Where there are no limits to what you can do
At Southern New Hampshire University, we help you discover and develop your passions—both inside and outside the classroom.
You’re going to love it here
At SNHU, we all come from different places with different backgrounds, backstories, dreams, and talents. But there’s one thing we have in common: we’ve chosen to make the 338-acre SNHU Manchester campus our home because it fosters a community where we can discover and develop our talents, forge lifelong friendships, and create new ways to make the world a better place. If you share these goals, you’re going to love it here.
Once you arrive at SNHU, you’ll meet our impressive faculty members who are engineers, writers, game designers, accountants, economists, entrepreneurs, and much more. In fact, the range of professional experiences embodied by our faculty is second only to the range of global experiences represented by our students. With over 40 countries represented in our student body, SNHU is never short of fresh, new perspectives.
SNHU is large enough to offer a wide range of educational programs and small enough that you’ll never feel like just a face in the crowd. When you walk through campus on your way to a class or club meeting, you’ll see friends, classmates, professors, career advisors, and more—and you’ll be able to greet them all by name. With a student body of just over 3,000 on-campus students, SNHU strikes a perfect balance between community and personalization. We believe professors should connect to students individually. After all, college is about more than just preparing you for a future career: it’s about creating a culture that inspires every person, every day, to do more, learn more, try harder, and exceed expectations.
There’s no shortage of things to do or places to be
On SNHU’s gorgeous riverside campus, we’re always making improvements. We recently celebrated the grand opening of our new welcome center, home to our offices of admissions, career development, and alumni relations—ensuring that every step in the SNHU life cycle is represented under one roof. Kingston Hall, our newest residence hall, opened in the summer of 2018 (joining Monadnock Hall, which opened in 2017), and we recently open a state-of-the-art academic building to house our College of Engineering, Technology, and Aeronautics (CETA). The SNHU campus is also home to an augmented and virtual reality lab, a museum-quality art gallery, a 24-acre arboretum, and our Penmen Stadium athletic facility.
“Student-run” is a term you’ll hear a lot at SNHU. Campus activities run the gamut from intercollegiate athletics and intramural sports to lip-sync contests and comedy shows. With numerous clubs and organizations to get involved with, you never know where you’ll meet your next lifelong friend—or when!
The world has changed—and SNHU is ready for the challenge
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted our lives, SNHU leadership knew a traditional college education was out of reach for a majority of Americans. In order to truly live up to our mission of transforming lives by expanding access to high-quality education, we had to face this challenge head on. We had to lower tuition.
Introducing a more affordable SNHU campus education
Right now, SNHU is creating a radically more affordable way for you to earn your degree and enjoy the many enriching experiences that campus life offers. But our new campus academic program will still continue to deliver the dedicated, personal support that’s helped thousands of SNHU graduates reach their academic and career goals.
We’re excited to share the full details of this new program later in the fall of 2020. In the meantime, we have several ways for you to keep in touch and learn more about the SNHU campus experience:
• Apply now with no application fee: first-year students, transfer students
• Sign up to receive campus updates
• Take a video tour of our campus
• Connect with an admission counselor who will guide you every step of the way
Applying to SNHU is free and easy. We look forward to welcoming you and showing you all the SNHU campus has to offer!
