Single Student Housing

All students whose permanent homes are outside the tri-county (Grant, Luna, Hidalgo) area and who register for fall semester as full-time students with less than 32 credit hours are required to live in WNMU residence halls for the full academic year.

Students who have a permanent home address in the tri-county (Grant, Luna, Hidalgo) area or who are 21 years of age or older are exempt from this requirement, if residing at their permanent address.

Anyone residing in WNMU Residence Halls is required to purchase a meal plan unless special permission is granted by the Director of Residence Life/Housing. Only persons officially registered as full-time students (12 credit hours) may reside in the WNMU residence halls, unless special permission (due to unusual circumstances) is granted by the Director of Residence Life.

Application

Applications for single student housing may be obtained through the Admissions Office or the Residence Life Office. All applications for WNMU housing must be made on official WNMU application forms and returned to the Residence Life Office. Each applicant must obtain admission to WNMU from the Director of Admissions before the housing application is considered complete. Completion of the housing application does not guarantee the applicant residence hall space, but does assure the applicant of a place on the waiting list. Notification of reserved space will be sent to the applicant by the Residence Life Office when rooming assignments have been completed.

Requests for single rooms are not guaranteed and are assigned only when space is available.

Resident Responsibility

  • Students are encouraged to carry their own personal property insurance, as neither WNMU nor the State of New Mexico will assume responsibility to acquire or extend family insurance to cover their belongings, if such coverage is desired.
  • WNMU prohibits the keeping of firearms and pets in residence halls and family student housing.
  • WNMU reserves the right to inspect the rooms in any residence halls or apartment at any time for health and other reasons

WNMU shall assume no responsibility for theft, destruction, or loss of money, valuables, or other personal property belonging to or in the custody of the student for any cause whatsoever, whether such losses occur in the studentís room, in storage rooms, in public areas, elsewhere in the halls, or in baggage handling related to shipment or storage.
