Wear a Mask sign on the front steps of the law school

The law school welcomes students back to our campus in Concord for a COVID-19-ready fall semester. Informed by the latest science, public health guidance, and ideas from our university community, UNH Franklin Pierce School of Law is developing a flexible, in-person fall 2020 experience designed to keep our community safe, ensure access and quality for our students, and move our community forward. Should health conditions change, we are prepared to pivot in support of the health and well-being of our community.

For emergencies, dial 911. For health, safety, and other pressing issues that are not addressed in our FAQs, please email covid@unh.edu or call the UNH COVID-19 hotline at (603) 862-2020 between the hours of 8:30am and 5pm.

COVID Testing

Before coming back to campus, all students, faculty, and staff must test negative for COVID-19 no sooner than 8 days before they expect to be on campus. Please register 24 hours in advance via this link. Once on campus, students, faculty, and staff will be retested periodically. There are three ways to get a test before coming to campus:

  • At UNH (in New Hampshire)
    • UNH has testing sites at each campus. Before arriving for your test please register online. Use your @unh.edu email to register and bring your UNH ID or a valid driver’s license to the testing site for verification. Test results will be maintained by Health & Wellness and shared only with the individual and the NH Department of Health and Human Services.

Once you have been tested by ConvenientMD you will receive an email from Veritas encouraging you to create an account where you will receive your test results.

  • At Quest (nationwide)
    • All students who plan to be on one of our campuses (Durham, Manchester or Concord) must submit proof of a negative test prior to arrival. Students should be tested no earlier than eight days prior to arrival. UNH is collaborating with Quest to provide pre-arrival COVID-19 testing for students who are unable to travel to any of the designated ConvenientMD locations. Register as soon as possible and learn the easiest and most convenient way for you to get a COVID-19 test. You will need your student ID number to complete the registration process. Once you register you will either have a kit mailed to you or be provided with a nearby location. If you do not know your student ID number, please visit https://www.unh.edu/it/find-your-id-number.
