Welcome to Southern New Hampshire University, home of the Penmen! Alongside the many different academic opportunities at SNHU, there are plenty of opportunities for athletes, as well as people itching to watch an intense game.

SNHU is an NCAA Division II institution that plays in the Northeast-10 conference. We are home to eight men’s sports teams and eleven women’s teams that continuously prove to be some of the best in the region. During the 2017-2018 school year, women’s soccer captured their second Northeast-10 conference title, while men’s tennis claimed their third straight Northeast-10 title. Baseball captured their first NCAA East Regional Championship Title since 2012 and finished as semifinalists in the NCAA National Division II Championship.

All home soccer, field hockey, lacrosse games and women’s track meets are held at SNHU’s Penmen Stadium. Penmen Stadium features a track and field, six tennis courts and a 1,500-seat stadium. It also provides dedicated space for team locker rooms, athletic training, strength training and coaches offices. The stadium also features a modern video board where game highlights and coverage are displayed. In addition to this, Penmen Stadium offers food concession stands that are available during games. Penmen Stadium replaces Larkin Field near the front entrance of campus, but practices will continue to take place there.

Men’s and women’s basketball and women’s volleyball games will be held at the “Stan Spirou Field House” at the main athletic complex next to Larkin Field. Baseball and softball games are held at the Baseball and Softball Penmen Fields behind the Windsor and Hampton Residence Halls on the east side of campus. Men’s Ice Hockey is the lone sport played off-campus. All home games are at the Ice Den in Hooksett, which is only five minutes off campus.
