NEWS

Priority snow route plan

UNH Facilities has identified two (2) priority snow/ice removal routes (view map here). These routes will be maintained hourly. They include sidewalks, building entrances and Access Van pick-up/drop-off points. Students should make note of these routes as they may differ from usual ones used.

Other sidewalks/areas will continue to be cleared as well, however, they will be cleared less regularly than the “priority routes." Please be aware of balance, equipment and other factors that may be affected by snow and ice.

Educational apps for students

Disability Services for Students (DSS) has created a list of Free and Low-Cost iOS and Android Apps and tools to assist students with reading, writing, note-taking, study-skills/organization and brainstorming activities.
