Winter/Summer Interim Housing Options
Summer Session 2021 Now open!
Taking a Summer class? Need housing for the Summer? You can live on campus! Our Summer options are perfect for students taking courses over the summer. We offer apartment-style living in Student Residence Center (SRC) Apartments with the same great amenities you are used to during the regular terms.
For those students already living with us and living with us again in the fall, you are eligible to live on campus for the summer as long as you are already enrolled for Fall 2021, even if you’re not taking classes this summer.
Winter Intersession Housing Click To Apply Now!
Winter Break for the 2020-2021 Academic Year is December 12, 2020 - January 16, 2021.
During the Winter Break, RLSH traditional halls are closed; residents of our traditional halls who wish to stay on campus during the winter break must apply for Winter Intercession Housing. This includes residents of Alvarado, Coronado, DeVargas, Hokona, Laguna, and Santa Clara.
Winter Intersession Housing Applications are now available on your housing dashboard, if you are an RLSH traditional hall resident. Register now; the deadline to register is 11:59 pm on Tuesday, December 8, 2020.
The rate for Winter Intersession Housing is $459, which will be charged to residents’ UNM Bursars account the week of December 14.
Residents approved to stay during the Winter Intersession will receive email communication of their assigned move in date and time slot, scheduled December 9 through December 11. Traditional halls close on Saturday, December 12, 2020.
Winter residents will receive an email with an assigned date and time to move back to their traditional hall assignment prior to Spring halls opening January 11. These assigned dates and times are absolutely required, and all winter residents will need to plan accordingly, to adhere to their assigned move in and move back dates.
If approved to stay for winter intercessions, residents may cancel their approved Winter Intersession assignments through Friday December 11, 2020, at 5:00pm, with no penalty. Starting December 12, 2020, any resident who checks in, and cancels their approved winter housing will be charged the whole amount of $459.
Note: This does not apply to RLSH apartment residents on main campus or Lobo Rainforest, nor to Casas del Rio or Lobo Village residents.
Why do the traditional halls close during the winter break?
Heating large buildings can be very expensive! Since so many students leave during the break, it is cost-effective and energy efficient to shut down the traditional halls during the break.
