Navigating UConn Hartford Campus

The conference will take place in two buildings — the Hartford Times Building (HTB), which is labeled "UConn Hartford" on the map, and the Hartford Public Library. After the conference, we those interested in staying a little longer to talk and eat will be gathering at the very nearby Bear's Smokehouse Barbecue. The maps below depict the UConn Harford campus and surrounding area as well as how to travel between these locations (click to enlarge).
