About the University of New Hampshire

The University of New Hampshire was founded in 1866 by the state legislature as the New Hampshire College of Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts. First situated in Hanover in connection with Dartmouth College, the NHCAMA was removed to its Durham campus in 1893 after Benjamin Thompson, a prosperous farmer, bequeathed land and money to the state for educational use. In 1923, the state legislature granted it a new charter as the University of New Hampshire.
