Attend Admitted Student Visit Day

You may be wondering, What is Admitted Student Visit Day (ASVD) at UNH? Admitted Student Visit Day is an extremely valuable experience, as your student will be able to attend academic information sessions, tour residence halls, facilities and campus, and get all their questions answered.

ASVD is the time for you to let your student truly take the lead in exploring campus and imagining themselves there. Our students often say that attending ASVD is the reason they chose to attend UNH! Each college hosts their own ASVD, along with other admitted student events.

Submit your enrollment deposit
