Students attending UNM-Los Alamos now have the ability to obtain housing closer to the branch campus thanks to a unique partnership.

UNM-Los Alamos (UNM-LA), the New Mexico Consortium and Plateau Property Management who represent Cap Investors, are entering into a partnership that gives students access to a group of designated apartments at the Ponderosa Pines Apartments for the upcoming academic year. Students interning with the New Mexico Consortium will rent the apartments this summer, then the units will be available to UNM-LA students starting in August.

The Ponderosa Pines Apartments, located at 3000 Trinity Drive next to the Reel Deal Theater, are within walking distance of the UNM-LA campus and are close to a direct bus route.

The agreement includes eight, two-bedroom units and one, three-bedroom unit. All of the units are fully furnished—from furniture to linens to cooking utensils, dish sets and flatware. The complex was recently renovated to include new carpet and tile, new windows and updated bathrooms.

Full-time UNM-LA students who are enrolled in a degree program and in good standing with the university are eligible for the housing. Interested students should contact UNM-LA to verify their eligibility.

Rental agreements for the housing will be through Plateau Property Management. For more information, contact Student Enrollment Director Kathryn Vigil at 505-661-4688 or by email at
