It's time for our third Storrs Center Stroll! UConn students, alumni, faculty, staff, and friends are invited to a one-day open house at the new Storrs Center across from campus. If you haven’t seen the latest offerings, you’re in for a treat.

Enjoy samples from businesses, giveaways, UConn performing groups, family-friendly activities, and more. Meet special guests including Jonathan the Husky mascot. You'll also find our Student Alumni Association Prize Patrol roaming around with giveaways. 

This event is free. If you're an alum attending the Stroll, pre-registration using this online form is encouraged. Walk-ins are also very welcome. Be sure to check-in at the UConn Alumni table on the Betsy Paterson Town Square to receive your full event directory, commemorative UConn Nation button that allows access to all business specials, and additional giveaways. Two-hour free parking is available in the Storrs Center Parking Garage and Dog Lane Parking Lot.
