DURHAM, N.H.—In recognition of the unique challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of New Hampshire has extended the enrollment and housing deadline for prospective students from May 1 to June 1, 2020.

“We know families across our state and country are discussing college futures,” said Pelema Ellis, vice provost of enrollment management at UNH. “The decision to come to UNH is about so much more than where you’ll spend the next four years. It’s a conversation with your loved ones on a number of priorities—from location to community, affordability to opportunities. While we cannot change today’s global realities, we can give you the time to make this decision with confidence.”

Because the university is unable to host in-person events on campus for admitted students a variety of virtual experiences are being offered for admitted students and their parents.

  • Visual content including photo and video experiences
  • Opportunities to learn more about UNH from academics to housing and dining, facilitated by campus representatives
  • Interactive options to connect with university staff and students, utilizing several easy-to-use and accessible technologies
  • Multiple offices facilitating Q&As with students and parents
