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. A designated portion of Tom Fort Village in Student Family Housing is set aside to create the student veteran community.

Interested student veterans need to apply in person at the Housing & Residential Life office. The Housing & Residential Life Office is located in Corbett Center Student Union and is open Monday through Friday, from 8pm-5pm. A veteran status identification and picture ID are also required at the time of application.

For more information or to set an appointment, please contact our office at 575-646-3202.
