No matter how many times you visit the UNH campus, there are just some things you will not know until you are actually living there as a student. Here are 5 things you won’t know about UNH until you live there!

1. The slang for building names. 

Lots of the buildings on the UNH campus have nicknames that students have created over the years. T-Hall, the Mub, Philly, The Whitt, etc. are just a few examples. However, you won’t pick up on this until you live on campus and spend a lot of time here!

2. Everyone plays in the snow. 

UNH students love the snow and love to be out in it. Whether it is sledding, building a snowman, or just going for a walk with friends, snow storms do not shut down the campus for students.

3. Late night at Philbrook will save your life.

There will be countless times where you are studying and lose track of time and realize you have not eaten. Luckily, Philbrook dining hall is open late for 4 nights a week. You will spend a lot of time here and you will be grateful for this.

4. People take naps on T-Hall lawn. 

During the nicer seasons, it is completely normal to lay out on T-Hall lawn and maybe even take a quick nap. If you are a person who likes to spend time outside during the nice weather, you will not be alone here on the UNH campus.

5. The MUB is one of the busiest places on campus. 

The MUB is like UNH‘s version of Times Square. Everyone is in a rush, bustling around and trying to quickly get some lunch, grab a coffee from dunkin, deliver mail, etc. Lots of students are in and out of the MUB all day, and it is extremely busy.

UNH is home to many students that love the school that they’re at. Choose UNH to be your home for the next four years and learn more about the campus then you ever could through tours and online.

Being on campus has taught me a lot about learning how to manage my time, cope with stress, and adjust to the different living conditions! I hope to supply my fellow college students with advice and comfort on all of the situations that come along with being a college student.
