Find out more information about these Master Plan Implementation Projects we are working on:
Student Housing: The current UNM Master Plan Framework makes the recommendation for additional housing on the Central and South Campuses. Lobo Development Corporation (LDC) has entered into a public/private partnership with American Campus Communities (ACC) to develop new student housing for UNM.
Student Housing Outreach Workshops (SHOW): LDC has launched a series of workshops to explore the expansion of undergraduate student housing on the Central Campus. Join the LDC listserv to receive the most up-to-date information on student housing.
Transportation: UNM recognizes that it's connectivity to the city and the region begins with easy access for students, but also broadens to consider our responsibilities and commitment to carbon neutral goals. To begin to address this and other transit issues, UNM has teamed with the City of Albuquerque, Bernalillo County, CNM and the Mid-Region Council of Governments (MRCOG) to implement the 2009 Strategic Transportation Plan.
Currently UNM is working with MRGOG to collect data on UNM's transit needs to being an Alternative Analysis Study for transit for the Albuquerque Metro Area.

Campus Wayfinding: The 2009 Master Plan recommends a comprehensive wayfinding system as essential for the success of the University. Wayfinding involves the development of a consistent vocabulary of design and materials, including signs, to function as university branding and the cohesive visual identity of the campus(es). Wayfinding is an important aspect of experiencing the campus for students & visitors, pedestrians & vehicular traffic. Find out more about Wayfinding & Signage.
South Campus Placemaking Plan: Placemaking is about creating great places that capitalize on a community's assets, inspirations and potential. A Placemaking Plan is more detailed that a master plan but less prescriptive than design standards. The UNM South Campus Placemaking Plan:
Land Use Planning: Long range development and conservation planning.
The Master Plan designates major land uses that drive future capital project locations, landscape, infrastructure, and/or major capital projects. While land use planning provides project implementation guidance, each new capital project must plan for and justify particular site use and development.
