UNM is the New Mexico’s public Flagship University located in Albuquerque, rated as a high research activity University.
Live and learn in a historic city on an expansive mesa a mile above sea level. A city that’s simultaneously
cosmopolitan and soulful, urban and rural, and brimming with light and possibilities. This is Albuquerque. A friendly place just around the corner from ordinary, on land bisected by historic Route 66 and the great Rio Grande river, a stone’s throw from the monumental Sandia Mountains. They appear to leap out of the landscape to the east and serve as an awe-inspiring example of the kind of wild, natural beauty that wraps around everything here and rushes off in every direction throughout the state.
