The University of New Hampshire's scenic main campus is known for its history and year-round beauty. The residential campus is located in Durham, just an hour north of Boston and an hour south of the White Mountains. It's easily accessible by many means of transportation, including Amtrak train: We have our very own station right on campus. Campus Tours: Meet for 30 minutes with an admissions counselor and ask any question you'd like. Then, explore our breathtaking campus on a 90-minute tour led by one of our kind, motivated students, and see why great people like you belong here.

I love UNH because of the accessibility to the White Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. There is always a new place to explore and find adventure.
