Transfer Community

Welcome to the University of New Hampshire! The staff at the Woodside Apartments are so excited to have you, our new transfer student, join us for your first year at UNH! We know that there are a lot of challenges with being a transfer student, so our aim is to make your transition as smooth and enjoyable as possible. Before you know it, you’ll feel right at home here on campus.

As a community that focuses on transfer students, we strive to make the most of your first time at UNH by providing you with the tools and guidance necessary to succeed. We know this isn’t your first time in a college setting, but understand some of the issues that may arise for you as a new student on our campus. Therefore we’ve designed a curriculum that connects you with staff, students, and services all over campus. You’re a unique student, so you deserve to be part of a unique program.
