As the university community prepares to begin a new academic year, it is time for student “move-in “days Friday, August 23rd through Sunday, August 25th.
You will find additional parking and transportation information below concerning Gables & Woodside’s apartments move-in on Saturday August 24th and returning students move-in on Sunday August 25th. Please go to https://www.unh.edu/housing/ for move-in information.
Most of the campus core parking lots will be “CLOSED” for staging to support move-in operations. If you commute to campus on any of these days, please be aware of conditions that may impact travel and parking (and that could result in cars being towed if they are left in lots that are designated as “closed”). Please anticipate and be prepared for last-minute changes and additional directions from the UNH Police who will be supervising parking and traffic during move-in.
I apologize for any inconvenience that the move-in process might cause you. I greatly appreciate your continued efforts and support to welcome our students and their families to campus in true Wildcat fashion.
