Students are permitted to move into the residence hall on the day prior to the first day of classes at noon, unless otherwise determined by NHTI. A student must be in residence no later than the first day of class unless the student gives prior notice of late arrival. Failure to give such notice, or failure to remain in residence during the academic year (unless excused by NHTI), may result in the loss of space originally reserved for the student. In case of loss of space for the above reasons, or termination of contract by NHTI, the student shall be held responsible for the Administrative Release of Contract fee.
NHTI reserves the right to assign and reassign any student during the length of contract. Assigned rooms may not be occupied prior to the day of the resident’s academic registration for each semester. The room charge is based on normal room occupancy; therefore, NHTI reserves the right to reassign any student without a roommate if he or she is unable to find a roommate of his or her own choice.
A resident student meal plan is required to live in the halls. Check out our Dining Services section of the website to learn more about the meal plans and dining on campus. Residence halls and the cafeteria are closed during holiday periods and as indicated on the Residence Life Calendar. Students are not allowed to live in the residence halls during these periods.
No student is to use or permit his or her room to be used for any commercial purpose. The sale of goods or services will be permitted only upon the written approval of the Vice President of Student Affairs. No permit will be granted to a person not registered as a student.
If belongings remain in the room after a student has vacated, NHTI reserves the right to dispose of such belongings.
NHTI assumes no responsibility for the loss or damage to a resident’s personal property. NHTI suggests that students consider purchasing insurance to cover loss or to extend parent’s insurance for this purpose.
NHTI reserves the right to use public areas of the residence hall for any purpose deemed necessary.

No structure is to be constructed in or for a room. Permissible furnishings brought by students include the following: small couch, stereo stand, small coffee table or night stand, bookshelf, or drafting table.

There are common single sex bathrooms on each floor of the residence halls. They are all equipped with multiple standard bathroom facilities as well as one handicap facility.
Students using the kitchen area must clean the area after each use. Additionally, trash from student rooms is not to be placed in kitchen trash bins. Students are responsible for taking their trash out to the dumpsters.
Each residence hall is equipped with laundry facilities. The machines are coin operated. Ironing is permitted in the laundry room on the ironing boards provided. Students are reminded to bring their own irons.
Mail is delivered Monday-Friday by the Resident Assistants or other staff members. Each student has a mailbox in their residence hall. Mail should be addressed in the following way:
- Your Name
- Your Residence Hall
- NHTI, Concord's Community College
- 31 College Drive
- Concord, NH 03301-7412
NHTI will not accept COD mail unless arrangements for payment are made with the Stock Clerk III prior to the arrival of the package. Outgoing U.S. mail may be deposited in the mailbox located on the north side of Sweeney Hall.
Large numbers of people living together often create noise and general disturbances inside and outside the residence areas. All must consider the other residents and must honor the request of any resident or staff member when asked that loud noises (radios, TVs, etc.) be turned down.
Quiet Study Rooms
In each residence hall, there are study lounges with tables, desks, chairs, etc. Students should be considerate of each other when studying in these areas. Students may use the Quiet Study Rooms at any time.
Courtesy hours are from 8 p.m. - 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 p.m. - 12 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Courtesy hours are designed to allow those who wish to study or sleep during this time the opportunity to do so without undue interruption.
Quiet Hours are from 10 p.m. - 10 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and 12 a.m. - 10 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Quiet hours are designed to be a time when the residence hall is extremely quiet to allow for studying and sleeping. There should be no excessive noise at other times. Students who violate the quiet hour policy may face disciplinary action. Continued violations emanating from excessive volume may result in confiscation of equipment. No parties, socials or gatherings that would be disturbing to other residents of the hall will be allowed in the residence halls during mid-semester test week or finals week.
Each of the residence halls is equipped with some recreational equipment which is available to resident students. Use of this equipment requires that students take an active role in preventing damage or abuse to the facilities or equipment.
Ping pong, foosball and pool tables are available in each hall for student use. Students should contact a Hall Council member to sign out equipment. Resident students must forfeit their ID card as collateral for the equipment.
Telephone, Internet and Cable Service
Internet connections and cable television service are provided to each residence hall room through Comcast without additional charge. Cable television service is also provided to all residence hall lounges. There are public telephones available on each floor for student use. Most rooms are equipped with phone jacks if you would like a phone in your room. This should be something you discuss with your roommate. If you are interested in a phone for your room, you can call Verizon at (800) 870-9999 to arrange service after you arrive on campus. This would be an independent contract you enter into with Verizon. NHTI assumes no responsibility in this matter.
