This is a list of towns in Connecticut. The U.S. state of Connecticut is divided into 169 towns, which are grouped into eight counties.

Towns traditionally have a town meeting form of government; under the Home Rule Act; however, towns are free to choose their own government structure. Nineteen of the towns in Connecticut are consolidated city-towns, and one (Naugatuck) is a consolidated borough-town.
