PA S S P O R T UNM HOUSING MOVE-IN GUIDE 2017


1 WELCOME! You are officially a Resident Lobo! In this interactive booklet you will find helpful information to make moving into your residence hall a smooth transition. Please print a copy and bring this guide with you to move in.

BE FOR E YOU M OV E I N First things first! There are a few helpful things you should do before you come to campus.

1.

Contact your roommate. Get acquainted and decide who will be bringing what to avoid two of everything. Log into your housing dashboard for more information about roommate information.

2.

Start getting involved! You don’t have to wait until you arrive to get to know us. Join us on Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest to get to know Residence Life, or join your hall’s private group page on Facebook.

3.

Make sure your immunization is up to date. Visit with your doctor to find out more information on appropriate vaccinations before coming to college. Visit UNM Student Health & Counseling for more information.

4.

Consider purchasing property insurance. Many homeowner policies cover student property, or you may purchase additional coverage to minimize any financial impact from theft, fire, etc.

5.

Get your parking pass for the academic year online. Parking passes will be available for purchase beginning Thursday, July 27, 2017 at 7:30 am for residents. For more information visit pats.unm.edu.

6.

You will need your UNM ID in order to check in at Move-In. You should have received this at your orientation but visit the Lobo Card Office if you need a replacement.

3 WH E N T O G E T H E R E EARLY ARRIVAL: AUGUST 12-14 9 AM TO 8 PM Need to get here early? There is a $30 per day early arrival fee (fee is charged to your Bursar’s Account after check-in.) You must complete the Early Arrival Application as soon as possible, located in your housing dashboard. Early arrivals can check in at their assigned hall desk and park in designated parking areas. (More on that later in the guide.) RESIDENT LOBO MOVE-IN 2017: AUGUST 15-18 9 AM TO 8 PM Resident Lobo Move-In is the optimal yet flexible time for check-in at UNM. Moving carts along with volunteers will be available to help you unload on any of these four days of move-in. Most importantly, designated unloading zone access for your vehicle will be available to ease your move. During this time, UNM Housing will host UNM departments such as UNM Foods, Parking, and more in the SRC Commons to answer any last-minute questions. Who knows, there might even be a Louie Lobo sighting! WEEKEND ARRIVAL: AUGUST 19-20 9 AM TO 8 PM Can’t make it until the weekend? No problem. Park in the designated parking areas and arrive to your assigned hall desk to check in. Arriving after 8 pm? Go to the Housing Dashboard and complete your after hours arrival application so we know when to expect you.

NO S HOWS Residents who have not checked in by Monday, August 21 at 5 pm, or notified us of late arrival, will be charged a no-show fee. Please call our 24/7 Help Desk at 505.277.2606 if you are experiencing any special situations that prevent you from arriving at this time.

UNM HOUSING MOVE-IN GUIDE 2017


4 PAR KIN G DU R I N G M OV E - I N A temporary unloading parking permit will be provided to you when you arrive at the tent located at the sidewalk access or “Pedway.” (See map.) Please only use the unloading zones to drop off your belongings. Please park briefly, unload your items and then move your car to a residential parking area to complete your check-in process or to unpack your room.

PE DWAY AC C E S S The Pedway is the main sidewalk that runs through the Residence Life area, beginning at the Redondo Road roundabout running west to the Social Sciences building (note the green arrow on the map). The Pedway is set up as an unloading zone during Resident Lobo Move-In. Unloading zones are not for checking in, unpacking your room or other campus errands: •Enter on the east end from the roundabout. Look for the check-in tent. •Stop at the check-in tent to obtain your 30 minute unloading permit. •Pedway speed limit is 5 mph. •The Pedway is ONE-WAY ONLY. Drive west and park on the right hand side to unload. •Exit at the west end of the Pedway near the Social Sciences building. During Resident Lobo Move-In, residents are allowed to park in the residence hall “R” parking lots as well as the Lomas structure “S” parking lots without a parking pass until classes begin August 21. Residents who plan to park on campus regularly, however, should purchase a permit from UNM Parking & Transportation Services as soon as possible. Residential Parking Areas (“R” lots) for move-in include:

•Parking lot between Hokona Hall and LDV Complex

•Parking lot east of Coronado Hall

•Parking lot east of Redondo Village Apartments

•Parking lot south of the SRC Apartments

9 A DV ICE FR O M R E S I D E N T L OB O S Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. It’s okay to go to new club meetings or social events by yourself because you’ll definitely leave with a new friend. Emily M., RVA Resident

Leave your door open to new opportunities (literally and metaphorically). Meet your neighbors, say hi to people in the hallways, help your roommate and your neighbors move in. The more people you meet, the more friends you’ll make! Tim C., Hokona Resident

“Getting involved is the best strategy to learning new skills or making new friends. Try something new out, you’ll never know where it’ll take you.” Sab M., SRC Resident

Some life-saving items- in the traditional halls it is always handy to have a water pitcher and a single serve coffee maker. You won’t have to go back and forth to the water fountain for water, and it is cost and time efficient to make coffee from your room. Invite all your friends to your hall and have a coffee and tea hangout! Second, it may be hard the first few weeks transitioning into college life and getting used to being away from home. The best way to help with homesickness is to talk to family back home frequently, but also become engaged in activities with new friends. Rebekah B., Hokona Resident
