Information for International Students

As globalization makes our world more interconnected, the University continues to examine and refine our vision of serving a broader global constituency, and to launch ventures abroad in order to reflect and accommodate the needs of students worldwide.

At the University of New Haven, you will discover we are entrepreneurial and driven to develop the talents within our faculty, students and staff. We specialize in emerging academic disciplines in close collaboration with leading universities in Asia, the Middle East, and Europe.

We are also an international university, with a diverse faculty and student body enriched by a strong global perspective. For decades, the University has specialized in training international students, who now constitute 10% of the student body.

Along with welcoming students from around the world into our West Haven campus in the heart of the Ivy League, the University of New Haven provides a range of opportunities for focused study in the U.S. and abroad. And in Prato Italy, University art students train in a repurposed 13th century Franciscan convent, featuring frescoes created by Niccolò di Pietro Gerini.

I invite you to learn more about our programs and collaborations, faculty, and University. Throughout your  experience you will find there are many offices, services and people ready to help you transition to the U.S. and make the most of your time here. Please feel free to contact me via email or phone. I look forward to hearing from you.
