The LoboCard is the official UNM ID card carried by students, faculty, staff and others for access to university services, secure buildings and more.

For UNM-Taos students and employees, the LoboCard is the single most important form of campus identification you can have. Not only does it function as a photo ID, but it also grants you access to many of UNM's facilities and services.

Getting your LoboCard

If you are new to UNM-Taos, one of your first orientation checklist items is to get your LoboCard.

If you have been through New Student Orientation and still need a card, call 575.737.6215 to set up an appointment to have one made. 


UNM-Taos students, faculty and staff want to support our community and shop locally!


The UNM-Taos LOBOS Buy LOCAL program is designed to bring discounted goods and services to the attention of the campus community and encourage Lobos to support our business community by shopping locally.

We have been working across campus to identify ways to engage with and support our community, and one way we can give back to the businesses who have given so much to support education in Taos is to encourage our campus community to invest in local businesses.
