Navajo Nation Student Housing

Navajo President and AmbassadorsAre you a Navajo student attending UNM? The Navajo Nation has partnered with the University of New Mexico to offer financial support for your housing costs. Navajo Nation Student Housing at UNM Residence Life & Student Housing is located in the beautiful Lobo Rainforest, UNM's newest housing facility.

Navajo Nation students will pay a cost sharing fee of $189 per month ($945 per fall/spring semester, $378 for summer). Fees go toward the Navajo Nation and are not retained for UNM use. Navajo students will be placed on a first come, first served basis this spring so we encourage you to apply as soon as possible. 


How to Register
