Take a Tour ....

  • Start at the lively Town Square where you'll find a wide lawn and neat walkways bordered by shops, outdoor cafés, offices, and a range of apartment types—all a short walk away from the University of Connecticut.

  • Market Square is conveniently located across from Mansfield Town Hall. The neighborhood is designed to meet daily needs of Mansfield residents and the UConn community. Of great excitement is a new Price Chopper grocery store located within easy walking distance.

  • The more intimate Village Street neighborhood serves as a transition between the Town and Market Square areas. Here you'll find smaller-scaled buildings with outdoor cafés and quaint shops lining the wide, landscaped sidewalks.

  • The Residential Neighborhood will contain quiet streets lined with mid-rise flats and classic townhomes. In keeping with the latest sustainability practices, development is focused on a compact area, leaving tall trees and small streams along the periphery. Close, convenient, and complete.

  • The community comes together for events such as the Festival on the Green and Winter Fun Day. The town's proximity to the University of Connecticut means it's easy to catch a performance, take in a conference game, or even take a class. See what's happening in town or at UConn.


Storrs Center is a year-round destination for shopping, dining, and celebrating thanks to plentiful parking, walkable streets, and a diverse range of businesses.
