New Student Orientation

Congratulations on your acceptance to The University of New Mexico! We are excited to welcome you as one of the newest members of our Pack!
To help you get acquainted with UNM, all incoming students complete an orientation program that provides them with the opportunity to learn about campus resources, make connections with faculty and staff, and register for courses.
Considering students enter UNM with diverse knowledge and experiences, we offer a variety of NSO options that are tailored for each student. When you sign-in to our reservation system, you will automatically be directed to the orientation program that was designed for your admitted student type. Click on the admitted student types below to learn more about the orientation you will need to complete before registering for your courses.

Universal Design for Learning

As we switch to all-online orientation, we want to ensure our program meets the needs of all learners.  If you anticipate any barriers, including access to technology or academic accessibility, please let us know so we can modify our delivery.

📣  Orientation Update!

PLEASE NOTE!!! Due to COVID-19, we all have been impacted in some way and are now doing things a little different than before for the health and well-being of our communities. New Student Orientation is no exception and we are committed to doing our part to help ‘flatten the curve’ and slow the spread of the virus.
The concept of getting something 'to-go' and enjoying it from home dates back to antiquity! This summer, UNM is embracing this idea and will be offering NSO...To-Go!
Although orientation will be conducted remotely this summer, our commitment to having a positive impact on the OrientationTransition & Retention of our newest Lobos is unchanged!
