About Us

Mortar board reading Thanks Mom and Dad

Since 1976 the UNH Parents Association has been dedicated to developing and maintaining connections between parents, students and the UNH community. In addition to running Family Weekend we also have a Parents Council which oversees a grant program for student projects.

Our mission

To provide meaningful services to parents and keep parents informed about opportunities and challenges for their students while they are at UNH. As a parent or a guardian of a UNH student, you are automatically a member.

Connected and informed parents can make a huge difference in the success of their students.
