  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

4.11 Average Rating
The University of New Hampshire has been nothing less than a place that I consider my second home. It's the one place where being a freshman is considered better than being a senior because the upperclassmen know that you still have 3 more years to be there when they're graduating. Everyone looks forward to meeting the incoming freshmen so that they can give their advice and help anytime it's needed, and likes to make everyone feel welcome.
Victoria from West Hartford, CT
they have a lot to offer no matter what your major or even if you are undecided. the campus has a lot of diversity and you can expect to meet a lot of different people. the campus is large and set in a quiet little town which is very proud to have the university.
Ciaira from Hillsboro, NH
The University of New Hampshire is home to me. UNH includes a wide aray of academic studies that is sure to satisfy your goals for the next four years, along with resources that will help you create an unforgettable journey and the adventure of a lifetime. I take pride in being a part of the UNH community and strongly encourage young adults to consider it in their quest to start a future in the career of their choice.
