UNH Website's New Look

More Dynamic, Engaging Design

Earlier this summer, the University redesigned its website (www.newhaven.edu).

The new site, which contains over 18,000 pages, boasts the following improvements:

The alumni pages provide easier access to alumni events, news, class notes and social media.

A more dynamic home page ensures that important UNH content is prominently showcased.

The width of the design was increased by 26 percent, creating a great look on larger monitors, widescreen laptops and tablets.

The integration of social media allows users to share content on more than 300 sites with one click, and interact with us via several social networks.

The college landing pages are more engaging and showcase key initiatives, events and programs in a more attractive and inviting way.

Check out the new site.
