Welcome to the University of New Hampshire campus. The safety and well being of our students, faculty, staff and visitors is always our primary concern.
We encourage you to explore all information regarding services of our department such as campus advisories and alerts, crime statistics, crime prevention, victim/witness advocacy, personal safety, escort service, and how to report an emergency situation or other calls for service. Through programs of education, information, active police and security presence, we can accomplish our goal of supporting everyone in their educational pursuit in a community that is conducive to the true spirit of learning.
