UNM West Campus
The first building as part of the University of New Mexico's (UNM) West campus located in Rio Rancho's downtown City Center
opened and began serving students on January 19, 2010.
The address for UNM West is 2600 College Boulevard Rio Rancho, NM 87144.
This first 42,0000-square-foot building as part of Phase 1 of the project has classroom space, a small bookstore, a common area and office space for student support.
This two-story building is a half mile from CNM's first Rio Rancho campus building, with a new road connecting both buildings.

On March 4, 2008, voters in Rio Rancho passed by a 63 percent margin a higher education initiative that added a ¼ of one percent gross receipts tax increase. With its passage, this initiative will generate funds to help the University of New Mexico with infrastructure and land improvements to build a University of New Mexico West campus in Rio Rancho’s downtown City Center on 200 acres of land the university already owns.
