The Senate, led by Allison Villano, is responsible for authoring legislation and carrying out initiatives aimed at addressing concerns of the student body.

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.
