Whittemore Center Arena

Whittemore Center Arena

Thrilling UNH Wildcat games are played right here at the ice arena in the Whittemore Center. But athletics aren't the only events that play here to sold-out audiences. With a capacity of 6501, the arena has also hosted concerts with Bob Dylan, Dave Matthews, and Tim McGraw, as well as Broadway performances of Cats and Jesus Christ Superstar. 'The Whitt' is the venue of choice for large University events such as UNH presidential inaugurations, capital campaign celebrations, honors convocation, and other academic ceremonies.
