Move-In Week

Check back in Spring 2019 for updated details.

Questions? Contact Residence Life and Student Housing 

Here's last year's agenda to give you an idea of how this event works:

Early Arrival: August 11-13, 2018
9 am to 8 pm
Need to get here early? There is a $30 per day early arrival fee (fee is charged to your Bursar’s Account after check-in.) Early arrival must be pre-approved and you must complete the Early Arrival Application through your housing dashboard as soon as possible. Early arrivals can check in at their assigned hall desk and park in designated parking areas. 

RESIDENT LOBO Move-In 2017: August 14-17, 2018
9 am to 8 pm
Resident Lobo Move-In is the optimal yet flexible time for check-in at UNM. Moving carts along with volunteers will be available to help you unload on any of these four days of move-in. Most importantly, designated unloading zone access for your vehicle will be available to ease your move.

During this time, UNM Housing will host UNM departments such as UNM Foods, Parking, and more to answer any last-minute questions. You can also visit with representatives from the UNM Parent Association. Who knows, there might even be a Louie Lobo sighting! 

Weekend Arrival: August 18-19, 2018
9 am to 8 pm

Can’t make it until the weekend? No problem. Park in the designated parking areas and arrive at your assigned hall desk to check in. 

Late Arrivals
If you plan to arrive after 8 pm or on a date later than 8/20 at 5 pm, you must notify Residence Life and Student Housing by emailing  

No Shows
Residents who have not checked in by Monday, August 21 at 5 pm, or notified us of late arrival, will be charged a no-show fee. Please call the Residence Life and Student Housing 24/7 help desk at 505.277.2606 if you are experiencing any special situations that prevent you from arriving at this time.
