Our Virtual Semester

Hey everyone! Welcome and welcome back! As we all know, COVID-19 had changed University policies and safety guidelines for the semester. Here at UConn Habitat, we want all of our amazing members to stay healthy and safe as well.

To accommodate, we are re-launching our website and will be on all of our social media to stay connected! On our home page, you will notice two hyperlinks: one to sign up for our email list, and one to submit photos of any activities you have been a part of with us! We are still getting the hang of all the resources available through this website so don’t be surprised if it looks different next time you log on!

If you have any questions about how this semester will look, or any ideas we could implement this year, feel free to email them to

Sincerely, your E-Board!

COVID Announcement

As we begin another school year, we will be facing the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Habitat for Humanity is a volunteer organization that works mainly on home build projects, as well as other services to fundraise for our Eastern CT affiliate.

We will be following both, the University of Connecticut’s COVID-19 guidelines, as well as those set forth by Habitat for Humanity. We will work within our limitations for fundraise for our Habitat affiliate and to raise awareness about homelessness and housing deficiencies across the world.

Follow us on our socials and subscribe to our emails for more updates as the semester goes on!

Welcome to UConn Habitat for Humanity!

Our student-run organization works with Eastern Connecticut Habitat for Humanity to educate our community on homelessness and housing deficiencies, as well as volunteering to build with them! We fundraise year-long so that we can donate to the Eastern Connecticut Habitat affiliate at the end of each school year.

Some small fundraisers we have done in the past include Krispy Kreme fundraisers, as well as a Fall Fest, and canning events. We also have two annual fundraisers that raise a large sum for our affiliate! Check out our Cardboard City page as well as our Jail N Bail page.

Habitat for Humanity seeks to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope. Here at UConn, we do the same. While fundraising for Eastern CT Habitat for Humanity, we strive to educate the student body about homelessness and housing deficiencies in our modern world. Together, we volunteer around the state to make a positive impact in the lives of those in need. Join Habitat today to be part of the difference!
