Staying Overnight

For two-day sessions, all students will spend the night in the residence hall, including students who have been exempt from housing during the academic year. Due to the structure of the residence halls, this means sharing a room with another student participating in AWO. Students who feel they cannot spend the night on campus due to religious, personal circumstances, and/or an emergency, please contact the Orientation Specialist, Amanda Madrid at 575-646-5810 in advance of your session to discuss your situation.

  • Comfortable shoes and clothes
  • Bedding (flat sheet, fitted sheet, pillow and blanket)
  • Toiletries (toothbrush, deodorant, wash cloth, soap, etc.)
  • Casual active gear for evening activities 
  • Any medications the student may need

Family and Guest Accommodations

Families and guests are encouraged to stay in area hotels that offer a discounted rate for families and guests of students on orientation days. An overnight stay with students in the residence hall is not permitted.
