Shadow a Wildcat.

Get a firsthand look at what being a Wildcat is all about. Explore campus, meet with UNH students and admissions staff, attend a class and eat in one of our award-winning dining facilities. While students are participating in their shadow experience, parents/guardians and other guests will have the opportunity to explore campus on their own or attend one of our guided tours -- offered at 9 a.m and 1:30 p.m.

During your visit, students can expect to be paired up with a current wildcat who will bring them to one class and lunch. Afterwards, you are welcome to explore campus on your own or join our guided tours listed above. Admission staff are available to answer any questions or provide directions to points of interest on campus.


Choose a single session to register: 8 a.m. - 1 p.m. (morning session) or 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. (afternoon session). We offer multiple time periods per day; you can expect your shadow start time to be within this timeframe.  Students will receive a personalized schedule two days in advance of their shadow day. Please register for a single session, and kindly notify us if your plans change and you are unable to attend. Although not guaranteed, our staff will make every possible effort to match admitted students with current UNH students in their admitted major.
