Join us for Shadow a Wildcat Day.

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., 12 p.m., and 2 p.m.

Register

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. Our staff will make every possible effort to match prospective students with a current student who shares their academic interests, however, we cannot guarantee this.
