First-Year Residence Hall Communities

Located close to Corbett Center Student Union, NMSU Bookstore, and academic classes, our traditional residence halls all offer furnished, suite-style rooms, large lobbies and plenty of outdoor space. Each residence hall has its own personality and environment, offering a variety of choices while providing all the amenities, social interaction, and academic support that students need. All residence halls are available exclusively to first-year residents.
