Proud to consistently be ranked one of the top 10 safest college campuses.
Every day at the University of New Hampshire, we put into practice our mission of student and community safety. That’s why we are consistently ranked one of the top 10 safest college campuses in the country. We are proud to be a nationwide leader on this important ranking because it defines our community.
Take a closer look at how we make it happen.
Finding help when you need it
UNH POLICE DEPARTMENT
Your partner, providing exceptional public safety services with respect, fairness, integrity, and transparency to ensure a safe learning environment and campus.
RAVE GUARDIAN AND USAFEUS APPS
Connect to UNH Police directly with RAVE Guardian or utilize the uSafeUS app to discreetly get help for you or to help a friend. Reach out anytime, in real time, straight from your smart phone.
BLUE LIGHT EMERGENCY TELEPHONES
Wherever you are on campus, there’s a Blue Light in sight. Activate the phone for a direct connection to UNH Police.
UNH Police walking escorts are available for all Wildcats anywhere on campus.
Available for all community members who want to sign up. While we don’t expect emergencies on our campus, we are prepared for all situations where knowledge and preparation can affect the outcome. One of those emergencies could be an active shooter situation. See our action plan here.
Safe Spaces and Inclusion
DIVERSITY, EQUITY, ACCESS & INCLUSION
We are defined by our culture of inclusion. Every day at UNH, we strive to confront bias and discrimination and build an environment that brings out the best in each of our students. This takes leadership and teamwork. Wildcat to Wildcat and staff member to staff member. Campus-wide.
