myNMSU (Housing) - First-Year Housing Exemption
NMSU housing has a requirement for all first-year students, transfer and freshmen, to live on campus. Although this will be mandatory for the majority of first-year students there are some circumstances that warrant an exemption from this requirement. Some of these circumstances may include physical disability, upper-classmen transfer (90 credits +), or living with local family members on or off campus. If you are not sure about the validity of your exemption please contact NMSU campus housing at (575) 646-3202 or through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For NMSU campus housing to confirm if you are or are not exempt from first-year campus placement you must submit an exemption request through the myhousing portal. This document will assist you through this process.
