Albuquerque & New Mexico

Our physical place in the global environment

UNM is located in Albuquerque, NM – a city of just over half a million people.  The size of the city provides a small enough community to build strong networks while simultaneously featuring big city amenities such as music, events, museum exhibits, food, and much more.  Albuquerque is home to many from diverse backgrounds, allowing space for all along with opportunities to engage with unfamiliar communities.  With our unbeatable weather, the state of New Mexico is one for exploration.  New Mexican landscapes are famous for their breathtaking beauty and will surely capture your imagination (even if they’re impossible to capture on film!).  With some exploring, you’ll quickly find your place in your new home.
