Welcome to the University of New Hampshire

Welcome to the University of New Hampshire

As a member of the UNH community, the University affords a wealth of resources to support your success. The opportunities to learn and to grow are virtually limitless, shaped primarily by your motivation to rise to embrace the intellectual and personal challenges of a college education. As with any community, there are rules that have been developed to ensure a supportive and appropriate environment for learning. While these rules pertain primarily to students, they are consistent with the expectations for all members of the UNH community. 

This year’s Student Rights, Rules, and Responsibilities outline those expectations that the University has established to foster an environment conducive to learning on—and beyond—the University campus. One crucial aspect of this environment is our collective commitment to respecting the rights, dignity, and worth of all community members. As a land, sea, and space grant University, we recognize that our “classroom” extends throughout the universe and we hope that you will carry this same sense of respect to all corners of the world, beginning with our host community of Durham. For this reason, we ask that you take the time to review all of these documents in order to understand the values and rules of this community.  

For the vast majority of our students, college will be a challenging and worthwhile experience. By taking the time to become familiar with the expectations and rules outlined in this document we hope this will allow you to focus on the best parts of college life and to truly discover your own future at UNH. 

Again, welcome to the University of New Hampshire. If there is anything we can do to help you to succeed and to realize your dreams, please let us know.
