Storrs is a census-designated place and part of the town of Mansfield, Connecticut located in eastern Tolland County. The population was 10,996 at the 2000 census. It is dominated economically and demographically by the presence of the main campus of the University of Connecticut.
It was named after Charles & Augustus Storrs, two brothers who founded the University of Connecticut (originally called the Storrs Agricultural College) by giving the land (170 acres and $5,000 in 1871.
In the aftermath of September 2005's Hurricane Katrina, Storrs was named by Slate as "America's Best Place to Avoid Death Due to Natural Disaster.
The median income for a household in the community was $76,000 and the median income for a family was $64,833. Males had a median income of $34,766 versus $23,229 for females. The per capita income for the CDP was $9,947. About 10.0% of families and 33.5% of the population were below the poverty line, including 5.4% of those under age 18 and 8.2% of those age 65 or over. However, traditional measures of poverty can be highly misleading when applied to communities dominated by students, such as Storrs.
