We all face unanticipated challenges during our lives. Sometimes these challenges for students include fundamental issues of food insecurity, housing and other financial concerns. UNH has multiple resources that can help.
The Inn Between is available to UNH students to pay for housing during Thanksgiving, Spring Break and January Term. UNH also provides emergency support for undergraduate and graduate students experiencing emergency housing loss. To apply for the Inn Between Fund or receive help with urgent housing loss, contact the Dean of Students at email@example.com.
Consider making a gift to the Inn Between Fund. Faculty and staff can also arrange a gift through a payroll deduction by contacting Business Services at (603) 862-2230.
