A variety of affordable and convenient on-campus housing options are available to students with families. From individual houses with yards to townhouses and apartments, these neighborhoods offer great amenities and close proximity to Preciado park with playground equipment and picnic areas.

Living Learning Communities

Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are groups of students who live together in the residence halls based upon common interests – and they’’re a fabulous way to get connected on campus! More than just social opportunities, LLCs have peer advisors and residential mentors working with each group to provide academic support.

There’’s no extra cost to live in an LLC, but the benefits are huge!– Data has proven that LLCs increase students’ satisfaction at school and in Residence Halls, increase the chance of them graduating within four years and also increase their interaction with faculty.

Graduate Housing

The needs of graduate students are different from those of undergraduates, that is why we have a distinguished Graduate and International Student Community with your needs specifically in mind. Graduate Housing is a place where graduate students will live with and near other graduate students in a community of diverse individuals who share similar academic or social interests.

International Student Housing

Our International Student Community was designed to specifically cater to the unique needs of our international student population. International Student Housing is a place where international students will live with and near other international and graduate students in a community of diverse individuals who share similar academic and social interests.

Student Veterans

New Mexico State University is the first and only university in the nation to offer on-campus housing specifically designated for student veterans and their families transitioning out of the military and into student life. The Department of Housing & Residential Life has worked in conjunction with the Student Veterans’ Association of NMSU to offer affordable housing on campus to student veterans attending the university full time.
