Completed in 2011, Chamisa Village Phase II, which was designed by Steinberg Architects, has two- and four- bedroom units for 282 students and faculty. The complex creates a new gateway to campus that supports the university’s goal to provide programmed courtyards and exterior social space for students and faculty.

Former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson signed an executive order in 2006 requiring all future state-funded building projects exceeding 15,000 square feet to meet LEED Silver standards.

Chamisa Village Phase II features recycled insulation and an advanced water-collection and irrigation system, among several other green features.
