Targeted Interventional COVID-19 Testing for Lobos


As part of our Return to Full Operations, the University of New Mexico has established a COVID-19 testing program to help keep our community safe and minimize the risk on campus.

Who Can Use the Testing Site?

The testing site will be available for symptomatic students or students potentially exposed on campus, and who have been directed to obtain testing by SHAC or via email communication from UNM. Individuals will be selected for testing and be advised to schedule an appointment through a phone call from SHAC or an email. There will be no walk up appointments, and only those invited will be allowed to participate.

Individuals selected for testing will be identified in large part through the daily symptom screening or from self-reporting or through the Interventional Rapid Response Task Force (IRRTF) process. All members of the UNM community are reminded that they are required to reply to the daily screening emails and to follow UNM’s COVID-19 self-reporting requirements as well as all COVID-19 safety-related policies and practices.


A mobile testing site will be set up in “C” lot, on the corner of Las Lomas and Redondo Dr., west of Dane Smith Hall (click here for a Google Maps link to the location).

Limited parking will be available for people coming for tests; please enter from Redondo Dr. as indicated by the red arrows in the picture below. Once you have parked, join the waiting area indicated by the yellow arrows in the picture below. Staff will be on hand to direct you to the correct location and answer any questions.
