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.

A large campus with lovely, extensive grounds. Fund to walk around and see the various university buildings and park-like central area. Visitor parking was a bit difficult to locate.

There are some good museums there to enjoy and learn from, but it a large area and parking is hard to find. Just about everyone walks around, so have comfortable walking shoes on.

The Zimmerman Library on the University of New Mexico is a must see for any lover of the work of John Gaw Meem. The great hall in this building exemplifies Meem's genius.

Walked around the campus with my boyfriend on a Saturday. He loves visiting university campuses, don't ask me why. I thought oh great another campus but was I surprised! It has gorgeous well kept landscaped grounds. It is beautifully laid out and many families were taking advantage of the nice day by strolling around. There is a duck pond which... More

Been here for a number of things - concerts, exhibits, weddings, research, talks, and the bookstore. All good. Parking during the week is a nightmare.

My wife and I enjoyed walking around this beautiful campus, which is between I-25 and Nob Hill along Central Avenue. We took time to walk around the football stadium and The Pit, which are to the south of the main campus. I was impressed with the unique architecture of most of the buildings on campus, a pueblo style that fits... More

I'm a UNM alum, so maybe I'm biased, but I still have strong feelings for this campus. My entire family has graduated from here - including my parents. It's lovely to walk around, even if you're not a student...UNM duck pond is a favorite. The productions at Popejoy and Rodey Theaters are incredible, and the parking that UNM has added... More
