The Dean's Welcome

Welcome to the University of New Hampshire at Manchester — the university’s urban campus. Our mission is to offer a UNH education to commuter students in greater Manchester and Merrimack Valley region. We offer students an affordable avenue for working toward a UNH degree, with smaller classes held at times that accommodate the schedules of students who are also working. Our core liberal arts courses provide a foundation for more applied science and technology majors, as well as traditional liberal arts majors.

At UNH Manchester, we capitalize on our location in the revitalized millyard of New Hampshire’s largest city. Our campus on the banks of the Merrimack River is a few blocks from the heart of the state’s financial and corporate center and home to many of the region’s non-profit and government offices. UNH Manchester is a vibrant university campus, and our programs prepare students for the opportunities of tomorrow in the region’s business, education, government, non-profit, service and technology sectors.

UNH Manchester is uniquely equipped to support regional economic development. The campus creates an environment in which students, faculty, business/industry, government, and nonprofits collaborate on mutually beneficial projects and initiatives. As a community partner, we have a commitment to the region’s economic vitality, respond to educational and economic opportunities, and support innovation and student access to programs designed and delivered for the future.

If you are already one of our students, you have already experienced the excitement of the city and campus for yourself. If you are a prospective student, please contact us to arrange a visit to our campus to meet the great team of faculty and staff who are passionate in what they do to help our students succeed.
