ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - There have been a lot of complaints from UNM students about all the partying that goes on at the year-old Lobo Village Apartments next to the Pit, so the University is making changes at the sprawling complex when it comes to booze.
Nearly 900 students live at Lobo Village -- a place that allows alcohol for anyone over 21 years of age. Now though there will be an option for those who don't want to be anywhere near alcohol.
"Some people's bad behavior had to be addressed, and now we're dealing with it pretty strictly," said UNM's V.P. Of Student Life, Walter Miller.
Starting next school year one of the 17 buildings at Lobo Village will be completely alcohol free for students who want to get away from alcohol and noise.
UNM says they already send resident advisors to make surprise room checks, especially in the evening. They also limit the number of people who can visit a room.
Miller says they have been asking students if they want booze taken off the table completely at Lobo Village, and the majority of students who have responded say no.
"I'm over 21 so I like to have the occasional beer when I come home from work or something," said Lobo Village resident Brandyn Way.
UNM says there are about 60 students per building at Lobo Village. Next fall students will have the option to live in an alcohol free apartment and if that building fills up, they'll consider having another booze free wing.
While UNM allows drinking at the Village for anyone over 21, drinking is not allowed in the main campus dorms, which are for under-classmen only.
