About the Program


The UConn Recovery Community (URC) is located on the University of Connecticut’s (UConn) main campus in Storrs, Ct. The URC was launched in February 2013 in response to a growing need for recovery support on campus for students. The URC is located within in the department of Wellness & Prevention Service, and works collaboratively with Counseling and Mental Health Services providing students with advocacy, programming and recovery support. The URC has their own home on campus with programming space and beginning in September 2017 the URC will be providing a new residential opportunity for members with three (3) months of sobriety – to live together in a supportive, sober community while participating in the URC programs. Any students that has a desire for recovery support, recovery housing or to become members of the URC may contact UConn’s Wellness & Prevention Services at 860-486-9431,

A Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP) is a college or university-provided program that includes a supportive environment within the campus culture. CRPs reinforce the decision to engage in a lifestyle of recovery from addiction/substance use disorder. It is designed to provide an educational opportunity alongside recovery supports to ensure that students do not have to sacrifice one for the other.
