Spring 2018 On-Campus Housing Request is open.

Submit OnLine Application

See below for additional information regarding On-Campus Housing via the request form. If you have any issues accessing the Housing Portal via the above link, please contact the Housing Office at (603) 862-2120. Our staff will be able to troubleshoot your housing portal system permissions.


You must be an accepted full-time student (enrolled in 12 or more credits ) or be a full-time graduate student to receive an offer of housing. Graduate status is verified through the Graduate School.

Students in any of the below categories are eligible to submit a housing request.

  • Medically re-admitted UNH students
  • Students who are on a study away program from UNH who wish to file an Intent to Return to Housing
  • Exchange students from other institutions
  • NSE (National Student Exchange) program students
  • UNH-Manchester and New Hampshire Transfer Connections Program (NHTCP) students transferring to the Durham campus
  • Other transfer students coming to UNH directly from another college
  • Re-admitted UNH students
  • International students transferring to UNH
  • Current on-campus residents who did not submit a Housing Reapplication
  • UNH students living off-campus

Offers are made via email on a space-available basis and most will be for spaces in on-campus apartment complexes (Woodside and The Gables). Limited spaces within the residence halls may also be available.

Any applicant who is ultimately assigned to a space at the on-campus apartments or Babcock Hall may not later be reassigned to, or choose a space in, the undergraduate residence hall system unless granted an exception by the Department of Housing.


Housing Request FAQ

That's fine!  The form is an on-line submission!  Just login using your UNH credentials and submit the form wherever you are.

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 to ask for help.

If you have special circumstances that may need consideration, staff, please send the information to or fax it to our office at 603.862.3406.

There are two things that may improve your chances:

  • Submit your completed request as soon as possible after the process opens once you've been accepted and activated your MyUNH account.
  • Stay flexible with your housing preferences.

We make as many offers as we can however our ability to do so depends on the number of vacancies after the housing processes for current residents are completed as well as on cancellations received after that time.  Space often becomes available between semesters if students decide not to return to UNH.

Spring semester is when the most housing is available.

We usually start making offers in May and throughout the summer for fall housing, and in December and January for the spring semester. Because we receive last minute cancellations we sometimes make offers right up to the start of the semester; however there is no way to predict when our last round will be made.

We make housing offers via email.  If you receive an offer the email will include information about how to officially accept the offer as well as information about the next steps.  Specific housing assignments are not made until closer to the start of the semester.

No, you will only receive notification if we can make you an offer or if we have other housing information.

We will try to accommodate your preference but we are not always able to do so. Please note that offers are typically for spaces in the on-campus undergraduate apartments.
