Spring Valley Student Farm is home to 11 undergraduate students who live in two houses (of 4 and 7 student residents) on the farm. Each student contributes ten hours of farm chores per week, including weekly farm meetings. Students live and work together and treasure the family atmosphere of Spring Valley.

Many Spring Valley student farmers are deeply inspired by their experiences at the farm and develop lifelong passions and skills. We open applications whenever spaces become available, usually every semester.

Spring 2024 Housing at Spring Valley: Applications are not yet open for Spring 2024 housing. All full-time undergraduate UConn students are encouraged to apply. SVSF applicants are also required to separately submit the on-campus housing application through MyHousing to be eligible for housing at SVSF.

Summer Housing at Spring Valley: Applications for Summer 2023 are now open! Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until all spaces are filled. Summer housing at SVSF is open to all undergraduate students who are enrolled in summer classes or enrolled in Fall classes full time.
Please read our Summer Housing Fact sheet here and apply using the SVSF general application here.
