Manchester, New Hampshire

One hour from Boston, one hour from the seacoast, one hour from the White Mountains — Manchester, New Hampshire is a dynamic and growing city that combines exciting urban opportunities with nearby natural splendor.

When not on campus, Saint Anselm students often find a second home in nearby Manchester where they can explore local restaurants, shops, and social centers, have a night on the town with friends, go to the movies, see nationally touring music acts at the 15,000-seat Verizon Wireless Arena, or make an excursion to the Mall of New Hampshire.

As the largest city in New Hampshire, Manchester is also home to leading cultural attractions including the Currier Museum of Art, the Palace Theatre, and the New Hampshire Symphony.

Transportation arrangements to and from Saint Anselm can be made at the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, which is serviced by four major airlines and offers many amenities normally found only at major hub airports.
