UNH Pharmacy

The Health & Wellness pharmacy is centrally located and cost-effective.

Prescriptions and over-the-counter medications are available at competitive prices for students, faculty, staff, and dependents. Pharmacy staff are available to answer questions and provide guidance about your over-the-counter and prescription medications. Please call (603) 862-1094 or visit our main location at 4 Pettee Brook Lane, Durham, NH.

Payments may be made by cash, check, credit card (i.e., Visa, MasterCard or Discover), Cat’s Cache and flexible spending account (FSA) card. We participate with most major pharmacy plans.

Patients are welcome to use any pharmacy they prefer. 


Students and faculty/staff can fill prescriptions at Health & Wellness even if written by an outside (non-UNH) provider. We carry most generic and non-generic prescription medications. Call 603-862-1094 for details.

There are 4 ways to get a prescription filled at the pharmacy:

  • Bring your written prescriptions directly to us when we are open. 
  • Have your primary care provider call in your prescription to 603-862-1094.
  • Have your primary care provider fax your prescription to 603-862-3229.
  • Have your primary care provider submit an electronic script to: University of New Hampshire Pharmacy. 

Maintenance Medications


We are currently unable to provide new evaluations or requests for stimulant medication treatment for ADD/ADHD. Please speak to your primary care clinician for their assistance in continuing any prescribed medication prior to your arrival on campus. Although stimulant medication is a class II controlled substance, prescriptions may be prescribed electronically and across state lines by your clinician to our pharmacy.

Birth Control

Our clinicians are available to support you in beginning, or continuing, your choice of contraception. Available methods include birth control pills, intrauterine devices (IUD's), long acting implants under the skin (Nexplanon), and injections (Depo-provera). If you do not have a current prescription, please make an appointment with Health & Wellness. 

Emergency Contraception

A prescription may not be required for some emergency contraception (EC). Contact the pharmacy at 603-862-1094 for more information.

Over-the-Counter Medications

The pharmacy carries non-prescription items, sometimes at a savings of 40% less than local retailers.


Co-payments are due at the time of service. Payments may be made by cash, check, credit card (i.e., Visa, MasterCard or Discover), Cat’s Cache and flexible spending account (FSA) card.

Prescription Disposal

Let us help you properly dispose of prescription drug containers and unused prescription medications.

  • Remove the label or use a marker to black out any personal health information on the empty container prior to recycling.
  • Bring empty birth control packaging to the pharmacy when you pick up your refill so it can be reused.
  • Do not put unused or expired medications down the toilet or the sink. Dispose of medications the safe way.
