Our SHAC Pharmacy staff is here to serve all UNM students, staff and faculty.

We offer a UNM SHAC Pharmacy discount to help save money on all generic medications. We also accept many insurance plans, and don’t worry, the co-pays are usually the same as if you went to your local pharmacy. We also provide text messaging and a mobile app to make using your Pharmacy a lot easier.

The Pharmacy also stocks a variety of Over-the-Counter Products, including dietary supplements.
