3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: It's hard to find a decent place close to the school becuase they fill up so fast, but if you have more than two roommates you can probably find a nice little house reasonably close to school. If it's just you or you and one roommate you'll be stuck either on campus or farther away from it.

Off-Campus Dining: There's a ton of great restaurants off campus. Albuquerque has great dining options. There are several vegan and vegetarian restaurants pretty close to campus. Lots of ethnic cuisine too: Greek, Mediterranean, Mexican, Indian, Thai, Japanese, etc. and they are all pretty good.

Administration: I hardly ever see the campus police or any sort of university enforcement except to give people parking tickets. There are few security people at night which can make the campus a little scary because of its proximity to Central. When there is an incident on campus, we only hear about it days after the fact.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: Getting regular financial aid was as much of a hassle as it has been at other schools. UNM also does not have very many scholarships for out of state students, especially transfers.

College Senior

Party Scene: I am not really part of the party scene, so I can't really say.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Again, UNM is just average in this respect. The dining hall is very big and has a lot of options but it would be trickey if you were vegan or a very strict vegetarian. There are many places in the SUB to get food but hardly any of it is very healthy. The stuff that is healthy (like wraps from Satellite) is expensive. Don't even bother with the pre-made sandwiches from Outtakes, those are gross. Einstein's is usually pretty good, and I hear they're adding a subway.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: The dorms here aren't any better or worse than dorms anywhere else. They're very small and cramped in buildings like Laguna. Living options like Casas del Rio are overpriced in my opinion. However, the dining hall is very big and has a lot of options and the dorms are very close to classes. The housing process was pretty easy although I thought the move-in days could have been organized more efficiently. Another slight annoyance is the lack of pick up/drop off locations around housing. Very awkward to pick people up or drop them off especially when they have stuff to carry in or out. There's no guest parking.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: There is a pretty good selection of food in the SUB, however, the prices at Dane's Deli and the Outtakes are really expensive for basic things, such as a sandwich or soup.

Party Scene: There are many social events all week and weekend. They are available for students and non-students. THere are plenty of activities.

College Junior

Campus Food: I live to far from the cafeteria. My housing is a 45 minute walk from the cafeteria. The other options for food are too expensive. We eat at home

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living in student housing has its' benefits--inexpensive, many other students, events for families. Extra security, and management staff. The staff are helpful, and the grounds are well kept.

All the families are students, and there is some cooperation among families.

The negative is the extensive oversight--always coming into your apartment to look; decreased privacy.
