about icon About

The University of Bridgeport (UB or UBPT) is a nonprofit private university in Bridgeport, Connecticut. The university is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education. In 2021, the university was purchased by Goodwin University; it retained its own name, brand, and board of trustees. 

Founded originally as the Junior College of Connecticut, it is the only university in Bridgeport and one of the largest in Connecticut. The university offers more than 60-degree programs to over 5,000 students at the bachelor's, master's, and doctoral levels. This includes the only naturopathy and Chinese medicine programs in Connecticut, one of two, along with University of Connecticut, medical laboratory sciences programs in Connecticut, and the only chiropractic school on the East Coast. 

E. Everett Cortright, Alfred Fones, and former Raybestos President Sumner Simpson opened the Junior College of Connecticut, the first of its kind in the Northeastern United States. The school purchased the former P. T. Barnum estate and neighbouring property adjacent to Seaside Park and became a four-year institution in 1947, when it was renamed the University of Bridgeport.
