Stoke Hall

Stoke Hall
Stoke Exterior

Stoke is the largest residence hall at UNH, located near the heart of campus, across from Peter T. Paul College, and a short walk to everything downtown has to offer. The community at Stoke is very diverse with the second and third floors housing predominately upper division students and floors five (5) to eight (8) housing first-year only communities. 

Stoke has an upgraded gaming lounge on the first floor featuring pool tables, ping pong tables, and gaming consoles. A newly updated study lounge is on the fifth floor. All floors have/offer a gender-inclusive restroom.

There are two resident assistants (RAs) on every floor so that residents have easy access to a staff member. There are also two professional Hall Directors in the building to work with students and RAs on a day-to-day basis. Together they develop and maintain a welcoming and healthy community for residents in which to thrive.

First-Year Only (Floor 5-8)

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!
