UNH Family Weekend 2019

2019 Family Weekend:  September 28th and 29th

Welcome to the UNH Family Weekend website.   We look forward to hosting our students and their friends and family for a weekend of fun activities.  Whether it's your first time visiting campus or you are returning, the planned events offer a great opportunity for families to tour the campus, participate in engaging activities, review student and staff demonstrations, meet other Wildcat families or take in a football game (UNH vs. Duquesne at 1:00 PM).

Your weekend can also include a pregame BBQ in the Touchdown Tents, as well as a relaxing breakfast on Sunday morning in the Service Credit Union Victory Club at Wildcat Stadium. 

It's the perfect time of year to visit our beautiful campus!   We hope to see you!
