Student Senate and Campus Activities Board
NHTI encourages a democratic form of student government to develop individual initiative and a sense of group responsibility. The Student Senate is responsible for representing the student body in campus affairs and the allocation of funding support for student events and programs. The Senate comprises selected representatives and is responsible for the promotion and coordination of student activities. The Student Senate president and other members represent the student body on various college committees.
Student Life FAQ
Your student ID serves many purposes both on and off campus, such as checking out books from the NHTI Library, accessing the Wellness Center, and using equipment in the student center.
Getting Your First Student ID
- Orientation – When you arrive at Orientation, you’ll be given a schedule that allows you time to have your student ID picture taken. Student IDs are taken in Sweeney Hall.
- Campus Safety Office – If you are unable to get your student ID picture at orientation, visit the Campus Safety office at 1 Institute Drive, on the second floor of the Business/Campus Safety building. You can also visit Sweeney Hall room 214 during normal business hours.
- Evening Students – You can get your student ID by calling Campus Safety at 603-224-3287. An officer will meet you at the Campus Safety office and process your ID.
Validating your ID
Once you have obtained your student ID, it can be validated at the Bursar’s Office, located on the first floor of Sweeney Hall, during normal office hours. A new validation sticker is issued each semester to reflect that you’re currently registered for classes and have made arrangements to pay all tuition and fees.
Replacing Your Student ID
If you need a new student ID for any reason, go to the Campus Safety office, located at 1 Institute Drive. The fee for each replacement is $25.00. This charge is applied to your student account at the Bursar’s Office. You will need to go to the Bursar’s Office to have the replacement ID validated.
We do live in New Hampshire, so it’s possible NHTI classes may be delayed or canceled because of inclement weather. Notifications of cancellations or delays will be done the following ways:
- Through the NHTI Alerts System. You’re encouraged to sign up for free voice, email, and/or text messages through NHTI Alerts system.
- At www.wmur.com or on TV at WMUR Channel 9
- NHTI’s website at www.nhti.edu
- Through limited local radio stations
Procedure for Delayed Start of Classes
You should be prepared to begin your school day with whatever activity you’d normally be doing at the announced opening time. For example, if a two-hour delay is announced, and you’re scheduled for a class that normally meets from 8-10:50 a.m., you should go to that class at 10 a.m. for the remaining 50 minutes; classes that are normally completed before 10 a.m. would be canceled.
You should discuss the situation directly with the person(s) involved. In the event this does not resolve the issue, the matter should be taken directly to the Student Affairs Office, located in the Student Center. The Director of Residence Life should be notified of any unresolved issues pertaining to the Residence Halls and Dining Services. The Student Senate Concerns Committee should be notified of any unresolved concerns that do not directly involve the Residence Halls.
