Voters approve bond issue for new UNM-Valencia building

By a near 2-1 margin, the voters of Valencia County and Northern Socorro County recently approved issuing $5 million in general obligation bonds. The funds will allow the UNM-Valencia Campus to build a 20,000 square foot academic building.

The bond will also cover funding for expanding the student services/administration office complex by 5,000 square feet, as well as provide general site and facility renewal.

The bond election passed with 585 voting for and 307 opposing.

The new academic building will include several computer labs and general classrooms. It will also include two anatomy and physiology labs to enhance health sciences programs at the campus.

The new building will be built directly west of the current academic building. An additional parking lot west of the Learning Resource Center is also planned.

This new instructional facility is part of the campus master plan and allows the campus to keep up with current and projected enrollment increases.
