Bicycles should be chained to the bicycle racks located in the picnic grove to the west of the UConn Police Department Office in the library and to the northwest corner of Starr Hall near the Law Review office. Bicycles may not be left in the entryway to the Law Library. Bicycles locked to lampposts and similar items are removed and routed to the UConn Police Department for disposal.
The UConn Co-op, the official bookstore for the University of Connecticut, is open all year to serve the needs of all members of the university community. As a law school student you automatically are a member of the UConn Co-op. A one-time, refundable membership fee is assessed at the time of registration.
The Co-op stocks not only books and other educational materials required for classes, but also study aids, student and school supplies, general books, law reference books, New York Times subscription service, higher education pricing programs for both computer hardware and software, and UConn Law School-imprinted items such as sportswear and glassware, and other items of interest. Items needed by students and not immediately available can be ordered.
The UConn Co-op is located in Knight Hall. From late August until the beginning of July the hours are: 9 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Friday.
The University of Connecticut has an agreement with the on-site cafeteria vendor to provide food service on campus. The cafeteria, operated by an independent contractor, is located in the basement of Hosmer Hall (860.570.5304). The cafeteria is open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and on Friday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Food service includes hot breakfasts, daily luncheon specials, salads, soups, snacks, grilled dishes, and desserts. The cafeteria can also provide catering service for on-campus events.
Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to provide the right of first refusal to the on-site vendor for catering events that are held at the Law School. Please consult with the cafeteria vendor before hiring outside caterers.
The Law Library has three photocopy machines available for student use, on the first, third, and fifth floors. All of the machines operate on HuskyBucks, and the first and third floor machines also accept cash (bills and coins). Larger jobs can be taken to Kinko's, nearby on Farmington Avenue.
All vehicles driven or parked on the Law School campus by students must be registered with the Public Safety Office (main floor of the Library) and have a visible, valid sticker. Vehicles which are not registered with the Public Safety Office are subject to City of Hartford parking tickets.
The Traffic Regulations for Students and Employees are a part of this handbook. Students should note that they will receive a ticket if they park in the faculty-staff marked areas at any time except after 5 p.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends. Tickets will be given to anyone parked illegally or inappropriately. The Office of the Attorney General has been kind enough to allow students to park in their lot in the evenings after 5:00 p.m.
Accessible parking spaces are available for students who have appropriate state permits. Ticket appeal forms are available from Public Safety. A student committee reviews all ticket appeals.
The student lounge is located on the first floor of Knight Hall. Other student lounges are located on the third and fourth floors of the Law Library and the basement of Hosmer.
Snack food and beverage vending machines are located in the basement of Knight Hall , in the basement of Hosmer Hall and in the Library Lounge.
