Welcome to the University of New Hampshire at Manchester, the university's campus in the heart of Merrimack Valley. Our mission is to provide an affordable avenue for students in southern New Hampshire to earn the world-class UNH degree.

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. Led by faculty who are experts in their fields, 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, creating a campus environment in which students, faculty, business/industry, government, and non-profits 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.

Bringing together career-driven programs, faculty talent and a focus on experiential learning, UNH Manchester prepares students for success in their chosen field — and connects them to the wealth of opportunities in the region.


The University of New Hampshire at Manchester was established in 1985 as the sixth undergraduate college of the University of New Hampshire. The University of New Hampshire is accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (formerly the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc.), which accredits schools and colleges in the six New England states. Accreditation by the association indicates that the institution has been carefully reviewed and found to meet or exceed standards agreed upon by nationally recognized educators.


The UNH Manchester faculty is its greatest asset. Residential faculty members have earned reputations for excellent teaching, scholarly achievement in their fields, and service to the community. They are recognized scholars and have acquired national and international reputations. Adjunct faculty members bring applied experience and a commitment to teaching to the classroom. Most importantly, UNH Manchester's dedicated faculty members are outstanding teachers who care about each individual student. Faculty members work closely with students as advisers and help students define their goals, plan career objectives, and develop an individualized program of study within each major.
