First Year

Welcome to your first step of #LivingInWildcatCountry!


Residents haning out

Your first year at UNH offers an amazing opportunity to meet new people, starting with your roommates!  Most first-year roommates are randomly matched based on their answers to 7 lifestyle questions on the housing application.  Assignments are typically available in early July.  An email will be sent to your UNH account with instructions for looking up your assignment and roommate. We encourage you to contact your roommate to introduce yourself and to begin talking about things like who will bring what, who might like the top bunk and what you hope to get out of the roommate experience.  

We understand that some students have long established friendships and would like to request to live together.   Specific roommate requests are accepted until Friday, May 18th via the online housing application.  Roommate requests must be mutual. If the roommate request is confirmed to be mutual by May 18th, we will do our best to accommodate your request. Other options, such as meal plans, are available for update until the day after the last First Year Orientation session in June (TBD).

Complete the enrollment and housing/dining application by May 1.
