University of Hartford and Building Beauty, located at the Sant’Anna Institute in Sorrento, Italy, Offers New Program for Architecture Students

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. ― Building Beauty is pleased to announce an agreement has been established with the Department of Architecture in the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA) at the University of Hartford in West Hartford, Connecticut USA. Third- and fourth-year students from the University of Hartford may attend the Building Beauty program in Sorrento to fulfill requirements for their Bachelor of Architectural Design + Technology degree. The collaboration with University of Hartford and Building Beauty continues to grow and both institutions look forward to expanding opportunities for students. This agreement signifies that partnerships can be developed between institutions to offer students a broader range of opportunities to study architecture and its role in society. This new program will forge a new path that incorporates the human experience of beauty in the way we create our world.

University of Hartford’s Department of Architecture Chair James E. Fuller, AIA NCARB, expresses his enthusiasm for the Building Beauty program, the opportunities it can provide students, and support of this growing relationship:

“Beauty activates and enlivens the soul. Engaging in conversation, design, and building around beauty – that which makes the world a better place – elevates us all. This is what the Building Beauty program is all about. We are thrilled to be able to provide our students with the opportunity to discover the beauty around them and within them through their experiences at Building Beauty.”


Spread across seven dynamic schools and colleges, the University of Hartford has been guiding the purpose and passion of students for over six decades. On our 350-acre campus alongside Connecticut’s capital city, approximately 5,000 undergraduate and 1,800 graduate students from 48 states and 46 countries come together for a common purpose: to collaborate across different disciplines, diversify perspectives, and broaden worldviews. We’re a four-year private university focused on advancing the public good through meaningful connections within our communities. Our unique approach to comprehensive education gives us the critical perspectives that lead to impactful change, regionally and beyond. With degree programs spanning the arts, humanities, business, engineering and technology, education, and health professions, we focus on doing the work that matters.
