Construction of the new UNM College of Nursing/College of Population Health building to begin July 5

June 23, 2022

UNM Parking & Transportation Services (UNM PATS) would like to inform you that construction of the new UNM College of Nursing/College of Population Health building will begin July 5 and has an expected completion date of December 2023. The 93,740 gross square foot building will be located on UNM’s north campus, just west of building 200-Domenici Center in what is currently referred to as the “M-Family Practice” Lot.


Steps will be taken by the construction team to help mitigate potential traffic and access issues in the affected area(s). UNM PATS and/or HSC will send out notifications periodically to departments and permit holders informing you of additional changes, utility outages, parking lot and/or road closures.


Here is what you need to know:


Road Closures

  • Construction laydown areas, which will change as the construction phases progress, will dictate how vehicles will enter the M-Family Practice and M-Dental parking Lots. More information will be disseminated in the coming months.


Parking Impact

  • All of the parking spaces in the M-Family Practice Lot will eventually be impacted by this project as the construction goes through its phases.
  • A construction fence will be installed restricting access around the construction/laydown area.
  • Reserved parking customers impacted will be contacted by UNM PATS regarding the new location of their reserved space within the next week via email and phone.


Shuttle Service

  • UNM PATS shuttles are not anticipated to be affected by this project, however there may be some traffic congestion issues in the immediate area.
  • During construction, UNMH shuttle riders will experience slight delays and/or route changes within the M-Family Practice Lot.
