I Have An Account, But It Will Not Let Me Login

If you have forgotten your password, use the I've forgotten my password link on the Sign In link.  It will email you link to your registered email address to reset your password. The system will also deactivate your account when you have not made a reservation in a while, and resetting your password will not help with this.  If you know you have an account registered to the email you are using to login, contact the SUB Event Planning office  (505-277-5498 or subevent@unm.edu) for SUB requests and the Student Activities Center at (505) 277-4706 for Outdoor Space requests and have them reactivate your account.
