UConn Law Campus

The 17-acre UConn Law campus in the West End of Hartford consists of five granite buildings in Collegiate Gothic style with a central quadrangle graced by the U-shaped “Middle Path” sculpture by Robert Sindorf. Four of the buildings were constructed in the 1920s and the fifth, the Thomas J. Meskill Law Library, was completed in 1996 with stone cut from the same quarry. The campus is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  The campus grounds and library are open to the public. The five buildings are:

  • Cheryl A. Chase Hall, which houses the dean’s office, several other administrative offices and the two largest lecture rooms on campus.
  • William F. Starr Hall, which contains the Reading Room, site of the law school’s largest events, several  classrooms and the offices of student journals.
  • Hosmer Hall, site of faculty offices, the Insurance Law Center, and Janet M. Blumberg Hall, where many law school events are held.
  • Knight Hall, which contains classrooms, a student lounge and a fitness center.
  • The Thomas J. Meskill Law Library , which has a multitude of study spaces, several classrooms and a cafe.
