UNH Pharmacy

UNH Pharmacy


Our pharmacy staff is available to answer questions and provide guidance about your over-the-counter and prescription medications. Many prescriptions written for acute needs by clinicians at Health & Wellness may be filled for $5.00 without using your insurance pharmacy benefit. Others are chargeable. Your clinician will advise you about your medication’s cost.

Please note that you are welcome to use whichever pharmacy you prefer and are not required to use the Health & Wellness pharmacy.


Students who are interested in filling prescriptions from home should call 603-862-1094 to talk with pharmacy staff to find out if the pharmacy stocks the medication and its cost to fill. There are three 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.

If you’re filling a prescription on the day of your appointment, it will be ready within about 15 minutes. If you’re getting a refill transferred from another pharmacy, it will be ready within 24 hours.

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 or another local pharmacy.

Birth Control

If you do not have a current prescription, we will need the records from your most recent exam. If you don’t have this information, please make an appointment with Health & Wellness so we can ensure you receive continuity of care prior to taking ongoing medication.

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 also offers non-prescription items, sometimes at a savings of 40% less than local retailers.


Payments are due at the time of service. We’re unable to accept pharmacy insurance plans, with the exception of the UNH Student Health Benefits Plan. Many prescriptions written for acute needs by clinicians at Health & Wellness may be filled for $5.00 without using your insurance pharmacy benefit. 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, it may be reused.
  • Do not put unused or expired medications down the toilet or the sink. Dispose of medications the safe way.
