Welcome to the UConn Stamford Campus!
To accommodate the growing number of faculty, we have added an adjunct cubicle area on the third floor outside of the copier/printer room 3.31A. There are six desks and PC computers available for adjunct faculty use. You are more than welcome to utilize this space for course-related activities, including office hours, meetings with students, and administrative matters. The desks are first come, first served. Please do not leave any personal items in them.
It is possible to obtain temporary space for added office hours and/or larger gatherings with students, such as review or study sessions, by contacting Maxine Tobias in the Registrar’s Office.
All new adjunct faculty members are required to complete a Biographical and Contact Information Form.
Returning adjuncts should use the Biographical and Contact Information Form to update their information as needed.
