About Southern Connecticut State University



Students center           Southern is a medium-sized university campus (approximately 10,500 students) located on 168 acres in New Haven, Connecticut – a coastal city about two hours northeast of New York City and two-and-a-half hours southwest of Boston, Massachusetts. Quick and convenient public transportation is available for travel to both metropolitan centers, and New Haven provides easy access to the scenic Connecticut shoreline, as well as the picturesque towns and villages of Connecticut's Northeast corner, the Berkshires in Massachusetts, and many more lovely New England settings. Southern is an ideal location to host international students from all over the world.  
                                                                                                                                    What sets Southern apart from other schools is our friendly campus community, where you will find academic excellence, innovative approaches to learning, and close working relationships between faculty and students. With 114 undergraduate and graduate programs, Southern will prepare you for a rewarding professional life in fields such as business, psychology, nursing, education, liberal studies, biology, communication, and more.
