Beginning July 1, 2021, the University partnered with DATTCO as its exclusive motorcoach transportation provider.
As we move through the Fall semester, we encourage any groups on campus looking to book motor coach travel to do so as far in advance as possible, preferably as many as 45-60 days in advance. Any bookings done inside of 30 days to travel can present significant operational challenges.
To book motor coach bus transportation with DATTCO, please visit https://uconnquotes.dattco.com/ to obtain a quote. Once the quote is received, process a requisition using the Goods and Services form in HuskyBuy and attach the quote along with the business purpose for the trip. Continue reading

AirGas, UConn’s primary contracted supplier, has announced a national shortage of liquid helium. As such, AirGas has reduced the allocation of helium to the university, and has increased the price by 30%. Given current research needs, the new allocation will not meet the university’s demand. Despite challenges, Purchasing is working diligently to ensure UConn’s need is met. AirGas has offered to inspect installations and provide recommendations on conservation and loss-reduction. We will provide further updates as supply becomes readily available. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
