There are a total of five libraries available to UNH students including the Dimond Library (e.g. humanities, social sciences, business, health sciences, human services, education, and earth sciences); Biological Sciences Library; Physics Library; Engineering, Math, and Computer Sciences Library; and the Chemistry Library.
The Connors Writing Center is a place where all members of the UNH community—students, faculty, and staff—are welcome to discuss their writing with trained writing assistants. Writing assistants come from many academic backgrounds and work with students on all forms of writing during any stage in the writing process. They are undergraduate and graduate students at UNH who are passionate about writing and who love discussing writing with others.
CFAR also offers graduate school preparation workshops to undergraduate UNH students. Workshops include GRE preparation (verbal, math, and general expectations of the GRE) and Personal Statement Writing.
The Hamel Center for Undergraduate Research provides resources and financial support for the research, scholarly, and creative projects of UNH students. One-hundred percent of the funding for research awards and fellowships comes from donor gifts.
Established in 2005, the Office of National Fellowships provides information, counsel, and editorial support to high achieving students applying for national and international fellowships and scholarships. The services of the Fellowships Office are available to undergraduates, graduate students, and alumni of the University. The Office also assists faculty members who serve as mentors/references, and coordinates campus interviews and nominations. The Office has worked with numerous successful students, including multiple Fulbright Scholarship recipients, Udall Scholars, Truman Scholars, and Barry Goldwater scholarship winners.
IROP grants are competitive awards supporting qualified projects in diverse settings: universities, government agencies, museums, archives, art galleries, archeological and historical sites, research libraries, laboratories, and field sites. By working closely with a UNH mentor, students identify potential research sites and foreign mentors, and address issues of cross-cultural preparation.
The Undergraduate Research Conference (URC) is a celebration of academic excellence at the University of New Hampshire. Over 1,300 UNH undergraduate students, from all academic disciplines, will present at the URC. McNair Scholars present their research every year at the URC. All Pre-McNair and McNair Scholars who are not scheduled to present are strongly encouraged to attend to show support and learn more about the exciting work of their peers.
PACS is the primary mental health facility on campus. PACS offers a variety of services that are designed to enhance students' ability to fully benefit from the University environment and academic experience. This includes providing counseling and therapy for students who may be experiencing situational or ongoing psychological difficulties, providing programming to meet the developmental needs of the student population, and encouraging a University atmosphere conducive to personal and intellectual growth and psychological well-being. PACS is fully funded by student fees, and clinical services are available to all students who have paid the Health Services/ Counseling fee.
Memorial Union & Student Activities is the nucleus for student involvement at UNH. Working collaboratively with the MUB, Student Organizations provide programs, resources and opportunities that promote student involvement in ways that positively affect the learning, growth, and development of each student, while enhancing the quality of life at UNH and the greater community.
The Beauregard Center creates opportunities for people to participate in an inclusive community and to explore and understand diversity, injustice and equity. Their work is grounded in understanding diversity that includes people of all abilities, ages and ethnicities, genders, nationalities, races, religions/spiritual traditions, socio-economic classes and sexual orientations. Providing support and development for African American/Black, Latina/o, Native American and Asian/Pacific Islanders, as well as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning students is at the heart of their work.
