Christensen Hall

Christensen Hall
Christensen Hall

Located right next to Philbrook Dining Hall and our twin building Williamson Hall, it is minutes away from many academic buildings, making it a convenient place to call home. The UNH Math Center is located in our basement, and we have many spaces in the building to hang out and meet other first year students. Our first floor study lounge includes a fireplace, a basement rec lounge with a 52” TV, pool table, ping pong table, foosball table, and a piano. We have athletic courts outside and a large outdoor space with picnic tables that’s perfect for studying or getting some fresh air. We are the best of both worlds offering a large community, but have small floor communities (25-35 residents).

First Year Students Only

Residence halls with all first-year communities have an environment that is supportive and safe for first-year students transitioning into college. Everyone is going through similar struggles, asking similar questions and our staff is available to build community, connect them to campus resources, and help them make the most of their first year of college! Many of these students are taking similar classes as well. Living here gives students the convenience of forming study groups, meeting lots of first-year students, and attending many community building events and hall discussions geared to their specific needs as new wildcats!
