Welcome Week is the first week of school beginning with Move-in Day on Sunday, August 23, 2009, and continuing through the following Monday (Labor Day). The activities that take place during Welcome Week are designed to acquaint you with campus, help you meet UNH students, and provide you with basic information about your time at UNH. Here are some of the many events you can expect to attend during Welcome Week: Club and Organization Fair, RecSports
(Intramurals), College Orientations, Community Service Activities, Comedians, Athletic Events, Movies, Off-Campus Trips, Special Shuttles to Ikea, the West Haven Beach, and more!

The schedule for this year is still in the planning stages.
The complete schedule of events will be coming to you in August!

Students should plan to bring the following on Move-in Day:
  • Alarm clock
  • Blankets, pillow, bed linens (extra long twin sheets)
  • Towels
  • Study lamps (not halogen)
  • Extension cord
  • Desk supplies (pens, pencils, calculator, etc.)
  • Laundry bag and detergent
  • Plants
  • Pictures of friends and family
  • Posters
  • Rug
  • Mug/glass
  • Personal electronics (television, DVD player, stereo, etc.)
  • Bath items (shampoo, soap, etc.) and something to contain them

Of course this list will vary based on student preferences. Students should be sure to communicate with their roommates over the summer to determine who will bring larger items (such as a television or mini-fridge).
