DEEPLY, UNIQUELY ROOTED IN NEW MEXICO.
Look around. Our campus looks like New Mexico. It blends with the environment. It feels like New Mexico. There is no mistaking where you are when you’re here. The art we create and display. The architecture—the buildings we live, work and learn in. This is The University of New Mexico—the university for New Mexico. Unlike any other flagship state university anywhere, we live and breathe and embrace who we are and where we are.
OUR CAMPUS IS A CAMPUS AND AN ARBORETUM.
Honey Locusts. Siberian Elms. Ponderosa Pines. Our campus is the sprawling home for more than five thousand big (and little), beautiful, well-cared-for trees. According to the USDA, typical trees live about 40 years and have a 55 percent survival rate. The trees here, though, have a much higher life span and survival rate than normal, due in part to the stewardship of our campus arborists.
MORE THAN 5,000 TREES ON MAIN CAMPUS
OUR CITY WITHIN THE CITY.
