Support Services Division

The Support Services Division of the UNH Police Department employs both professional and work-study Campus Service Officers (CSO). Each full-time officer attends the mandatory New Hampshire College and University Campus Security Academy. Along with this, both full and part-time officers attend various in-service training through out the year.

If you are a student and would like further information about working for Support Services you may stop by the University Police Department to pick-up an application.

Although, UNH Campus Service Officers do not have police authority, they work very closely with University Police Officers. All officers have direct communication with the UNH Communications Center that provides a connection to Police, Fire and Emergency Medical Units.

University Campus Service Officers are on duty to assist members of the University community. They provide authorized access to University buildings after hours, secure campus buildings, assist with room lock-outs as well as building security checks.

Security and Access to Campus Facilities

The University community is made up of a variety of facilities, primarily academic and administrative buildings and student residences. In the daytime, there is a majority of open access to academic and administrative offices, with the exception of recreation facilities which may require a membership. Academic and administrative offices are secured by members of the Support Services Division at the conclusion of their business hours.

Students and staff who have keys to buildings for after-hours work must lock the doors behind them after they enter and are encouraged to follow all safety precautions. Do NOT prop doors open and if you see a door propped after hours, close it. When doors to residence halls are locked, don't permit anyone other than your guest to enter the building. If you see a suspicious person in any University buildings you should contact the University Police Department at (603) 862-1427.

Security Escort Program


UNH Campus Service Officers provide a walking escort service free of charge to members and visitors of the University community.

Police and Security will perform escorts to and from on-campus locations upon request. Your first option, however, should be UNH Transportation Services at (603) 862-2328. Campus shuttles are typically scheduled to  operate daily until midnight; for routes and times, go to their website. In the event that the shuttle is not operating, Security will provide a walking escort to and from on-campus locations; call (603) 862-1427 to request this service.
