The University of Bridgeport is located 55 miles from New York City, in Fairfield County, Connecticut.
Bridgeport, Connecticut’s largest city, borders the 50-acre campus to the north while historic Seaside Park and Long Island Sound, with some of the finest sandy beaches between New York and Cape Cod, mark the southern boundary.
The unique location of the campus offers a variety of advantages to the University community. The Sound and the Park are settings for studies in marine biology and for the enjoyment of sun and recreation.
The city and county provide opportunities for becoming involved in work-study programs with schools, government, and some of the country’s largest Fortune 500 and multinational corporations.
