Getting to Campus

The University of New Mexico is located about five miles from the airport. You should plan to take a taxi from the airport to the University or your temporary accommodations if you haven’t set up any other airport pick-up. A taxi to the University will cost approximately $12 plus a tip of about $2 for the driver. The trip from the airport to the University should take about 10 minutes. If you arrive late in the evening and you have not made other arrangements, you will need to stay at a nearby hotel. Some departments may be able to assist you with airport pick-up or temporary housing accommodations. Please check directly with your department. See the Airport Pickup page for more.
