7pm-9:30pm
UConn HEEP (Hillside Environmental Education Park) Red Trail, entrance behind IPB

Get into the Halloween spirit! The UConn Office of Sustainability (OS) has partnered with the UConn Residence Hall Association (RHA) to host the second annual Haunted HEEP Trail Event! Plunge into the shadows and join your fellow students on this march of mayhem through UConn's own haunted Hillside Environmental Education Park (HEEP) off Discovery Drive. The event will be catered by UConn Dining and we will serve cider, donuts, and other refreshments. There will be scary decorations and jump-scares by volunteers. The length of the trail walk is about 25 minutes. This event is open to UConn students only (both residential and non-residential). Student IDs will be checked upon arrival. Parking and entrance to the event will take place in the IPB parking lot off of Discovery Drive. There will also be shuttle buses running back and forth from the Student Union every 15 minutes, beginning at 6:45. We highly encourage registration in advance, as there is no guarantee of additional room for all walk-in students.
