Located on the campus of Saint Anselm College, the Institute is housed in a 20,000-square-foot facility that contains a state-of-the-art auditorium, a fully equipped television studio, a research center, multimedia classrooms, seminar rooms, academic offices, a computer lab, and the Common Ground Café. The facility is regularly used by community organizations such as the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, AARP New Hampshire, American Legion, political groups, and high schools.

In 2010, the New Hampshire Political Library relocated to the Institute, merging two of New Hampshire's great political organizations. A number of the Political Library's board members joined the Institute's board. They continue to carry on the mission and traditions of the library that was founded by Gov. Hugh Gregg and Secretary of State William Gardner to provide programming and exhibits associated with New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation presidential primary.

If you are a student, scholar, politician, or interested community member, we invite you to take part in the many programs and events at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics.
