Q. I won’t be on-campus the morning that the waitlist opens. How can I make sure my application gets to Housing?
A. The Fall Waitlist Application will be available both in our office and on the forms section of our website beginning at 9am on Monday, March 4. If you are unable to complete the form via our website or in person, please print a copy from our website and return it to us via fax at 603-862-3406, or by mail to 10 Academic Way, Durham, NH 03824. If you are able to scan your application, you may also e-mail it to us at email@example.com.
Q. I want to confirm that my waitlist application was received. Who do I contact?
A. You can confirm that your waitlist application has been received by contacting the Housing Department at (603) 862-2120 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q. I feel that I have special circumstances that need to be considered. How can I make sure that the Housing Department knows about them?
A. If you feel that you have special circumstances or that your application may need extra consideration by our staff, please feel free to submit any additional information or documents that you feel are necessary to inform us of your situation. Please send additional info to email@example.com or fax it to our office at 603.862.3406.
Q. How do I improve my chances of getting an offer of housing?
A. Though our offers are made based on a priority system, there are two things you can do to help improve your chances of receiving an offer: submit your completed application to our office as soon as possible after the waitlist opens and stay flexible with your housing preferences.
Q. How do I learn more about the apartments and residence halls?
Q. I am planning to transfer to UNH but haven’t been accepted yet. Do I have to wait to submit my Waitlist Application?
A. No! If you are interested in being considered for on-campus housing we encourage you to submit an application as early as possible after the waitlist opens.
Q. Can I remove my name from the Housing Waitlist if I find alternate housing?
A. Yes, if you have found housing off-campus and no longer wish to be contacted, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to have your name removed from our waitlist.
Q. Where on the waitlist am I? What are my chances of being offered housing?
A. It is difficult to predict a student’s chances of receiving housing. Within each priority level, offers are made according to the date and time that the application was received in our office. Please take a moment to look over the priority list to help you get a general idea of which priority group you fall into. The priorities are as follows
#1) Medically re-admitted UNH students;
#2) Exchange students from other institutions and returning UNH students who lived on-campus immediately prior to participating in UNH sponsored programs at other institutions in the U.S. and abroad;
#3) International students transferring to UNH;
#4) UNH-Manchester students transferring to the UNH-Durham campus;
#5) Other transfer students coming to UNH directly from another college;
#6) Re-admitted UNH students;
#7) UNH students living off-campus and current on-campus residents who did not submit an application or deposit by the published deadlines.
Division of Continuing Education students may be eligible for an exception to the housing eligibility policy when space is available.
Q. How many offers will you be able to make?
A. The number of offers that we are able to make is based on the number of vacancies available after our housing processes as well as on housing cancellations that come in after that time. Spaces often become available between semesters as well, as students sometimes decide not to return to UNH and no longer require housing. Spring semester is typically a very good time to come in to on-campus housing from our waitlist.
Q. When will housing offers be made?
A. We are typically able to begin making housing offers in June from the semester I waitlist, and in December from the semester II waitlist. Because we receive last minute cancellations we are often able to make housing offers right up to the start of the semester; however there is no way to predict when our last round of offers will be made.
Q. How will I know if I have been offered housing?
A. If we are able to make you an offer of housing, you will receive an e-mail from our office giving you specifics on whether you will be accommodated in the on-campus apartments or the residence halls, as well as how to officially accept your offer. You will not receive your official assignment until closer to the start of the semester.
Q. Will I hear from Housing if I am not made an offer?
A. No, you will only receive notification from us when you are being made an offer or if we have other information to share with you with regards to UNH Housing and the waitlist.
Q. Do I get to choose where I am assigned?
A. If you have a preference of where you would like to be placed, we’d love to hear about it and will do our best to accommodate you. Because our vacancies come from students who have decided not to return to housing, we are not always able to assign you to a space that matches your preferences. Please note that offers to students on the waitlist are typically to spaces in the on-campus undergraduate apartments.
Q. Does my waitlist application carry over from one semester to the other?
A. No, your application does not carry over from one semester to another. If you wish to remain on the housing waitlist for more than one semester, you MUST submit a new application for the following semester’s waitlist.
Q. I have a question about the waitlist that hasn’t been answered on the Waitlist Info Page or the FAQ page. Who should I contact?
A. Please feel free to e-mail any additional questions to email@example.com
