First Year

Residents haning out

Your first year at UNH offers an amazing opportunity to meet new people, starting with your roommates!  Most first-year roommates are randomly matched based on their answers to 7 lifestyle questions on the housing application.  Assignments are typically available in early July.  An email will be sent to your UNH account with instructions for looking up your assignment and roommate. We encourage you to contact your roommate to introduce yourself and to begin talking about things like who will bring what, who might like the top bunk and what you hope to get out of the roommate experience.  

We understand that some students have long established friendships and would like to request to live together.   Specific roommate requests are accepted until Friday, May 20th via the online housing application.  Roommate requests must be mutual. If the roommate request is confirmed to be mutual by May 20th, we will do our best to accommodate your request.

Complete the enrollment and housing/dining application by May 1.

The first-year enrollment and housing/dining application is available online through our housing module link below. You can also pay your enrollment and housing/dining fee there.  As long as you initially complete your application by the deadline of May 1, the application remains open to you for roommate edits/updates until May 20 and all other edits/updates until June 24! So feel free to rethink and reconsider your options until you are satisfied with your "Wildcat Country Home Away from Home" preferences.

Please follow the on-screen instructions to select your housing and dining preferences.
