Students have health and wellness resources through UNH Health Services: http://www.unh.edu/health-services/

For faculty and staff employees, the USNH Health & Wellness programs and services are dedicated to educating, motivating, and empowering individuals to make healthy lifestyle choices. The UNH Human Resources page offers a host of resources to assist employees in striving to live healthy and active lifestyles.
