Public Records at UConn

Freedom of Information and Transparency

University Communications works in close collaboration with the Office of the General Counsel to manage and administer the important public function of providing access to University records. As a public institution of higher education, UConn is committed to the transparent conduct of its state business and the management of access to University records is a crucial part of that responsibility.

Visit the Public Records at UConn website to make a public records request, view the request log, or learn more.

Public Records Management

As a public agency and state-supported institution of higher education, UConn is subject to the requirements of the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). The Connecticut Freedom of Information Act (C.G.S. § 1-200 et seq.) is a state law that promotes government transparency by providing access to the records and meetings of public agencies in the State of Connecticut. At UConn we are committed to responding as promptly as possible to public records requests while also protecting the privacy rights of our students and employees.
