Wildcats Care Resource List: Virtual Resources for Wildcat Wellness

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.

Age of Champions Annual Health Fair

Center on Aging and Community Living (CACL) is the educational license holder of the documentary Age of Champions. Faculty and Staff may request permission to borrow the film for educational purposes. Additionally, CACL and the Recreation Management and Policy Department organize an annual event around healthy aging. The event is open to UNH staff and faculty as well as the community. This event brings together vendors and activities focused on health, active aging. All ages are welcome because "It's Never too Soon to Age Well!" 

Community Living Guide

The guide is designed for individuals to communicate important information and preferences about themselves to people who may provide them services in the community. Covered topics include desired living situation and location, important person-specific preferences concerning caregiver qualities, personal care schedules, and the identification of personal and community relationships.

Military & Veteran Services Center

The Military and Veterans Services Office is located in Hood House, room G15. Office hours are 0800 to 1630 Monday through Friday. This office can help with general benefit questions, assistance in navigating the university and accessing services, support and advocate on issues important to vets, connect you with your Advisor, and suggest services that can aid you in decisions about majors and careers. To ease the transition from soldier to student, the office has social events, and helps you connect with other students, faculty and staff.

Through this program, we offer wellness education, fitness plans, functional skill development, community integration, successful transition to community life, resource and network development, individual and family recreation and peer advising.
