In 1993, Wellness Housing was formed at SNHU to provide students with an option that was supportive of substance-free living.
The goal of the program is to provide a residential environment that supports substance-free living regardless of a resident's age, and encourages residents to learn more about their personal health through the programs and activities offered on the floor.
To initiate Wellness Application, please log-in to MyHousing via SNHU Residence Life and click on "MyHousing Director" in the left side panel. Then head to Apply Online and select the Wellness application related to either first year students or returning Wellness residents.
The wellness housing floor is located in Chocorua Hall, part of the Upper Suites area on campus. It is conveniently located in the center of campus, providing for easy access to the Student Center, the library, and most classroom buildings.
The floor consists of a traditional hall format, with two common lounges located at each end of the floor. The floor is co-ed in occupancy and houses up to 25 students, including the Resident Assistant. The majority of rooms are double occupancy.
