Attention Granite State College Community

Updated: March 9, 2022

Due to the health challenges with the COVID-19 pandemic, the College has been essentially remote since March 2020. In the same way that technology has, for over 20 years, enabled Granite State College to bridge gaps for students to complete their degree programs, technology has empowered faculty and staff to work predominantly remotely during this time. Despite the challenges, students were able to make progress with their academic plans and employees were able to work in new ways to serve the needs of our students in fulfillment of our public mission. Therefore, moving forward, members of our Granite State College staff will have flexibility to work in campus offices, remotely, or a combination of the two based on the business need within their division and the College.

Manchester academic center at 1750 Elm Street Manchester will be utilized primarily for Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) programming, and professional development. The UNH-Manchester campus at 88 Commercial Street Manchester offers Campus-based and hybrid courses.

Whether students seek career guidance, registration support, financial aid, or academic advising, our team will be available by chat, phone, via Zoom, or email. Visit our Contact Us page for more details and a staff directory.

Updated Safety Guidance for Re-opening

As one of the four campuses of the University System of New Hampshire, Granite State College will share updated safety protocols based on the CDC and NH Department of Health and Human Services recommendations. Our requirements will be subject to change based on conditions in the campus, community, and region.

We know the following:

  1. COVID-19 vaccines are effective at keeping you from getting COVID-19.
  2. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine will also help keep you from getting seriously ill even if you do get COVID-19; and
  3. COVID-19 vaccination is an important tool to bring you closer to enjoying the activities you have missed

The College will only be open for regularly scheduled courses, professional development, and OLLI programming. We have put in place the following mitigation protocols:

  • Do not enter any Granite State College facility or participate in any Granite State College program if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, have tested positive for COVID-19, or have had known exposure to COVID-19 within the last 10 days.
  • Masks are no longer required in indoor campus spaces effective March 4, 2022. Masks are still required for individuals who were recently in isolation or quarantine and need to mask for 10 days.  As a reminder, the CDC encourages those more at risk for getting very sick from COVID to stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines (getting primary series and booster) and following preventative measures, including masking. Some community members may still choose to wear a mask for various reasons. If someone asks you to wear a mask—including in the classroom—say yes if at all possible.
  • Surveillance testing of faculty and staff who are frequently using Granite State College facilities will be required regardless of vaccination status.

Any changes to policy and safety procedures based on changing conditions in the campus, community and region, will be announced here.
