WEST HAVEN, CONN. – If you are interested in attending or are planning to visit the University of New Haven, you might want to download the app EXPLORE UNH first.

The app, available through iTunes and Google Play, allows prospective students, their families, friends, returning alumni, and visitors to the UNH main campus at 300 Boston Post Road to have access to an electronic map, driving directions, walking tour, admissions information, restaurant and hotel information, and information about life at UNH.

“Downloading the app is an excellent way to prepare for a campus visit,” says Kevin Phillips, associate vice president for enrollment management.  “We want to make it as easy as possible to help our visitors, particularly our prospective students and their families, get the most out of their time on campus.  This app puts all of the information you might need at your fingertips in a very accessible format.”

Admissions information, a self-guided walking tour and UNH wallpaper backgrounds are three of the app's features.

Published on UNH’s behalf by Smart College Visit Inc., the free app provides a navigational and travel planning guide to campus including turn-by-turn directions to nearly every building on campus, parking lots, athletic facilities and residence halls.

Smart College Visit is a Blacksburg, Virginia-based higher ed marketing and college visit planning portal. More information can be found at, 540-200-8780 or by email. ( Smart College Visit is on Twitter at
