Overview

Southern New Hampshire University: Get Ready for WhatÔÇÖs Next

In the heart of southern New Hampshire, SNHU’s classic New England college campus has everything you need to pursue your passions and make memories that last a lifetime. With 70+ career-focused majors, new residence halls, state-of-the-art facilities, D2 athletics, over 70 student clubs and organizations and a beautiful 300-acre campus, get ready for the college experience you’ve been dreaming of. 

Higher Education, Lower Cost

Our academic programs are created for real-world success, so students are prepared to launch their careers as soon as they graduate. With over 70 academic programs to choose from, you can explore your passion at SNHU. From robotics labs and drone arenas to makerspaces and machine shops, hands-on learning is the foundation of our university.

We believe that a great education should be accessible, which is why our education pathways are designed to meet the needs of today’s learners and we offer some of the most affordable tuition rates in the state. 

With opportunities for grants, academic and athletic scholarships and work study, you can get the campus experience you’ve been dreaming of at a more affordable price.

Earning a Degree is a Team Effort

At SNHU, we know that earning your degree is a major achievement, but you don’t have to do it alone. With professional academic advisors and expert faculty, you’ll have guidance throughout your college journey. Your peers—whether as tutors, resident assistants or just friends—will also be there to have your back.

We can help you build your own unique constellation of support—the group of people you surround yourself with to help navigate hurdles and make progress on your goals. Whether it’s research guidance at the Shapiro Library, interview practice with a career advisor or working on your health goals in the Wellness Center, there are thousands of people at SNHU ready to help.

Make Yourself at Home

Located only minutes from downtown Manchester and an hour away from the beach, mountains and the City of Boston, SNHU’s campus keeps you near the action.

Our 300-acre, wooded campus has received numerous upgrades and new construction projects in recent years, including a science and technology center, the School of Engineering, Technology and Aeronautics building and the William S. Green Center for Student Success. 

With options ranging from residence hall suites to shared apartments, you can make yourself home at SNHU with all the amenities at hand:

  • High-speed internet
  • Bed frame, mattress, desk, desk chair, window treatments and wardrobe
  • Flexible meal plans with options for every palette
  • Full-time and graduate assistant residence directors
  • Social and community-based events
  • Some residence halls offer additional options like common areas and game rooms

Find Your People

With 3,000 students on-campus, SNHU maintains an intentionally small student body so students will never feel like a number or just another face. With an average class size of 14 students, faculty members recognize their students and interact with them inside and outside of the classroom. 

 

With over 70 recognized student clubs and organizations, connecting with your peers is easy. You can explore academic interests, perform community service, develop leadership skills or dive deeper into a hobby. If you’re interested in something not currently represented by a student club or organization on campus, don’t worry. It’s easy to start your own!

Play to WinÔÇöOn and Off the Field

Whether you’re going for the goal at the Mark A. Ouellette Stadium or leveling up in the SNHU esports arena, you can always stay ahead of the game. With astroturf, an 8-lane track, 6 tennis courts, 1,500 seats and a varsity athlete fitness center, the Mark A. Ouellette Stadium is a destination for athletes and fans alike. Our state-of-the-art esports arena has 18 high-end PC stations with broadcasting and streaming capabilities and is open to all students.

Interested in getting active outside of collegiate-level teams? Join one of our 20+ athletic clubs and intermural sports. Additionally, all students have access to free weights, machine weights, cardiovascular equipment and a climbing wall at the fitness center.

SNHU is an NCAA Division II school and is a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association and the Northeast-10 Conference.

WeÔÇÖre ready. Are you?

Come see campus for yourself! Whether you attend a tour, open house or accepted student day, you can see all that SNHU has to offer. Schedule a visit and apply at snhu.edu/campus.
