The mathematics department is in the Monteith building on the University of Connecticut campus in Storrs, Mansfield, CT.Â The address is:
Department of Mathematics
University of Connecticut
341 Mansfield Road U1009
Storrs, Connecticut 06269-1009
but on a map of the campus you may be more successful searching for “Monteith” or even “Henry Ruthven Monteith”.
Access by road
Access to Storrs is easiest by private vehicle.
- From the northeast (Boston) you should take I90 to I84 to CT 320S and then CT 195S
- From the west (Hartford) you could take I84 to CT 195S or I384 to US 44E and then CT 195S
- From the east (Providence) one would usually take either US 6W to CT 195N or begin on US 6W and then take US 44W to CT 195S
- From NYC and environs you should take I95N to I91N to I84 and proceed as from Hartford.
Upon initial arrival at campus you may need to park in a visitor lot. The main ones are the North and South garages, which can be found on google maps. Or look at a more detailed parking map of UConn.Â If keeping your car on campus you should be able to get an inexpensive parking pass (email me about this).
Access by Air
The major airports for access to the region serve New York City (JFK, LGA, EWR) and Boston (BOS), but for access to campus it is much more convenient to fly into Hartford’s Bradley Airport (BDL).
- From Bradley Airport you have at least two options:
- Take the Bradley Flyer to get to Hartford’s Union Station bus depot, then takeÂ CT Bus Route 913 to campus.
- A taxi from the airport to campus costs about $90 one way.
- There was at one time a UConn Airport Shuttle. I believe it was discontinued during the Covid pandemic. If it has resumed operation you are likely to find information about it at the UConn Transportation Site.
- From NYC Area Airports. There are numerous options, but all are somewhat long. I don’t cover how to get from the airport to the relevant starting point in NYC; for these I recommend using information on the airport websites.
- Get from the airport to the NYC Port Authority Bus terminal and take a Peter Pan bus to campus or a bus to Hartford and thenÂ CT Bus Route 913 to campus.
- Get from the airport to Grand Central Station and take Metro North Rail to New Haven station, then CT Rail to Hartford and CT Bus Route 913 to campus.
- Get from the airport to NYC Penn station and take Amtrak to Hartford then CT Bus Route 913 to campus.
- From Boston Logan Airport.
- It may be possible to get a direct bus to campus run by Peter Pan Buses, though I am not certain this runs during the summer.
- You can get a bus from Peter Pan or Greyhound to Hartford Union Station and then take CT Bus Route 913 to campus.
- You could go into Boston and get an Amtrak train to Hartford, then take CT Bus Route 913 to campus. This probably takes longer and costs more than the previous option, so is perhaps only better if you have another reason to spend time in Boston.
Public transportation to campus is limited.Â Your best bet is probably to use rail or bus to get to Hartford and then take CT Bus 913, though a direct bus from NYC or Boston may be possible.
- Direct buses to campus
- From Hartford’s Union station to campus you can use CT Bus Route 913.
- There is or was service to campus by Peter Pan Buses. There were buses from the NYC Port Authority Bus Terminal and from Boston Logan Airport, with some other stops. It is not clear to me whether these always run in the summers.
- Getting to Hartford’s Union station
- Rail access from regional cities is possible on either Amtrak (more expensive) or CTRail (cheaper, but more limited). CTRail only goes from New Haven CT to Springfield MA, but it connects to Metro North Rail in New Haven CT, and Metro North connects to the entire NYC public transit network at Grand Central Station in NYC.
- Buses access from cities and airports in the region are run by Greyhound, Peter Pan and Megabus.
