The University of New Hampshire School of Law online Housing Marketplace is an exclusive list of rentals made available to the UNH Law community. At our discretion, this list may be shared with others.

Get Comfortable

We know finding a new place to live can be challenging. Here are a few basic guidelines to help you better understand the easiest way to go about finding housing in the Concord area.

The cost of living in New Hampshire is one of the lowest in New England, and New Hampshire has no sales or state income tax. Concord is consistently ranked one of the nation's top micropolitan communities and offers a wide variety of housing options, from condominiums to charming apartments in the downtown district. 

A Lease Agreement
Signing a lease is the customary way to rent an apartment. Before moving in to your new place, you will have to sign a lease - a contract that states your obligation to pay rent on the property for a specific duration of time.

A Security Deposit
A security deposit (generally the amount of one month's rent) is required prior to moving in to an apartment. This sum protects the landlord from unspecified damages to the property. If no major damages occur, the deposit is returned at the end of the lease.

Utilities
Before signing a lease, the landlord may or may not agree to pay for specific utilities (heat, electricity, etc.). Information concerning the average price of each utility can be received from the landlord. 

Landlord Rules/Policies
Landlords have specific rules and/or policies that should be respected. They may have rules/policies regarding loud music, certain types of cooking, and pets. Inquire about these rules/policies prior to signing the lease. Once you have agreed to the terms, abide by them throughout your stay.

Furnishings
Many apartments are not furnished, but students can easily find basic furnishings. Used furniture can be bought at a fair price and is found in the classified section of the local newspaper, from other students or local residents, from used furniture stores in town, and on the internet.

Roommates
Sharing your living space with other students is not only a more economical way to live, but can also provide a learning environment for people from diverse cultures and backgrounds.

The Concord Monitor, the local newspaper, can be a useful resource to locate housing. Many landlords with property to rent in Concord will place advertisements in the Monitor on a regular basis.

The Union Leader & New Hampshire Sunday News is another newspaper that may be useful in locating housing. Because of its wide circulation base throughout the state, landlords in Concord may list rentals here as well.

Craigslist is a centralized network of online communities, featuring free classified advertisements (with jobs, internships, housing, personals, for sale/barter/wanted, services, community, gigs, resume, and pets categories) and forums on various topics.

The Housing Marketplace is a free service provided exclusively to the University of New Hampshire School of Law community.   At our discretion, this list may be shared with others. 

Prior to posting a rental listing, you will be required to create a user account. Once your account has been approved, you can manage your listings (edit, deactivate or refresh entries) at your convenience.

The Housing Marketplace is designed to gather information that is most important to students. Additional information that you feel is pertinent to your rental may be described in the comments section of your listing. You may also post pictures of the rental within your listing. UNH School of Law highly recommends that landlords take advantage of this feature. Pictures are the item most requested by students who cannot travel to Concord prior to signing a lease.

Landlords who have the most success renting their properties are those who price their rentals at reasonable rates, provide the services that they promise, and give an accurate description of the rental they are offering. For example: if you are renting a room with shared common areas, list the rental as a room for rent, not as an apartment with roommates. We have found that the landlords who provide accurate and detailed information have very positive working relationships with their student tenants. Word travels fast on a small campus. If a student has a favorable rental experience, chances are they are going to share information about your rental property with someone else at UNH School of Law.

While the University of New Hampshire School of Law appreciates the service that landlords help us provide to our students, we want you to be aware that listing your rental property with UNH School of Law is not a guarantee that you will rent your property to a student. For this reason, it is suggested that you use other means of advertisement as well.

Rental listings are reviewed by the Housing Coordinator prior to being made available for students to view. UNH School of Law reserves the right to suspend a listing at any time without notice. We provide rental listings as a courtesy to the UNH Law community, however, we do not endorse any of the listings posted on the Housing Marketplace.
