With the University of New Hampshire being such a large campus that endures lots of poor whether conditions throughout the year, it becomes harder and harder for students to get around throughout the year. Luckily, the University of New Hampshire has multiple modes of transportation for students to use around campus.
1. The Wildcat Transit bus.
This bus takes students as far as Dover and Portsmouth, and drives students all throughout campus. Just show your student ID to the driver, and you can get around campus and the surrounding areas for free. This comes in handy on cold days on campus, or for students that do not have their cars on campus. If you want to spend a day in Portsmouth with your friends, but do not have a way of getting there, check the bus schedule and hop on! This comes in handy when you need to get off campus, to the other side of campus, or you just need to run some errands.
2. The train station.
For the students that want to travel a little farther, the Amtrak train station is right on Main St on campus for students to use. Buy a train ticket and board right from your college campus. This is helpful if you’re looking to spend a weekend at home, or if you want to plan a weekend trip to get off of campus. This train usually travels to Boston, and from there, numerous trains go to many different locations. Book your ticket today!
Although these are not supplied by the university, there are many students that own mopeds and many students that sell them around campus. Walking to class can be tiring on such a widespread campus. With a moped, you can zip through the streets, and get to class efficiently and on time. Look into getting a moped and a parking pass for your next semester at the U!
Believe it or not, there are many UNH students that invest in bikes during that time at the University of New Hampshire. Since the campus is so large and widespread, sometimes walking can get to be too much. Therefore, a lot of students decide to bring a bike to campus to get around more quickly. If you get tired of trecking out campus, consider investing in a bike for a faster commute to class every day.
With all of this transportation, living on campus without a car is not so bad. With the train, your moped, and the transit bus, you are able to get anywhere you need in a timely manner. Take advantage of this convenience to learn about Durham and your other surroundings. Enjoy, and explore wildcats!
