List of colleges and universities in New Hampshire
This is a list of colleges and universities in the U.S. state of New Hampshire. For the purposes of this list, colleges and universities are defined as accredited,[a] degree-granting, postsecondary institutions. There are currently 21 such institutions operating in the state, including seven universities, one art school, and one law school, as well as a number of undergraduate associates and baccalaureate colleges. In addition, four out-of-state institutions offer courses and degrees at locations in New Hampshire, and twelve academic institutions were formerly active in the state.
The state's five public universities are administered by the University System of New Hampshire, which is the largest provider of postsecondary education in the state. New Hampshire is also served by a network of seven public, technical community colleges. The oldest school in the state is Dartmouth College, a member of the Ivy League and the only New Hampshire institution founded before the American Revolution. The newest is the University of New Hampshire at Manchester, founded as the state's fifth public university in 1985. Enrollment sizes range from small, liberal arts colleges with fewer than 100 students to the flagship state school University of New Hampshire in Durham, which serves over 14,000 students.
The active institutions included on this list are all accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), with two exceptions. Antioch University New England is accredited by the North Central Association of Schools and Colleges and the Higher Learning Commission, and Northeast Catholic College (formerly the College of Saint Mary Magdalen) has been granted Candidacy for Accreditation Status by NEASC.
