fewer than 40 students. UConn-Avery Point has many of the features students would want at a four-year school. The school has a library, cafeteria, 24-hour safety and security officers, a bookstore, computer labs, an academic advising office, a counseling center, employment opportunities, an art gallery, student government opportunities, and three intercollegiate sports.
UConn-Avery Point is a member of the National Junior College Athletic Association and particpates in three sports; Baseball, Men's Basketball and Women's Basketball. All three sports participate in the New England Region (XXI) of the NJCAA. Baseball plays at the Division II level, while the Men's and Women's Basketball programs play at the Division III level.
