Housing Registration FAQ's (click for answers)

Answer

Yes. Completing your registration process for housing is a binding agreement. So please understand the obligations, penalties and cancellation policies before you submit. Your terms and conditions, cancellations policies and costs will be provided during your registration process.

Answer

Yes. There is a $50 non-refundable application fee.

Answer

Your registration fee will be conveniently billed directly to your student account. It is not necessary to pay it at the time of application.

Answer

We will contact you at a later date when your room selection period begins. Room selection is first-come, first-served. Please be sure to check your UNM email and your Residence Dashboard for those important dates!

Answer

Of Residence Life & Student Housing's total spaces, we have less than 200 single and deluxe single rooms available in our traditional halls and suites. These rooms are typically reserved for returning residents as well as ADA accessibility needs. Therefore, a very limited number of singles are available for freshmen. We encourage you to register as early as possible to select your room of choice. Our apartments in RVA and SRC are a great option, with the privacy of a single room and shared communal kitchen and living area.

Answer

Yes. You will be able to select your roommate at a later date after you register. We will provide you with information on when and how to select your roommate. Don't have a roommate? You will be able to identify one through the roommate selection process or we will place you with the best match indicated through a series of questions asked in your registration process.

Answer

You must have a Net ID prior to registering for housing. If you have been admitted to the University but have not yet set up a Net ID, please visit the IT Website prior to registering for your housing. Also visit the FAQ page for Net ID information.

Answer

Your registration can be reopened and placed in draft mode so that it is editable. However this will change your submissions and will impact your priority in the selection process, so please be careful when making your selections and be sure to review your registration before it is submitted. For specific questions or requests, please contact assignments@unm.edu. Not sure where you want to live yet? Explore our halls here or come for a tour!

Answer

Yes. You can save your registration as a draft and return to it later. But don't forget to finish to be considered for housing!
