About Us

Welcome to the UNM Alumni Association!

From the beautifully restored Alumni Center at Hodgin Hall, the Alumni Association and Alumni Relations Office keep the University of New Mexico and its alumni communicating and connected. Everyone who graduates from UNM is automatically a member of the Alumni Association—there are no dues.
