How to register / purchase tickets

Registration for Family Weekend will launch the week of August 5th.

Registration includes ticket sales for our Post-Game Dinner and Pancake Breakfast. If you are not interested in purchasing tickets to either of those events, we still encourage you to register as it allows us to communicate with you about the Family Weekend schedule and enters you into our Family Weekend giveaway.

Important note- Tickets for UNH’s Football Game and Tailgate Parking are not part of the Family Weekend Registration and must be purchased through UNH Athletics. Football tickets and tailgating sell out quickly, so get your tickets now.
