Best thing about UCONN - besides the Women's Basketball

Full disclosure - I went to UCONN way back when and fell in love with their ice cream then. I have watched the Dairy Bar go from literally a little hole in the wall to the facility they have now. Great ice cream, generous servings and reasonable prices. You know a place is good when it's... read more

Perhaps I should not write a review without having tasted the ice cream, which is undoubtedly very good. However, I would like to warn potential customers that they may have to wait in line for a while. We arrived on an admittedly unusually warm spring day and, after finding a parking space with difficulty, found a line of at least... More

What is it - They are trying to teach the Students about producing ice cream, which they really excel out - No question the Ice Cream is first rate. But they should get the school of business involved when it comes to running a retail service. They were busy - You had to wait - Yup - But never call... More

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
