  • A Message from the President

    Dear Students:

    The Nov. 19 issue of News Flash, the University’s online newsletter, explains that I have been appointed to Connecticut Governor-Elect Ned Lamont’s transition team as a non-partisan member.

    I am honored to be asked by the Governor-elect to offer my perspective on higher education and other issues of interest to the citizens of Connecticut, and I felt it important for our campus community to understand the non-partisan nature of my appointment.

    As your president, I represent all students, faculty, and staff, and am bound by the ethics standards of the State of Connecticut. I sign a statement each year re-pledging my commitment to honoring and upholding those standards, which include prohibitions from me campaigning for any candidate. Furthermore, I have never contributed funds to any political campaigns in Connecticut. It is in that spirit and under those rules that I will be offering non-partisan advice and counsel to the governor-elect.

    It was in that same spirit that I was comfortable in then-candidate Lamont’s visit to our campus on Oct. 30. The visit was initiated and hosted by the student club, Campus Democrats. As club president Alex Thompson ’20 reiterated to the audience that day, the University does not endorse any political candidate.

    When candidates from other political parties are invited to campus by other student groups, we cordially make our facilities available. Over the years, numerous debates between candidates for public office in Connecticut have been held on our campus.

    I want Eastern to continue to be a place where matters of interest to our campus community can be discussed in civil and open forums. Only by honoring the ethical standards and protocols I have described above can we do so in a way that is above reproach.

    Each of our students has aspirations for a successful career. In addition to helping students realize those professional dreams, Eastern wants students to learn what it means for them to be engaged citizens. Participating in the electoral process is a responsibility for all active citizens; that responsibility includes following the rules. As your president, I am committed to being a role model for our students, as we work together to promote social discourse, building a culture conducive to free inquiry.

    President Elsa Núñez

  • Student File Storage

    Dear Students,

    Summer 2018 Eastern retired the current student network file shares, known as the Z: Drive. The new default file storage system is Microsoft OneDrive for Business.  ITS migrated all student data from the local Z: drives to O365 OneDrive for Business in the Microsoft cloud.  This move not only provides greater accessibility and more granular recovery, it significantly increases storage for each student by 20,000 times the current allocation.

    Additional information was emailed during the summer and again in the fall as students return to campus. The ITS Help Desk is available to assist all students. In addition, a series of short informational/tutorial videos on O365 OneDrive for Business are available at

    Some advantages of O365 OneDrive:

    • O365 integration provides online editing and collaboration tools for Microsoft Office documents
    • OneDrive will have 5TB of storage, 20,000 times more than the current Z: Drive
    • OneDrive stores documents of nearly any file type
    • Files may be accessed from any location on any device via the Internet

    Individual files may be shared with other Eastern students and/or faculty to allow for real-time collaboration/editing.

  • The Immigration Detention and DACA (IDD) Clinic

    The Immigration Detention and DACA (IDD) Clinic at UConn Law School is offering legal consultations for people who have lost, or will be losing, protection they previously had under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) or Temporary Protected Status (TPS) programs.  The consultations will provide advice on possible immigration avenues, and assistance on DACA renewal for those who qualify, but the IDD Clinic is generally not equipped to provide further representation.  The consultations will be performed by teams of law student interns under the supervision of an experienced attorney.  Consultations and any other services will be free of charge (except for potential filing fees) and will likely require two or more meetings at the UConn Law School in Hartford.  If you would like a consultation with the IDD Clinic, please contact Jon Bauer, at or 860-570-5205, or Anna Cabot, at or 860-570-5460. 

    Please note that the scope of the immigration services offered by the clinic are limited.  Gregory F. Daniels, Esq., Assistant Counsel/Director of Freedom of Information for the Connecticut State Colleges & Universities, is available to answer questions at (860) 723-0018 or

  • Eastern & Merit

    Eastern Student Achievement Merit Badges

    Eastern Connecticut State University wants to make sure that students are recognized for their accomplishments. The University uses a web-based platform called “Merit” to publicize your accomplishments—making the dean’s list, completing a study abroad program, conducting student research, playing on a successful athletic team, or winning a scholarship, for example. This platform allows us to send news items about your achievements to your hometown newspapers, and also publishes them on the web.
    For more information, visit University Relations Merit Pages.

  • New Weather Closing Policy

    In the event of a delayed opening of the University, any class that would have at least 45 minutes of meeting time remaining after the announced opening time will meet starting at the announced opening time.

For example, with a 10 a.m. opening, classes running from 9:30-10:45 would meet from 10-10:45 a.m.

    In the event of an early closing of the University, any class that would have at least 45 minutes of meeting time prior to the announced closing time will meet until the announced closing time. Any class meeting that would have fewer than 45 minutes of meeting time before the announced closing time will not meet. For example, with a 3 p.m. closing, classes running from 2-3:15 p.m. would meet from 2-3 p.m.
