Welcome to New Mexico Junior College Housing and Residence Life! Your "NMJC Home" away from home! We believe on-campus living provides both an enjoyable and rewarding experience in community living as well as the necessary support for academic success.
At NMJC, residence halls are not just a place to eat and sleep; they are an integral part of college life. NMJC provides full-time students, carrying 12 or more semester hours, with modern, comfortable and affordable housing. Living in a residence hall provides the opportunity to meet new friends and associate with other students from diverse backgrounds. In the process, students grow and develop as people, capable of taking on the responsibilities of living with others.
Currently, NMJC has 4 residential housing facilities, including both traditional dormitories as well as apartments, with a total capacity of housing 385 students. Residence halls are furnished and air-conditioned, providing a comfortable living environment. Each residence hall features Wi-Fi access, computer access, basic cable, vending machines and access to on-site laundry facilities. In addition, multiple spaces are set aside for socializing and studying. All buildings at NMJC, including residence halls, are smoke-free. Residential staff reside in the facility and help students adjust to college life.
NMJC provides trained campus security 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The housing complex is a gated community with key card access. In addition, each room is secured with key card locks.
