University of New Haven Top Questions

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?


The over-emphasis on the CJ and Engineering programs.


The worst thing about my school would be that the food is not as good as other schools that i have visited.


It's near New Haven. Since New Haven is considered to be an unsafe city to be in it's scary to think that something can happen if you walk alone near New Haven.


The accounting program is not accredited, although University of New Haven has been trying for many years to become accredited. Accreditation would give me more opportunities in my field.


The available housing is the worst part about this school. Housing is not gauranteed, and even though it is given by a lottery systerm that is completely fair, there just isn't enough housing to accomodate all the students that need it.


The university needs to have more housing available or the student population, which seems to increase every school year.


I consider the worst thing about my school to be the registration process. There are a lot of students that have to take the same classes, but either that class sizes are too small or there are not enough sections of the class offered. The site we used to use to register would constantly crash on top of that. Not only were there not enough classes, but only a few students were able to get through to register for them. However, the site was just switched and this one does not crash, which is an improvement.


Tuition, hoursing, and meal plans are extremely expensive because I come from a relatively poor family. I was only able to attend college with the help of financial aid and scholarships. The college is so expensive that my family decided that it would be cheaper for me to rent an apartment off campus and to commute to school. The school, also, has limited parking, so if a student does show up by a certain time, nearly every parking spot on campus is filled. Commuting is still costly because of rising gas prices and automobile maintenance.


The least desirable thing about the University of New Haven would be the parking situtuation. As a commuter I often have trouble finding a decent parking spot and have to park in a lot that is inconvenient to get to during the day.




The worst aspect of the University of New Haven is that there is not a lot of on campus housing. For your first year, you are ensured on campus housing if you wish, but after your first year, it's all luck. For me personally, I want to live on campus all four years for convenience.


The food selections are a bit limited.


The worst thing about my school is the food. The food served lacks flavor and is often very bland. Since the school is a small, private university the food should be a little better.


The worst thing about the University of New Haven is the fact that the University of accepting more students but is not making accomodations for the size. It is becoming more difficult to get into the classes needed and whether or not you get into UNH housing is based on luck.


The parking situation is awful, since the school is constantly expanding and the enrollment grows with each passing year. Parking is by far the worst aspect of campus and the general consensus of the entire student and faculty body.


I would consider the construction noise near the campus the worst thing about my school because I cannot concentrate on my studies with loud noises.


It is really expensive, and sometimes financial aid can't do much to help students figure out what they need to to do get more money


It is becoming overcrowded


The tuition, UNH is a great school with many resources but it is too expensive, alot of people start their college careers here but are forced to transfer due to the expense.


OVERCROWDING!!!! They are accepting way too many students who don't deserve to be here!


The worst thing about my school is the cost. It's almost $40,000 a year. It is private school but I don't think it should be that much to attend. People should have access to education. Some people have to work and go to school at the same time and it's not easy. I wish the school tuition was less.


I consider the worst thing about my school is the surrounding community. The University is located directly next to a ghetto where crimes are often being taken place. As far as the school goes, I think the school is a great place to be attending.


The worst thing about my school would have to be the area it's located in and its expenses. The University's location is in an area where there are many occurences of violence. This isn't the safest place in the world, but the campus police does its best to ensure safety amongst the students. Also, like any other college, mine comes with a lot of costly expenses. This isn't easy to deal with, but hopefully, in the end, the education will be worthwhile.


One of the worst things about my school is the lack of help that the school administration gives to students. This includes the burslar office as well individual advisors given to students. Asking for help can be compared to pulling teeth. You are either put into a situation where the person acts annoyed as if your question causes them pain. Or a situation where your question is never answered to the full extent of their capabilities.


There are not too many extracurricular activities, and the ones that are advertised are not what they say they are. There is not enough emphasis put on musical groups at the school and I believe if more work was put into them, many more students would be involved.


High crime area. Shady neighborhood. Anyone can go onto campus- not enough barrier security.


Cost. I have very little income.


The administration(Financial Aid and the President mostly)


I dislike the administration. They seem to care more about future students than the students that are here now, and I do not think that is right. We are the ones currently paying tuition, and our needs should be looked at first.


Due to the fact that many of the students are from Connecticut, many people go home on the weekends. The only people you can rely on to stick around are the people on sports teams.


The tuition. It is a very expensive private school. For me to attend I have to rely heavily upon finacial aid.


For the price we all pay, we definitely don't get as much as we should. Staff and faculty are not as helpful as we were told. When we came on tours as high schoolers, the school makes everything seem a lot better than it is.


The worst thing about my school is the uncertainty of receiving a well paying job/carrer after graduation.
