University of New Hampshire at Manchester


Interim Dean: J. Michael Hickey
Associate Dean: Daniel W. Reagan


Welcome to the University of New Hampshire at Manchester—the university’s urban campus. Our mission is to offer a UNH education to commuter students in the greater Manchester and Merrimack Valley region. We offer students an affordable avenue for working toward a UNH degree, with smaller classes held at times that accommodate the schedules of students who are also working. Our core liberal arts courses provide a foundation for more applied science and technology majors, as well as traditional liberal arts majors.

At UNH Manchester, we capitalize on our location in the revitalized millyard of New Hampshire’s largest city. Our campus on the banks of the Merrimack River is a few blocks from the heart of the state’s financial and corporate center and home to many of the region’s non-profit and government offices. UNH Manchester is a vibrant university campus, and our programs prepare students for the opportunities of tomorrow in the region’s business, education, government, non-profit, service, and technology sectors.

UNH Manchester is uniquely equipped to support regional economic development. The campus creates an environment in which students, faculty, business/industry, government, and nonprofits collaborate on mutually beneficial projects and initiatives. As a community partner, we have a commitment to the region’s economic vitality, respond to educational and economic opportunities, and support innovation and student access to programs designed and delivered for the future.

If you are already one of our students, you have already experienced the excitement of the city and campus for yourself. If you are a prospective student, please contact us to arrange a visit to our campus to meet the great team of faculty and staff who are passionate in what they do to help our students succeed.



The University of New Hampshire at Manchester was established in 1985 as the sixth undergraduate college of the University of New Hampshire. The University of New Hampshire is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, which accredits schools and colleges in the six New England states. Accreditation by the association indicates that the institution has been carefully reviewed and found to meet or exceed standards agreed upon by nationally recognized educators.


The UNH Manchester faculty is its greatest asset. Residential faculty members have earned reputations for excellent teaching, scholarly achievement in their fields, and service to the community. They are recognized scholars and have acquired national and international reputations. Adjunct faculty members bring applied experience and a commitment to teaching to the classroom. Most importantly, UNH Manchester’s dedicated faculty members are outstanding teachers who care about each individual student. Faculty members work closely with students as advisers and help students define their goals, plan career objectives, and develop an individualized program of study within each major.
