Welcome to the student section of the URC website. Here you will find information and resources needed to register and prepare for presenting at the URC.
The UNH URC is for all undergraduates, from all majors. The benefits for you as an undergraduate are many, such as:
- Developing a close, focused relationship with a faculty mentor.
- Participating in one of the largest undergraduate research conferences in the country, which is a great addition to your resume.
- Sharing your research with friends and family, in a professional conference setting.
First, talk with your faculty adviser about presenting at the URC. Next, review the information on this website and register your presentation.
You will need the following information to register:
- The title of your presentation.
- Your faculty mentor's name ("Adviser").
- The event(s) at which you will be presenting.
- Information for other presenters ("Student Presenters") including user name, major, class/rank and home town/home state.
- COLSA URC registrants ONLY: An abstract that does not exceed 1,500 characters.
If you have questions, please review the Student FAQs or contact the URC.
Preparing for the URC
Before you register
- Ensure all entry fields on the registration form are filled out completely: major, class/rank, home town/home state, event selection(s), adviser(s) and presentation co-author(s), if any (NOTE: ONLY ONE MEMBER OF A TEAM MUST REGISTER).
- Check the accuracy of all your registration information. This is important as it will be used in vital event communications, for email invitations to guests, and certain information you provide will be printed in the University-wide program.
- You may register for more than one URC event. Visit Event Descriptions for more details.
- For general registration questions, please contact the URC.

As your presentation day approaches
- Finish your presentation early.

- Arrive before the presentation starts with plenty of time to handle A/V concerns, etc.
- Have fun and enjoy presenting your work!
