Founded in 1920 on the campus of Yale University in cooperation with Northeastern University, UNH moved to its current West Haven campus in 1960 and opened its Orange Campus in January, 2014.
UNH offers over 80 undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
At the University of New Haven, innovation is in our DNA. You will apply what you learn, making discoveries as you work alongside faculty members who are widely recognized for what they have accomplished. In our culture of innovation, the possibilities for what you will uncover are limitless.
We offer full career development services to help our undergraduate and graduate students, as well as our alumni of all programs, learn how to effectively manage and develop their careers.
The UNH Career Development Center provides the full circle of services including the assessment of career skills and interests, the exploration of career and major options, preparation and assistance in locating internships and experience-based opportunities, and all related career management needs such as resumes, cover letters, interview training and practice, job search assistance, and guidance on graduate school options.
The Centers for Academic Success and Advising (CASA) are comprised of three offices, each of which is dedicated to giving University of New Haven students the skills they need to be successful students and graduates. Our approach is appreciative, personal, collaborative, and comprehensive. The mission of CASA is to provide a seamless program of services to support students across their entire academic experience.
The mission of the Marvin K. Peterson Library is to support the academic programs of the University by providing information, materials, and a wide range of library services to our faculty, students, and staff.
All enrolled students receive a University of New Haven network account. The account name and password is automatically generated and the account information is sent by emaill to the email address provided by the student. This process generally starts in March for students beginning classes in the fall.
The office is the primary provider of on-campus medical care in cases of student illness or injury. Health Services is also responsible for educational health programs. A weekly Women's Services Clinic provides assistance and information about gynecological care.
Orange Campus: Located directly adjacent to the Wilbur Cross Parkway between exits 55 and 56, the campus’s all-business atmosphere, room to spread out, and distraction-free setting offer students some serious concentration time as well as a raft of amenities.
