Residence Life & Student Housing

Did you Know? In recent studies, students who live on campus get better grades than students who choose to live off campus.


 UNM Facts

UNM Residence Life & Student Housing is the official housing for UNM students. Our halls are designed to promote academic success, connecting our nearly 2,000 residents to campus activities and resources, empowering them to become well-rounded, engaged students. Our seven residence halls include traditional, suite and apartment style living and are located close to everything students need, including classes, food, Zimmerman Library and Johnson Recreation Center. For UNM students with families, we offer Student Family Housing, one to three-bedroom apartments and townhomes that offer a gated community with play areas, a community center and special programming for our student parents.

Mission

To foster inclusive, community-based living environments consciously designed for our residents’ personal growth and academic success in well-maintained facilities.

Vision

Get connected. Be engaged. Live on campus.
