Submit OnLine Application

The On-Campus Waitlist DOES NOT roll-over from Fall to Spring.  

Beginning at 9:00 am on Wednesday, October 7,  you will be able to submit an 2016 Spring On-Campus Housing Request form.  We anticipate making offers of housing into our on-campus apartments, with some offers being made into our residence halls as well. 

See below for additional information regarding On-Campus Housing via the request form.


You must be an accepted full-time student (enrolled in 12 or more credits ) or be a full-time graduate student to receive an offer of housing. Graduate status is verified through the Graduate School.

Priorities are given to:

  • Medically re-admitted UNH students
  • 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.
  • International students transferring to UNH
  • UNH-Manchester students transferring to the Durham campus
  • Other transfer students coming to UNH directly from another college
  • Re-admitted UNH students.
  • UNH students living off-campus and current on-campus residents who did not submit an application by the deadlines.

Offers are made via email on a space available basis and most will be for spaces in on-campus apartment complexes (Woodside and The Gables). Spaces within the residence halls are expected to be extremely limited.


Housing Request FAQ

The 2015-2016 on-campus housing request form will be available both in our office and online beginning at 9:00am on Tuesday, March 3, 2015.  At that time please use the online submission form to quickly submit your request for on-campus housing.

You can confirm that your request has been received by contacting the Housing Department at (603) 862-2120 or at

If you have special circumstances that may need consideration, staff, please send the information to or fax it to our office at 603.862.3406.

There are two things that may improve your chances:

  • Submit your completed request as soon as possible after the process opens, even if you have not yet been accepted to UNH.
  • Stay flexible with your housing preferences.

We make as many offers as we can however our ability to do so depends on the number of vacancies after the housing processes for current residents are completed as well as on cancellations received after that time.  Space often becomes available between semesters if students decide not to return to UNH.

Spring semester is when the most housing is available.

We usually start making offers in April or May for fall housing, and in November for the spring semester. Because we receive last minute cancellations we sometimes make offers right up to the start of the semester; however there is no way to predict when our last round will be made.

We make housing offers via email.  If you receive an offer the email will include information about how to officially accept the offer as well as information about the next steps.  Specific housing assignments are not made until closer to the start of the semester.

No, you will only receive notification if we can make you an offer or if we have other housing information.

We will try to accommodate your preference but we are not always able to do so. Please note that offers are typically for spaces in the on-campus undergraduate apartments.
