    Campus Safety
    Proud to consistently be ranked one of the top 10 safest college campuses.

    Our leadership as one of the top 10 safest campuses in the country was even more critical this fall as COVID-19 called on the Wildcat community’s innovation, flexibility and resilience. Hear from some of our current students about how they didn’t just feel safe on UNH’s open campus this fall: they felt especially proud to be Wildcats. It’s the big things–like establishing our own state-of-the-art testing lab –and the even bigger things, like how we take care of each other.
