Welcome to the Whittemore Center Arena
The Whittemore Center is a multi-purpose arena located at the University of New Hampshire's Durham campus. The arena is home to the UNH Wildcats Hockey.
The University of New Hampshire dedicated the arena to Frederick B. Whittemore and his family on May 5, 1996, in recognition of their outstanding contributions. The Whittemore family has a long history of service to the state of New Hampshire and to its university. Frederick B. Whittemore's father, Laurence, served as a trustee of the University System of New Hampshire from 1944 to 1960 and president of the board from 1954 to 1960. A visionary and philanthropist, Frederick B. Whittemore is a founding director of the UNH Foundation. The Whittemore Family Foundation's generous contribution to this facility exemplifies the family's ongoing commitment to education through support for academic programs and student life.
