In addition to tutoring available through the library's Q Center, the UConn Chemistry Department supports various additional tutoring options.

TA Tutoring Room: Students seeking additional academic support in CHEM 1122, 1124Q, 1126Q, 1127Q, 1128Q, or 2241 can find Teaching Assistants on duty in CHEM A-301 weekdays, 9:00AM - 5:00PM. This service is free to all chemistry students at UConn.

Chemistry Club Tutoring: Members of UConn's Chemistry Club offer free tutoring every Wednesday at 7:00PM in CHEM A-203.

Private Tutors: Students seeking a private tutor can find a list of approved tutors through the Chemistry Department's Main Office (CHEM A-100). These tutors work as paid tutors, and all arrangements are made directly between the student and the prospective tutor.

The UConn Chemistry Club is an official student affiliation of the American Chemical Society. Every Wednesday, we get together to do a fun experiment and talk about chemistry in the news. We then go on to give short presentations on anything from how to do research at UConn, landing a job in today's industry, or whatever topics come to us. It's a club for anyone who enjoys chemistry, not just chemistry majors, and it's totally free to join. We also offer free tutoring in chemistry, math, physics, CHEG, or whatever our officers know about immediately after our general body meetings. So come to CHEM A203 on Wednesdays at 6:00PM, or for tutoring at 7:00PM! For more updates, you can Like us on Facebook or contact and ask to be put on our weekly mailing list.

UConn's undergraduate students are given the opportunity to engage in chemistry research during their academic career.

Through independent research courses and the URAP Program, students are able to conduct research in the laboratories of Chemistry faculty mentors. Also, awards are available to support summer research and innovative research projects. Students may also broaden their experiences through research at an REU institution or through research abroad.

The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) is also a resource for all undergraduates seeking to enrich their undergraduate experiences through participation in research, scholarship, and creative activity.
