Hotel Info: UNM McNair Scholars Research Conference


Please note that our conference takes place during the busiest time of year in Albuquerque due to the concurrent Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta which begins on Saturday, October 4, 2014.  Therefore room availability will be harder to find and more expensive on Friday night October 3, 2014.  Our official hotel rate has now expired .

The conference will be held at the University of New Mexico’s Student Union Building on the main campus.  It is approximately 1.5 miles from Downtown Albuquerque and 2 miles from the airport.  Both those areas have multiple hotels.
