Freshman Surge

Jun 5, 2023 | Campus Connections, Spring 2023

Enrollment numbers increased at The University of New Mexico for Fall 2022. Total enrollment at UNM stands at 21,982 students, an increase of 1.6 percent compared with last year.  This is the first increase in total enrollment since 2012, reversing several years of declines.

Several key categories reflect continued increases and forward momentum at New Mexico’s flagship university for the 2022-23 academic year, according to figures that are not official until submitted to the state. The fall term began on Aug. 22.

The fall freshman class grew by 14 percent for Fall 2022, increasing for the third straight year and bringing the total increase to 25.8 percent growth since 2020. Fall 2022 is also the first time since 2013 that the incoming freshman class has surpassed 3,500 students – the 3,509 new first-year students this year represents the third largest incoming class in UNM history.
