What is The Cottages of New Mexico?
The Cottages of New Mexico is the newest, resort-style student neighborhood near the University of New Mexico campus. We offer four- and five-bedroom homes in a variety of floor plans and styles. We are currently leasing for the fall semester. The Cottages is a gated community located between Gibson and Sunport. We are only three miles from UNM and just minutes away from Buffalo Wild Wings, Fuddrucker's, Dion’s and Applebee’s!
Why did you choose to do business in Albuquerque?
The Cottages of New Mexico came to Albuquerque with the goal of bringing something new and exciting to UNM and CNM students. Albuquerque tends to be a commuter city, and with all the traveling, students tend to miss out on the college lifestyle. We hope to give them the college experience, both socially and academically, while still allowing them to live in the comfort of their very own home.
How would you define your position within the marketplace or within your market segment?
In the past few years, New Mexico has seen an increase in student housing, but what The Cottages offers is vastly unique. Not only do we give students their own two-story homes rather than apartments, we also allow pets, furniture options and co-ed living. We house freshmen through graduate students, as well as CNM and UNM students, which sets us apart from other housing communities in the area.
What amenities do you offer at The Cottages?
Our 10,500-sq. ft. clubhouse is filled with free amenities including: saunas, steam rooms, tanning beds, a two-story state-of-the-art fitness center, a fully equipped game room, study rooms and more. With a resort-style pool, hot tub, tanning decks, an outdoor grill and even pet-washing stations, The Cottages is the best and most unique option for individuals looking for a place to call home.
How does roommate matching work?
Students have the option to bring in their own roommates to fill their homes, or we will use our matching system to help them. With our Roommate Binder, students can contact others looking for roommates and find a match based off of their degree concentration, social habits, study habits, hobbies and more.
What about pricing?
The Cottages of New Mexico leases individual bed spaces to students starting at only $549 per month! Each home has its very own alarm system, a washer and dryer and free utilities, including water, sewer, trash, cable and internet. Our pricing is incredibly comparable to on-campus housing. The Cottages are also a more affordable option for freshmen because we do not require the $3,000 meal plan that is required by all other on-campus communities. We offer a free shuttle to and from campus and free parking—saving students over $300. We are a student resort at an affordable cost—you can't beat it!
How does a student reserve a cottage with you?
We are now giving tours of our model. Just call us at 312-8185 to set up an appointment to visit the community. Students will have the opportunity to sign their lease and reserve their specific house on the property. We are filling up very quickly, so we encourage reservations be made as soon as possible.
