If everyone were the same, there’d only be a need for a few clubs and student organizations. But everyone is different, so we have 425 clubs.


One of the best choices you can make as you start your college career is to live close to campus. Right on campus, even better. Because you should be spending your time being here, not getting here.

There is no shortage of ways to get out there and get your blood pumping. Skiing and hiking. Right outside your back door. Rock climbing, or how about biking? Morning, noon and into the night, if you like. Rafting, canoeing, ballooning. You decide when, we can tell you where. With over 310 days of sunshine, the only things around here that will keep you from getting out and immersing yourself in open-air adventures are the limits you set.

New Mexico offers great Hiking, Biking, and Skiing/Snowboarding.


Lobos never slow down. We're always on the prowl for ways to move. And win. Good thing there are lots of ways to channel your energy and do both here. When it comes to sports, all eyes are on us. Every game is a big game. Exciting. And competitive. Because we take our job seriously. We play our hearts out. And give people reasons to howl and lose their voices and their minds, year in and year out.
