Involvement & Leadership

The Office of Student Involvement & Leadership (OSIL) is the nucleus for student involvement at UNH. Working collaboratively with the MUB, the Office of Student Involvement & Leadership provides 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.

Primarily comprised of Commuter & Non-Traditional Student Services, Fraternity & Sorority Life, Leadership Programs, Student Activity Fee Office, and Student Organizations, the OSIL is on the first floor of the Memorial Union Building in Room 114 (across the hallway from the Student Governance Association offices, next to the bridge on the south side of the building).

The OSIL is accessible as lounge and collaborative work space whenever the MUB is open. During the academic year, the OSIL is staffed by student and/or professional staff. To reach the OSIL by phone please call (603) 862-0303.

Create Your Own Story

The University of New Hampshire wants to highlight student success stories. One way of doing this has been through the Create Your Own Story initiative which features students who, in their own way, have strived to make the most of their time at UNH. Each of their stories are different, yet they all share a common theme - a deep desire to claim their education.
