The University of Hartford was chartered on Feb. 21, 1957, as a University for the Hartford community. It merged three existing schools, the Hartford Art School, the Hartt School of Music, and Hillyer College. Today’s University of Hartford has surpassed the founders’ original but modest plans for a local university in Hartford, becoming instead a vibrant comprehensive University that draws 7,400 students from 45 states and 49 countries. The University of Hartford has become a university for the world.
