  1. About Us

    Campus Recreation Philosophy

    The Philosophy of Campus Recreation is that, at UNH, it’s all about the students. The goal of Campus Recreation is to provide a wide range of programs and services that maximize student participation and involvement. By doing so, we create the opportunity to promote real-life learning-- an important value of this institution.

    Campus Recreation Mission

    • Offer programs and services that are comprehensive and target   a broad range of students and campus community members.

    •  Manage a progressive    and comprehensive   facility and ensure a safe, clean, and enjoyable environment.

    • Provide experiential learning and facilitate the development of leadership, social, and management skills through employment and participation opportunities.

    • Always provide quality service by being respectful and understanding to every student, member, and individual.
