The campus is beautiful and people are always friendly. Everything is open to the public (duck pond, free museums, etc). The only downside is that parking isn't free and even paid parking is hard to find. I suggest parking in the Yale parking garage (it always has a few open spaces). It's an easy place to visit to kill some... More

Parking can be an issue, except on weekends perhaps, but it is definitely worth a stroll around campus. Could or should combine with an evening at Popejoy Hall where many excellent arts and performances are offered with a full year round venue.

My son is looking at UNM for grad school; his older brother attended UNM years ago. We just toured the campus again and I had forgotten how remarkable it is. Extremely integrated pueblo style with facinating ground-level and elevated walkways. Good school as well. Worth a trip just to roam the campus and sit by the duck pond.

UNM is a hot-bed of liberalism, and conservative minded individuals should avoid the intolerant environment of the liberal staff of so-called educators.

A very nice campus for an easy stroll. Enjoyed stopping to watch the ducks at the pond. Great native plants and rolling hills.

It is a beautiful campus. It offers students an education and provides my events to make them feel at home. Eligibel students should consider UNM for their education.

A beautiful campus to tour. The architecture and scenery are marvelous as is the history of the campus. The university libraries are excellent. There are many places to sit and relax and enjoy the scenery and sunshine. Also, there are plenty of good restaurants around the campus area.

The UNM Art Museum has significant photography collections that are worth seeing. There are also several O'Keeffes as well as a wide range of other major art works. Worth an hr or so when you are in the area.
