Great Ice Cream

Long lines on the college campus are worth it. They move quickly. They do need more seating but only because they are so good - don't miss this stop for an ice cream treat that simply the best

The quality of this ice-cream is outstanding - very rich and tasty. It is made right on the campus of the University of Connecticut. The servings are very large and the price is extremely reasonable. A great place for bringing guests as you show them around the beautiful UConn campus, or a place to have a treat following a performance... More

They make their own ice cream with cream from their own cows. What more is there to say! The interior is a bit shabby but the ice cream is first class all the way... We love this place.

UConn Dairy Bar is a must visit for ice cream fans! They have a lot of flavors, some of which are quite peculiar (maple syrup and walnuts, or pumpkin for instance). Price are really cheap and even the small cup is huge! If you aren't particularly hungry, the small-sized cup will probably totally fulfill you.

Huge portions! And the prices are relatively low, you definitely get your moneys worth. Ice cream is so rich and creamy, some of the best that I have ever had! Can't go wrong with any flavor. Comes straight from the cows that you can see grazing out back on horsebarn hill

Wonderful ambiance on the UConn campus - great for people watching. Picnic tables outside, and plenty of seating inside...and some of the best ice cream around! Try the 'Husky Tracks'! :)

We live about a 1/2 hour away and find every possible excuse to come here. The Jonathan ice cream and the peach ice cream are UNbelievable. Portions are huge! It is our favorite ice dream shop.

I have been a fan of the UCONN Dairy Bar since first going there as a child in the early 1950s. The hot fudge sundaes and the selection of flavors and products have only gotten better at the new facility that replace the old institutional creamery. It's now a favorite of my children and grandchildren.

I've heard about the great ice cream here for years. Well, we finally tried it for ourselves and it was delicious! We tried three different flavors and all were excellent. The ice cream seems to be very reasonably priced compared to a lot of places. We will definitely come back as soon as we are in the area.
