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 will be 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.
