If you are planning to bring family members, there are several important issues to consider:
♦ Please be aware that it can be very costly to support your dependents (estimate: $8,000 - $10,000 per dependent/per year).
♦ University Housing for families is limited.
♦ There is usually a waiting list for the Forest Park Apartment Complex.
♦ You will need to make housing arrangements prior to arrival.
♦ School-age children (ages 6 to 18) are required to attend school. You will need to provide their official birth certificates, school records, complete medical history and immunization records.
[IMPORTANT: See immunization requirements for NH Schools.]
♦ Childcare centers (for younger children or after-school care) are expensive and usually have a waiting list. It may not be possible to find a center to take care of your child immediately.
Medical Care and Insurance:
♦ As a condition of enrollment, ALL international students in F-1 status are required to purchase and enroll in UNH's Student Health Benefits Plan (SHBP).
♦ There are NO EXCEPTIONS to this university policy.
