UNH Student Life and the entire UNH community are here to support students as they navigate remote learning and the changes to campus life that COVID-19 has spurred. We are committed to students’ academic success and well-being, and we know these times can cause uncertainty, doubt, and stress. We’ve put this resource list together so students have the tools and resources they need to do well academically and to take care of themselves. This guide has brief descriptions of on-campus and Student Life services, as well as 24-hour and emergency resources.
COVID-19 has introduced extra challenges to everyone at UNH, including faculty and staff. We know many are juggling job responsibilities, student well-being, family care, uncertainty, and sometimes illness, loss, and injustice, along with life's daily stresses. These challenges affect our mental, emotional and physical well-being in dramatic ways. If you're experiencing burnout, compassion fatigue, and/or "COVID fatigue," you're not alone.

To ease the transition from soldier to student, the office has social events, and helps you connect with other students, faculty and staff.
Typically, an advocate will accompany a survivor of sexual assault to the hospital for medical care after the assault (specifically for a rape kit). This generally happens one of two ways: The survivor calls the hotline and decides to go to the hospital, at which point the advocate would meet the client at the hospital or at a determined location. A survivor is at the hospital and discloses the abuse. The hospital is mandated to call the local crisis center for services which will prompt an advocate to come to the hospital. The client can then accept or refuse services.
An advocate can be made available to assist survivors in navigation of the legal process, whether that is criminal, civil or the University’s conduct system.
How To Access:
For immediate assistance, please call SHARPP's 24/7 helpline at 862-7233 or (888) 271-7233 or online at Ask an Advocate during normal business hours.
