Welcome to UNH!

New Student Programs provides orientation and transition programs for new students and their families. These programs are intended to serve as introductions to the university, its expectations, and its resources. Attending Orientation and Wildcat Days will assist in laying the foundation for your experience as a Wildcat at the University of New Hampshire.


Join us for New Student Orientation.

Registration for New Student Orientation programs in June for first-year, transfers, and parents/families is now open for all deposited students, one business day after your deposit has processed. Please check your email for a custom link to register.

Mobility Accommodations: The Wildcat Access Van will be available during June Orientation for first-year and transfer students along with any guests of students. For eligibility and information on how to schedule rides, contact New Student Programs at new.student@unh.edu
