A Community of Communities

Wildcat Pride – it’s a feeling, a powerful sense of community built on shared core values. At UNH, you’ll experience a one-of-a-kind atmosphere, a truly welcoming and friendly environment where every student is given the encouragement and freedom to shine. There’s plenty to explore here – a beautiful campus, Division I athletics, community-themed living options – but the most important thing you’ll discover is you.

Through student-centered, co-curricular programs, services, resources, and partnerships, we strive to enrich students’ education and support their personal growth to reach their potential at UNH and in the future.
