The UNM Student Union Building (SUB) announces the beginning of the SUB’s two-year, $25-million dollar renovation and construction project. During this time, food service will be offered at 17 sites on campus. The food service sites are located in a “Transitional Food Village” placed throughout UNM’s campus, in the most heavily trafficked areas.

In addition to the adobe-style kiosks, located throughout campus, the Transition Food Village also includes a 300-person tent, known as the “Lobo Lair” that is available for dining and socializing. The tent is climate-tempered and will also be used for student programming events during non-service hours.

The tent is located on Smith Plaza adjacent to the Humanities Building. Located nearby are the Casitas and Higher Grounds food kiosks.
