About the Center for International Students and Scholars

The Center for International Students and Scholars (CISS) opened in July 2022 to create a welcoming space for international students and visiting scholars and bring together services for international students and visiting scholars at the Storrs campus.  The CISS includes:

    • Programming and activities to help international students and visiting scholars connect with each other and the greater UConn community and develop intercultural skills to help them succeed.  
    • Offers intensive ESL courses to full-time and part-time English language learners and support for international Teaching Assistants. 

Visit CISS

Visit the center Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm at 2019 Hillside Road, Storrs, CT, 06269.
