The campus in Rochester includes advanced manufacturing, CNC, NDT and welding labs outfitted with equipment used in industry. The Portsmouth campus includes designated lab spaces for life sciences, nursing, veterinary technology, computer technology, surgical technology and information systems technology. Both campuses offer high tech classrooms and ample space for students to study and gather.

5 Athletic Teams

If I could identify one thing that made a difference, it would be Great Bay. I talk all the time about how much Great Bay changed my life and gave me a huge foundation. I am incredibly grateful for my time there.

Great to be at the First Robotics Competition New England District Event last Saturday at UNH. Spectators, including our Admissions team and President Lesser (pictured addressing the crowd) were wowed by the over 40 robotics teams from high schools and Career Tech Ed Centers.
I believe that through studying for my English degree, I have become a more open-minded, sympathetic and empathetic person.
