The Student Union Building (SUB) at the University of New Mexico acts as a community center to students, staff, and faculty. The Student Union creates a sense of community for the student life population through the many programs and services that take place within the building. The SUB is a leader on campus and provides many high-tech conveniences, essential services, and cultural enrichment to the UNM community.

The University of New Mexico Student Union's mission is to maintain the highest standard in support, services, and programming in order to promote a strong sense of community and student life. It is a place where UNM students, faculty, staff, alumni, and guests can congregate and socialize in an environment that promotes an appreciation for diversity. The goals of the Student Union support the University's mission.
