Meal Plan Requirement

First-year freshmen, residing on main campus (Casas del Rio or UNM Housing), must purchase a meal plan.

If a freshmen resident does not choose a meal plan, the default meal plan – the Lobo 15 weekly plan – will charged to the student's Bursar account 1 week before the first day of school.
