I am a forth year student in physical education and very proud to be a student. I look forward to furthering my education and especially maintaining a high level of fitness. I am fortunate that I can walk to classes every day. UNM is a great school.

My husband and I took our teenage son for a campus visit. The staff gave an informative presentation in the Union, and then a very friendly student led us on an individual tour. Because we were the only people on the tour, the student was free to take us to the buildings and areas that interested us most. He was... More

The campus has the unique architecture of surrounding Albuquerque, NM buildings. There are many free museums to visit on campus including an art museum and anthropology museum. Highly recommend a stroll through the campus. Visitors must pay for parking.

our son is studying for a year abroad at UNM so we had a personal tour of the campus. There is lots to see, art work in particular. We found leaflets on the way (think there was one for the art trail at the theatre) and suggested routes are given. Great to see the adobe style buildings. The Zimmerman library... More

We came to the University of New Mexico after a visit to the University of Arizona which we enjoyed quite a bit. In contrast, we found the city full of vagrants and the people relatively depressing. The campus was sparse with students and when we were trying to find the campus tour location on the "south campus" we were handed... More

Apparently the "center of the universe" is located at the University of New Mexico, who knew? It took us a little while to find it running around this beautiful campus in the freezing cold but find it we did. Visit the center if the universe.....check.

My niece attended UNM and she got a fantastic education. The campus is very beautiful and there are wonderful cultural events there...arts and theater included. We always loved to tour the campus when visiting her there.

Beautiful campus with unique southwestern adobe architecture. If you are visiting Albuquerque, definitely a must-visit. A good part of the campus is actually on Route 66, and it has nice cafes and shops around campus on the Route. Well groomed campus. Zimmerman library is an adobe architectural feast inside and outside. A nice pond ("the duck pond") is kind of... More
