Study in Bridgeport

All the information you need about studying in Bridgeport as an international student.

Why study in Bridgeport?

Bridgeport is the largest city in the northeastern US state of Connecticut. Originally a whaling port, Bridgeport became Connecticut’s industrial hub in the 19th and 20th centuries.

While some of this manufacturing infrastructure remains, the city is now best known for its 1,300 acres of green spaces, earning it the nickname Park City.

Bridgeport offers something for everyone, including elite sport, interesting museums, shoreline parks, and various music festivals and concerts. The city is home to a range of higher education institutions and high schools, making for a friendly and welcoming student population.

For those looking to do some exploring in between studying, Bridgeport is just a short drive or train journey away from the major American cities of New York and Boston. Thanks to its coastal location, you can easily hop aboard a ferry to the tourist hotspot of Long Island. If you need to travel a little further, LaGuardia, John F. Kennedy, and Bradley international airports are all within 70 miles.
