The Legislative Branch of Student government is the Student Senate. The purpose of the Senate is to represent the views and ideas of the 19,000+ students here at the University of Connecticut.

The Senate is composed of over 57 senators, each serving a one-year term. Every student at UConn is represented by multiple senators. The Residential and Commuter represent students by their geographic living areas on or off campus. The Academic senators represent academic colleges. Residential and Commuter seats are elected each fall, and academic seats are elected each Spring. Additionally, there are also Multicultural and Diversity Senators that are elected at large.

Senate meetings are held every other Wednesday evening virtually at 6:30 pm. All meetings are open to the public. Students are encouraged to attend, and may express concerns during Public Comment. If you wish to speak during public comment, please email the Speaker at time is specifically designed as an open forum for students to address the senators who represent them, or to speak to the body as a whole. Administrators and other public university officials are encouraged to attend Senate when decisions by their departments will affect students.
