UB is located just off Bridgeport in Connecticut. Frankly, considering the small campus, one has to step out of campus in UB and there is nothing much to do outside campus too. So the location, although urban, is pretty boring. There is a beach right next to the college where students generally chill. Even the locality is infamous for robberies and evening brawls and this makes students hesitant to step out of their premises in the evening. Thus the bad news is that overall, an urban campus with facilities isn’t that great but the good news is that NYC is just an hour’s drive from Bridgeport.
UB has a really small campus and considering that, the facilities are just fine. They have everything in place but nothing is extravagant. You get the perks of studying right next to the sea shore but apart from that there is nothing worth travelling from India to US.
In campus residing for freshers is often an aching experience. Infrastructure wise a few problems keep arising though the administration is kind to address the problems. Dorms are smaller than those usually allotted in other places, especially for the fresher’s.
Off campus housing is highly preferred by students even though it might be marginally expensive particularly because the facilities are better. Apartments near the campus premises are available and of course, food options outside campus are better than those in campus.
The weather in Bridgeport is humid. There is a short winter when its snows and the city comes to a standstill while in summer will not be difficult for us Indians as temperatures never cross 32 degree Celsius. Overall, weather isn’t that bad and can really be managed if the college is an option.
Well, UB has decent faculty as such, but would you go all the way to the US for just decent faculty? There are great teachers and also those whom you will despise. The professors are helpful though and will guide you on your work. If you are reading in Bridgeport or planning to enrol there, make sure you make an all out effort by yourself to do well.
The pedagogy too is decent and not extraordinary or overwhelming. It is rewarding on personal effort but by itself the University has a little less to offer. Workload isn’t much and a chilled out schedule will steer you clear.
It is simply very easy to get a deduction on the already less expensive tuition fee at UB. The University offers scholarships with varied amount of waivers depending on test scores, merit and not essentially need based.
Don’t expect much help from the University at the time of graduation. You will have to make way for yourself to secure a job. The alumni network is not as strong as other top schools and also, the prospects of securing a standard job is also not great in UB.

There are those colleges which however bad turn out to be better than the average Indian colleges, University of Bridgeport is one of them. If you want to experience studying abroad and you are ready to shell out the reasonably less tuition fee here, go for the grabs!
