We welcome you to the University of New Hampshire!


This year’s conference will be held on the beautiful campus of the University of New Hampshire. The University of New Hampshire's scenic main campus is known for its history and year-round beauty. The residential campus is located in Durham, just an hour north of Boston and an hour south of the White Mountains. It's easily accessible by many means of transportation, including Amtrak train: We have our very own station right on campus.

Getting to UNH

By Plane

The major airports servicing Durham and the surrounding area are Logan International Airport and Manchester-Boston Regional Airport. Rental car agencies are available at both airports.

By Bus

From Logan Airport, C&J Bus Lines has a bus service that runs between Boston Logan Airport and Portsmouth, NH and Dover, NH. Unfortunately, during the summer months there is limited bus service to UNH from these bus stations.

From the Dover location, you can take a bus through the COAST Bus and then transfer to UNH Wildcat Transit, but again, during the summer months when there are not a lot of students on campus, these trips are infrequent.

Obtaining a ride through a ride share or taxi from these C&J terminals may be your best choice.
