A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:

The main UNH campus is in Durham, NH. Nine schools comprise this campus: the College of Liberal Arts, College of Life Science and Agriculture, the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences, the Peter T. Paul School of Business and Economics; the Carsey School for Public Policy; School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering, the College of Health and Human Services, the Graduate School, and the Thompson School of Applied Science.


Which of the following features are present on campus and which are included within the institutional boundary?:
Present? Included?
Agricultural school Yes Yes
Medical school No No
Other professional school with labs and clinics (e.g. dental, nursing, pharmacy, public health, veterinary) No No
Satellite campus Yes No
Farm larger than 5 acres or 2 hectares Yes Yes
Agricultural experiment station larger than 5 acres or 2 hectares Yes Yes
Hospital No No

The rationale for excluding any features that are present from the institutional boundary:

UNH has two satellite campuses (in addition to two other colleges in the University System of NH that report entirely separately--Keene State and Plymouth State.) The two satellite campuses, UNH-Manchester and UNH Law School, are both more than 45 miles from the main campus in Durham, and are operated as separate entities, with different staff, and only a few shared faculty. For that reason, this report excludes the facilities, staff and academics of those two satellite campuses.
