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

Visited the Anthropology Museum and drove around the campus. As you may expect the architecture is Southwestern, and on a nice day is worth a visit particularly if your going to visit a few of the museums located on campus.

I haven't attended this University but I did go to one of it's rival colleges Colorado State. But I drive by UNM heading down town Albuquerque on Central Ave when in the city. I am sure UNM students like it or they wouldn't be going there. GO Rams

Oh, where do I start! I was enrolled at UNM in their Masters program in education. Half way through my classes, I had to take some time off because I was having financial issues. When I tried to take classes again, 1 year later, they had dis-enrolled me and then changed the course requirements (so I would have to take... More

One of our wine makers recieved his History degree at UNM and many of us have taken extention classes through their Taos campus. The education at this school is top notch especially in the sciences. The grounds are recognized as one of the state's botanical gardens making it a lovely place to take a stroll or have a picnic. The... More
