New normal greets UNM

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Lobos from out of state spent the weekend getting settled into their new dorm rooms.

The University of New Mexico students now begin a two-week “self-monitoring” period during which they have to take their temperature twice a day, maximize social distancing and avoid shared spaces.

In-state students will join them in the dorms between Aug. 13 and 16.

UNM is planning for a hybrid fall semester in which some instruction will take place in person, but most teaching will happen remotely.

UNM’s reentry plan changes life in the dorms from last year.

Students have their own rooms and are only allowed to have one visitor during the day, and the visitor must live in the same residential hall. Overnight guests are prohibited, and masks must be worn when students are outside of their own room.
