Read below to answer questions about the Presidents' College.
Most courses take place in the Mortensen Library KF Room, but sometimes we must move elsewhere and can’t always secure classroom space until shortly before a program or course begins. We do our best to get the word out to participants about location changes before each event starts. A course coordinator will notify you if the class location has changed. When in doubt, call the Presidents’ College at860.768.4495.
If you signed up for a class, please assume you are registered and plan to attend on the date and place listed. You will be notified if a class is canceled or filled. If you are concerned about whether we have received your registration, call the Presidents’ College at 860.768.4495.
The course coordinator will notify you if reading is required in advance.
If the University closes for severe weather or any other reason, Presidents' College courses and events are canceled. Complete closing information is posted at hartford.edu, or you may call 860.768.4100. Please check these sources to confirm any information you see on TV or hear on the radio. We will be in touch with you about makeup sessions.
If, as a Fellow of the Presidents' College, you have been issued a parking permit, please hang it on the inside rearview mirror of your vehicle whenever you park on campus. You may park in any legal or unreserved space in any of the faculty, student, or visitor lots at any time of the day. But if you park in a student or faculty lot without displaying the permit, you will be ticketed. If you run into problems or have questions, please call the Office of Public Safety at 860.768.7985. If you are not a Fellow, the volunteer coordinator for your course will send you a parking permit valid for the duration of the course. If the permit does not reach you by the date of the first course session, park in a Visitors Lot.
