Christensen Hall

  • Christensen hall

Located right next to Philbrook Dining Hall and our twin building Williamson Hall, it is only a few minutes’ walk from many academic buildings, making it a convenient place to call home. The UNH Math Center is located in our basement, and we have many spaces in the building to hang out and meet other first year students. Our first floor study lounge includes a fireplace that is perfect for s’mores, and our basement rec lounge is home to a 52” flat screen tv, pool table, ping pong table, foosball table, and a piano. We have athletic courts outside and a large outdoor space with picnic tables that’s perfect for studying or getting some fresh air when the weather is nice. Christensen is the best of both worlds offering a large community of more than 450 first year students, but also boasting small floor communities with only 25-35 individuals.

Meet the Hall Director

Beth Poling
When I started college I thought I was going to be a doctor, but my ambitions quickly changed once I got started in my program. What I really wanted out of a career was the opportunity not only to help others on a daily basis, but to help them see the potential in themselves.
