What's Happening? Find Out With the Revamped Calendar

UNH Calendar

Whether you’re looking to attend a seminar or a football game or want to know the last day you can drop a class, you can find it on the newly-revamped UNH calendar.
The one-stop source of information allows users to see all university events at a glance.
“This new software program makes the whole process much faster and more efficient,” says Susan Entz, director of Presidential Events and Programs. “A huge benefit is that it’s so user friendly.”

You get to the calendar from the dropdown menu on the home page. From there, navigating is simple, using the options listed on the left side. “All events” takes you to the calendar that shows everything happening on campus for the month. You can also check things out by the day or by the year. Or, you can opt to look at a particular department’s own calendar. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, events can be searched by type or venue.
When you subscribe to a calendar and a new event is added—ie, another hockey game is scheduled by athletics—you’ll get an email letting you know there’s something new. You can also add an event to your personal calendar. (Hover on the event until the information box appears. Click the date icon on the bottom left of the page.)
Another component that makes the new calendar so friendly is the ‘UNH Calendar Help’ page. (The link is on the left side of the calendar home page under ‘other links.’) Here’s where you find out what constitutes an event, the kind that can be posted, and how to make that happen. Calendar managers review submissions every weekday and approved events show up on the calendar within 72 hours.
“Changes can be made in real time. Anyone can use it. This program is easy to use and so functional,” Entz says.
The event management software is used by more than 800 colleges and universities.
