The University of Connecticut Board of Trustees voted Wednesday, April 27 to close the Torrington branch due to declining enrollment, according to university spokeswoman Stephanie Reitz.

The decrease in enrollment has “hampered the university’s ability to provide an experience at [Torrington] that is equivalent to other UConn locations,” Reitz said in a UConn Today article.

The Board of Trustees voted to authorize the closing of the campus as well as to direct university officials to offer every UConn Torrington student the opportunity to continue their education at other UConn campuses.
