UNM Housing Tour

Happy Holidays!

Scheduled housing tours will be closed from 12.20 - 12.26, & again 12.31-1.2.22.

See what living on campus is all about.

Seeing our Residence Halls in-person serves as a wonderful way to picture yourself as a UNM student and as a Resident Lobo. Learn more about the individual buildings and their amenities to find the community that would be the best fit for you.


We are excited to announce we are now offering limited IN-PERSON Tours! Our knowledgeable and friendly UNM Housing Ambassadors look forward to presenting our residence halls to you, live and in-person!
