Instructions for first-time access

You must call the UNM at KAFB office at 260-1354 before you can register for a class on base. Please call no later than two weeks before classes begin. Earlier is better. UNM at KAFB staff will clear you to register on LoboWeb and obtain the information needed to complete your application for a long-term base pass. When the pass is approved by KAFB security, UNM staff will contact you.

UNM at KAFB staff will direct you when and where you may pick up your pass. This location is subject to change, sometimes on short notice. Available times for pickup are usually during specific weekday, daytime hours. Bring your current driver's license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance, and proof of UNM at KAFB course registration (a LoboWeb printout).

Do not wait until you are on your way to your first class to pick up your base pass. You may encounter delays at the gate, causing you to be late or to miss your class. Pick up your pass prior to the first day of class.

While attending classes you are subject to base regulations, including base exercises that may close base gates. These exercises could delay you in reaching class, or in departing after class is over.

  5. When you cannot go any farther, turn left again, so that you are driving along the front of the building.

If you are directed to pick up your pass at the Truman gate, do not attempt to enter the base there. Go back onto Gibson after getting your pass and enter the base through the Gibson gate.
