  • First-year students new to UNH for spring semester
  • Students who are on a study away program from UNH who wish to file an Intent to Return to Housing

  • NSE (National Student Exchange) program students

  • International students transferring to UNH
  • Current on-campus residents who did not submit a Housing Reapplication

Offers for housing are made via email on a space-available basis.  Residence Hall housing is limited, so most offers of housing we make are into our on-campus apartments.   Be sure to submit an on-campus housing request, so that we know you want housing!

Housing Request FAQ

Offers of housing are made as space becomes available.  We hope to make a limited number of housing offers this fall as spaces occur.  Please be sure to complete the On-Campus Housing Request (button above), so that you won't miss out on the opportunity to be considered for on-campus placement.

Since this is an on-line application, you can log in anytime to the Housing Portal and see that the application is "live." 

If you feel that there was some problem or your need further assistance, you can email our offices at housing.office@unh.edu to ask for help.

If you have special circumstances that may need consideration, please use the notes area of your housing application. You may also send the information to housing.office@unh.edu.

Yes, we would appreciate hearing from you if you'd like to rescind your request. Please send an email to housing.office@unh.edu to let us know.

Our ability to make offers of housing depends on the number of vacancies after the housing processes for current residents and our incoming first-year students are completed. 

This year, due to our implementation low density in student housing for safeguarding against COVID-19,  we expect to make a limited number of offers of housing for Fall semester 2020.


We make offers of housing on a space-available basis.  As we identify available spaces, we turn to those students who have submitted an On-campus Housing Request.  We continue to make offers throughout the summer as spaces occur.  

We make housing offers via email.  If you receive an offer, the email will include information about how to officially accept the offer, (usually by simply replying to it), as well as information about the next steps.  If you accept our offer for a general space on-campus, your specific housing assignment and move-in information will come closer to the start of the semester.

No.  We will only contact you if we are able to make you an offer of housing.  You are more than welcome to call us (603) 862-2120 or email us  (housing.office@unh.edu) anytime to inquire about the status of your request.

We will try to accommodate your preference but we are not always able to do so. Any offers made will likely be into spaces in the on-campus undergraduate apartments.
