About the UConn Tartan

Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year UConn was founded - 1881 - with the geographic coordinates of its Storrs campus - 36.0010° N, 78.9380° W. 

The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using UConn's official primary colors - Navy Blue and Gray. UConn's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:

  • Light Blue for your heat for global engagement
  • White for your dedication to building academically sound minds
  • Red for your spirit of enhancing the well-being of your state
