About University of New Hampshire

In 1861, the United States federal government approved the Morrill Act which set aside land in each state for the founding of public higher education. In 1862, the New Hampshire state legislature accepted the grant of 80,000 acres of public lands on which to set up a university. It wasn't until 1866, however, that the New Hampshire College of Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts was incorporated by the state legislature.

The NHCAMA was established in Hanover, NH in order to share the resources of Dartmouth College. Each institution, however, was to retain their separate identities. In 1893, The New Hampshire College moved to its present campus in Durham after Benjamin Thompson, a prosperous farmer, bequeathed his land and money to further the development of the College. The College thrived in Durham, and in 1923 the state legislature granted it a new charter as the University of New Hampshire.
