Easy to tour University and see oldest college in New Mexico. Southwestern architecture and can see local culture surrounding the campus. Attended school here and would not change my choice due to education, culture and quality of programs

Being a graduate of this institution and frequenting the campus routinely I have some opinions about UNM. First, the other reviewers are right in that it's a pretty campus. Second, the library system is okay but it's the biggest show in town with New Mexico State offering the only competition in the state. Third, if UNM paid near as much... More

I enjoyed my visit to UNM's campus a lot. The architecture is consistent throughout the campus and represents classic New Mexico architecture very well. Even with most things closed and students being on break, it was a relaxing place to walk through, and the pond was full of happy, quacking ducks.

The area has something to offer most everyone from shopping at one-of-a-kind shops to a diverse array of restaurants and coffee shops. Over the years the mom-and-pop shops have flourished by offering hand made, non-typical art, jewelry, furniture, hair salons, day spas, book stores, etc. Be aware of your surroundings while meandering around since the homeless and vagrant types sometimes...

I spent 2 hours walking around the university and loved the architecture and beauty of this campus. Went on a Saturday morning so parking was not a problem, use a parking garage if you go during the week.

This university seems well laid out and is a very pleasant environment.. We looked round on a Sunday so it was quiet.

We visited the campus with an alumni who was clearly proud of his university and was very knowledgable about its claims to fame. It's fun to visit another state and see locals so proud of their area!

I visited this Museum in anticipation of seeing worthwhile art from their advertised 30,000 pieces of photography, prints, and paintings. The main gallery, which consists of one moderate sized room featured an exhibit called, "The Civil War," which pertains to the current conflicts between the police and society (this exhibit does NOT pertain to the 1860-1865 period in U.S. history)....

We stopped by the University of New Mexico. It covers a very large area; we wanted to go to the bookstore to purchase some items. Everything is EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE!! It is difficult to get anything at a reasonable price particularly if you are looking at clothing. It is a nice campus in the heart of the city. Adobe style buildings,... More
