Campus Community

PSU Students

Plymouth’s positive, high-energy environment, deeply committed faculty, and strong network of support systems make it the perfect place to find your niche–academically, socially, and professionally.

Residential Life
You’ll find that here at Plymouth, living on campus proves to be a learning experience equal to that which you’ll experience in your academic major. You’ll have the opportunity to live among people with diverse personalities, backgrounds and values — an opportunity that will most definitely help you develop critical life skills.

Dining Services
Managed by Sodexo, dinging services at Plymouth State offers options to students at Commons Cafe (inside Lamson Learning Commons), the Union Grille and Sidewalk Cafe (located inside the Hartman Union Building), the Woods Cafe and Prospect Dining Hall.

Health Services
Health Services at PSU can assist you with all your health needs while you’re away from home:

  • Allergy immunizations
  • Reproductive health clinic
  • Laboratory and radiology services
  • Orthopedic clinic
  • Cold clinic
  • Medical clinic
  • Pill checks
  • Advice and counseling

Wellness Center
In addition to Health Services, PSU also has a Wellness Center that can assist you with living a healthy, happy life at your home away from home:

  • Stress management
  • Quitting smoking
  • Sexual health
  • Basic nutrition
  • Exercise/fitness
  • Alcohol
  • Communication

Campus Life
Whether you’re looking for sports and fitness, student organizations, Greek life, or student activities, the Hartman Union Building and the PE Center are always bustling with activity. If a quiet place to study or read a book is more your style, Lamson Learning Commons or one of the various student lounges would suit you well.

Campus Safety
Our University Police Department does a great job at keeping the Plymouth State Campus safe. We also offer safe walks across campus every Thursday – Saturday night from 10 pm – 2 am. So, you never need to feel alone.

The university maintains a shuttle service that makes regular stops around campus and into the town of Plymouth (including Wal*Mart). During ski season, local ski areas even run shuttles directly to the slopes!

Concord Trailways offers transportation north and south of the University, and Greater Laconia Transit Agency offers a service to Laconia, NH.

More About Erica

Why did you choose to come to Plymouth State?

“I chose Plymouth State because the University is close to my hometown and I love the look and feel the campus. Plymouth is the perfect size, it has a great business program, which is my major, and I love the surroundings around the campus, the skiing and hiking.”

What do you like best about your major/academic program?

“The thing that I like best about the business department and classes that I take is that a lot of the teachers are very friendly and approachable. Even if I am taking a class in a lecture hall the teachers still get to know you and will recognize you when they see you outside the classroom.”

What activities are you involved in outside of class?

“Outside of class I am a member and the vice president of Women’s rugby, I am a member of MAPS (which stands for Marketing Association of Plymouth State) I am an admission rep (so I give tours of campus) and I work on the Rec. Programs marketing team. At work I work with other students to maintain Rec. Programs Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and we take pictures and videos of all the events and intramural sports that Rec. Programs run.”

How have you changed since you first arrived at PSU?

“I have changed a lot since I started attending PSU. In high school I was very quiet when talking to people and not very outgoing. Since then I have become very outgoing and gained self confidence. Everything that I have done while at Plymouth State has helped to build my self confidence.”
