Move In Fall 2020
We are so glad you will be joining us this fall! Our move-in process is different this year, so if you are a returning resident, please read this carefully.
Check in is by appointment only. Check your UNM email for confirmation of your selected check-in block. If you did not select a date and time before August 6, then you have been assigned one.
All residents will check in via a drive-up process located in the R parking lot at the corner of Girard and Central. Please review the map below. Residents will enter campus from Central, then proceed east on Redondo Drive to the parking lot entrance. You will stop at several stations, which include:
1 - Lobocard - pick up your UNM ID (LoboCard) if you are a new student.
2 - UNM Housing - pick up your room keys, mailbox key and your Welcome to UNM Housing kit.
3 - Parking (PATS) - Pick up your UNM Parking Permit, if you have purchased one. And get your free ABQ Ride (Albuquerque bus system) sticker for your LoboCard, too!
4 - Unload - After leaving the Parking station, you will be given directions to your residence hall to unload. Please remember you may have only one move-in helper with you at a time in the halls, and both you and your helper must wear a mask at all times.
Lobo Rainforest Residents - you will check in on main campus using the same drive-up process.
Lobocards - Your UNM ID / LoboCard serves as your access control for living in UNM Housing, and for accessing your meal plan. If you are new to UNM, please be sure you have uploaded your photo to LoboCard, so they can have your ID printed and ready for pickup. Returning UNM students who have lost their card, or do not have the new card with the imbedded proximity chip will need to contact LoboCard to arrange a replacement.
If you have questions, please contact us at 505-277-2606 or email@example.com

Today, via UNM email, all students who have been assigned a room with RLSH on main campus or at LoboRainforest have received the mid-July communication that has been referred to many times throughout the summer in our previous emails—and contains some important and new information about a) move-in procedures, b) the option to limit interactions and self-monitor for fourteen (14) days in one of our UNM communities, and c) much more about living on campus.
UNM has continued to engage in careful and comprehensive planning in recent weeks as we prepare to reopen our campus and begin the new academic year. Our planning is guided by two fundamental priorities: promoting the health and safety of our entire campus community and ensuring an excellent academic experience for you.

June 8, 2020NEW COVID-19 Safety Measures for Fall 2020 - One Resident per room Trad/Suites; Four Residents per Apartment
Impact on Housing Spaces -- Fall WAITLIST and Exception Requests
The University is developing COVID-19 safety and health guidelines to protect you and other Lobos this fall. To make the recommended social distancing possible in the living environment, we will be assigning only one resident per room in traditional and suite style residence halls, and a maximum of four residents per apartment. Taking these measures to protect student health means that we will have less housing available than usual.
We will first give priority for on-campus housing to first-year students, followed by students who completed the Priority Renewal Registration. Any student who doesn’t meet these criteria will be placed on a waitlist. Once you submit your 2020-2021 housing contract, and it is approved, you will get more information from us via email which will outline more about your status in our assignment process.For additional information regarding the process, waitlist and Exception Requests, see UNM Housing Coronavirus Information page. The deadline for submitting Exception Requests is Sunday June 21, 2020 at 11:59PM.
