  Items with special notes:
   

Microwaves - Microwaves rated with a power output of 800 watts or less are allowed in student rooms. Microwaves can either be a stand alone unit or a part of a microwave-refrigerator combination unit.

Refrigerators that less than 35" and that draw no more than 1.5 amps of power are also permitted. For sustainability purposes, we suggest one refigerator per two students. Please see the Room and Board Agreement for more information.

 

   

All halls have extra long mattresses (36 x 80"). For more information about bed size and mattress information please visit the Housing website.

 

   

Bikes – Many students bring their own bikes to campus. While some halls have indoor bike rooms where students can lock up their bikes, other halls do not have the space for that type of facility. All halls have outdoor bike racks provided. Please click here to see a chart to help you determine what type of storage is available for your bike.

Mailing Information

Residents of the undergraduate residence halls are given a mailbox in the Memorial Union Building at the Granite Square Station (GSS). Box numbers can be obtained by logging in to your Blackboard account and clicking on the Webcat/Student Services tab. Access Webcat via their linked button and then click on the "View UNH Durham Granite Square Station (GSS) Mailbox Address" link. Residents of The Gables, Woodside Apartments, Forest Park Apartments and Babcock Hall receive their mail in their respective areas, and will receive their mailing information at check-in.

Internet Connections

All UNH residence facilities are wi-fi capable. Additionally, all UNH rooms have wired high-speed internet access via the Campus Residential Network (ResNet). Per UNH's Acceptable Use Policy, networking equipment (routers, hubs, etc) cannot be connected to the campus network. For more information on direct computer connections (and specific computer requirements), check out CIS's Back to School website.
