The University of New Hampshire at Manchester (or UNHM) was established in 1985 as the sixth college of the University of New Hampshire.[1] Located in Manchester, UNHM provides associate's, bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees, with special emphasis on programs that address urban issues. Additionally, UNHM has a collaborative agreement with the neighboring New Hampshire Institute of Art that allows students interested in pursuing a degree in Fine Art to transfer into the Institute's BFA program.

Each semester approximately 1,500 students commute to the city campus to take classes in the University Center building, where the college moved during the 1999 through 2001 academic years from its old campus on Hackett Hill near Hooksett, New Hampshire; for more than a decade, the college had maintained both campuses, with the bulk of the campus and most support functions on Hackett Hill and limited class offerings in the former textile mill building. Due to its central location in Manchester, the largest city in the state, UNHM is within a thirty minutes' drive of half the state's population. For this reason, and the lack of on-campus housing, the school considers itself to be the University's "commuter college."

University Center is located at 400 Commercial Street on the banks of the Merrimack River in Manchester's historic millyard. The 75,000-square-foot (7,000 m2) building, built in 1880, formerly housed the machine shop of the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company.

UNH Manchester is a college of the University of New Hampshire. The University of New Hampshire is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc.
