Athletics are an integral part of the UNH Wildcat experience. School spirit means cheering on UNH’s 18 Division 1 varsity athletic teams and 600+ student athletes. It also means choosing from a wide array of club and intramural sports to get involved on campus and form lasting friendships.

Tools to keep up with your teams, no matter where they're playing.
