University of New Mexico Campus
One of the best things about our hotel in Albuquerque is its proximity to the University of New Mexico. The Querque Hotel is less than 2 miles from the sprawling 600-acre campus, making it the perfect homebase for anyone that plans to spend a lot of time on the college grounds. Whether you’re in town to move your child into their first dorm room, touring with a prospective student, or attending a graduation ceremony, The Querque is one of the most convenient ways to stay close to the university.
In addition to educating over 16,000 undergraduates a year, UNM is one of Albuquerque’s major cultural centers. The on-campus theater features Broadway and Off-Broadway shows throughout the year, as well as other musical and theatrical events, including ballets and the New Mexico Philharmonic. On-campus museums include the UNM Art Museum, which houses the largest fine art collection in the state.
Perhaps most exciting, however, are the on-campus sporting events. Known as the Lobos, UNM’s Division 1 sports teams include football, soccer, tennis, basketball, baseball, volleyball, and more. Tickets are available for all home games, while you can attend regular season cross country, golf, swimming and diving, and tennis for no charge. Make sure to mark your calendar for the popular NCAA New Mexico Bowl, played annually in December at UNM’s University Stadium.
