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.

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.
