UConnPIRG is a statewide, student-directed, and student-funded advocacy group in CT. We have a 40-year track record of standing up to powerful special interests and winning solid victories on campaigns to fight climate change, make college more affordable, and protect public health.

What makes us effective is students at UConn vote every 3 years to continue funding our advocacy work through a $5 per semester waivable fee. We pool these resources with our CONNPIRG Chapters across the state and hire our own professional staff like advocates, lawyers, and organizers. Between our work on campus and our advocates representing student concerns in Hartford and D.C., we win real results. Last year, our efforts to reduce the cost of textbooks for students paid off. We got a commitment from the university and passed legislation at the statewide level to promote free online textbooks that will save students hundreds of dollars. On top of that, we helped make Connecticut the first state to adopt a Student Bill of Rights that will protect students with college loans from unfair rip-offs. You may also know us from our voter registration efforts – we helped register 2,000 students in the 2018 elections and increased student turnout by over 90%!
