Social Services

NMSU Social Services at NMSU are available to students to assist in meeting needs and overcoming barriers to reaching educational goals
Many college students have encountered times of hardship where they did not have enough resources to meet their needs and did not know where to go to find help. Those resources could be anything from basic needs, such as food, shelter, or health care, to issues such as finding childcare, financial assistance, counseling, or legal aid.  NMSU students attending the main campus are eligible for services which are free and confidential,  irregardless of immigration status.

The Social Services Center is located in the Aggie Health and Wellness Center.

Contact: Meg Long, Program Specialist-Social Services at the Student Health Center 575-646-6854,
