This is where it all began. The iconic Alumni Hall was the first building on campus and has seen many changes in its 130-year history. Today, it houses administrative offices, classrooms, the Modern Languages and Literatures Department, the Chapel Art Center as well as student housing.
Home to the college’s sciences, Goulet Science Center features a lecture hall with advanced multimedia technology, a reading room, computer center, greenhouse, and modern labs with specialized equipment for each of the departments of biology, chemistry, physics, and psychology.
The dynamic hub of Anselmian life, the Jean Student Center is where students gather. Inside you will find several student services, a lounge and study areas, an auditorium, a café with Starbucks, a function room, and the college’s bookstore.
Fondly known as JOA to our students, Joan of Arc Hall is a larger, traditional style residence hall for first-year women. Other residence halls for first-year females include Baroody Hall and Alumni Hall. First-year males typically reside in Dominic Hall and Saint Mary Hall.
Great shows and conversations happen in the 575-seat Koonz Theatre in the Dana Center, where dozens of performances and lectures are presented annually. It is also home to the student theater group, the Anselmian Abbey Players.
A multi-purpose facility with basketball, volleyball, racquetball, tennis courts and a 9,000-square-foot fitness center, the Carr Center also houses the administrative offices for coaches and Athletics staff members. Stoutenburgh Gymnasium is home to the basketball and volleyball teams as well as the brand-new Salamone Family Athletics Hall of Fame space, dedicated in February 2020.
Considered the heart of campus, the Abbey Church is a peaceful place for prayer and reflection in accordance with your own beliefs. The monks of Saint Anselm Abbey hold Mass and Liturgy of the Hours in the church daily.
Another favorite spot among students, the Coffee Shop and Pub offers a variety of food and beverage options throughout the day. It’s a great spot to catch up with friends, discuss a project with a professor, or try your hand at pub trivia. When it’s warm and sunny, grab your sunglasses, your friends, and a table on the deck to enjoy a casual lunch outside.
At the New Hampshire Institute of Politics, our students have unparalleled opportunities to be in the front row of a democratic process. It’s home to two television studios, an auditorium, classroom space, a library, faculty offices, and a café.
