Important Announcement for Fall 2020


Due to the unpredictable outlook for Covid-19, the at-risk nature of the population we serve, and the University’s plans, the OLLI at UConn Fall 2020 session will be entirely online. The fall semester will take place during the usual 10 weeks, from September 8th through November 17th, in which we will offer a full slate of 1-10 week courses, Monday – Friday. All classes will be held on Zoom.



Are you over 50 and interested in expanding your horizons?

OLLI is the program for you!

Welcome to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at UConn Waterbury, where adult learners 50 and above come to expand their minds and connect with other seasoned learners. We are proud to offer a community that invigorates the lives of lifelong learners from across Connecticut.

OLLI at UConn is about friendship, learning and giving. Classes and activities are held year-round. Whether it’s a local or overnight trip, a get-together for book discussions or favorite films, a committee meeting or a gathering to register for courses, our members are active in and out of class every day of the week. Our activities are online until 2021, but we're not letting that stop us!

Your enthusiasm for learning and social engagement brings a new energy to UConn Waterbury. Every year, OLLI becomes more closely integrated with the activities of the campus’ professors and students. Between us, we are developing pioneering inter-generational connections through classes and activities. In this way and many others, OLLI has sparked countless new friendships, new ways of thinking, and for many, a new outlook on life! As an OLLI member, you'll open the door to endless opportunities for intellectual and social stimulation. Whether you're here solely to take classes or enjoy the myriad of other OLLI activities, you're in for a treat!



Due to coronavirus, office hours are suspended indefinitely. If you have any questions at this time, please email or call 475-222-6232 or 475-222-6261
