The UNM campus is well maintained, offers a lot of venues for non-students, and is a nice way to meander around for some exercise, especially on weekends. Although there have been some issues with homeless and various other less desirable types for time-to-time, generally, the campus is a safe place to roam, especially during the day.

We went to University of New Mexico to look at some of the many museums they have on the campus. The only one that was open was the anthropology museum. It was a multi-level museum with interesting artifacts from the Native Americans and other artifacts from other parts of the world. It was disappointing that we couldn't get in to... More

My teen daughter is looking toward college and we took an official tour. The informational presentation was really well done. We were trollyed to the main campus from the south campus- with interesting facts relayed throughout. The tour was comprehensive and my daughter and I were impressed. The campus is filled with traditional southwest architecture ( and was founded in... More

We have been to many SEC, Big Twelve, ACC, Sunbelt and now Mountain West campuses on our travels. This time we stopped at UNM on our drive through Albuquerque. The campus was very interesting and we enjoyed seeing how it compared to our campus at LSU. It was very nice but from a flora standpoint our campus is a little... More

Phenomenal place. Nowhere else is like it. The architecture is unique and in perfect harmony with the overall vibe that is New Mexico. The campus is open to the public so you can walk or drive on any time you'd like (just be sure to pay for parking in 1 of the garages or park in a legal zone off... More

Lobo games are on fire, one of the best under dog teams I've seen. Really enjoy the Men/Women Basketball teams.

This beautiful campus, home of the UNM Lobos, is one of treasures of the state of New Mexico. As is the city of Albuquerque, this campus is the most handicap accessible university in the nation. It is home to "The Pit" basketball arena (a gymnasium dug into the ground where upon entering you're at the top level) and the great... More

We are used to campuses with beautiful architecture. This is not one unless you really like western adobe style structures. Almost all building are the same drab yellowish tan.

Friend of mine is attending UNM and gave me a tour of the campus. While I found it smaller than I'm been to before, it was very well planned out. The scenery is very true to the southwest and a beautiful stroll on a nice afternoon.
