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.

Love the campus is all the adobe style buildings. Easy to get where you want to go just follow maps or signs. Lots of activities going on during the school year. Got to catch a Volleyball game in "The Pit" everyone we encountered was welcoming and friendly. Enjoy visiting Albuquerque plenty to do and love the climate

It is nice to stroll through the campus and view the South West architecture as well as the many sculpture. This is a large campus.

Beautiful campus with lots of great eateries nearby. Immaculately maintained grounds. There were not a lot of students around due to the weekend holiday but it was nice not having such a crowd.

This event held annually in April at the Pit, the University of New Mexico's basketball arena is North America's biggest Pow Wow attracting participants from all over North America. A colorful and cultural event that's a must see.

After having dinner at the Frontier restaurant, we decided to wander around campus for a while. It was beautiful. We enjoyed all the green spaces, art, and watching people enjoy the evening. Everyone was very friendly. We would recommend it for a low-key evening.

If your adhere to liberal progressive values, this is your school. But, if you are a conservative minded individual, stay away, you will not be welcomed.

Beautiful campus! Gym is the same from the 90's with the exception of new flooring (very nice)! We came for Volleyball camp and toured the campus. There were several Pokemon spots and a lot of students walking around playing! It was great to see so many smiles!
