Your Graduate Housing Options
Welcome to the UNH community! The Department of Housing has two on-campus housing options for you to consider.
One is Babcock Hall, a traditional residence hall for graduate or non-traditional students. Each resident lives in a single room furnished with a bed, mattress, desk, desk chair, and built-in dresser and closet. Each floor has a community bathroom and kitchen. Residents have the option of purchasing various meal plans from our on-campus dining halls. Babcock is a place where people from many countries and cultures come together to form a lively and scholarly atmosphere. The floor lounges, ping pong room, volleyball court and fireplace lounge are all frequent gathering places for the residents.
A second choice available to those who are arriving with families (married, civil unions, or those with dependent children) is Forest Park, our family housing complex on campus. Forest Park has a variety of apartment options including studios, and one or two bedroom units. Maximum occupancy for any family is 5 people in a two bedroom apartment. While Forest Park was designed for families, single graduate students may be considered for studio apartments when no families on the list are available to move in. Residents gather in the community center for monthly dinners and events such as BBQ’s workshops and tenant committee meetings. The location is just steps away from many academic buildings and is within 10 minutes of all major campus buildings and downtown Durham.
Our residence halls rates and Forest Park rents are reasonable compared to the local housing market rates and include all utilities. At the Family Housing Complex, each apartment receives a reserved on-campus parking space while Babcock parking is in a near-by parking lot.
