Welcome to the University of New Mexico-Los Alamos. UNM-Los Alamos is a branch of The University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, the largest four-year university in New Mexico. The UNM-LA branch campus is located in Los Alamos, a community that is home to the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL).
UNM-Los Alamos offers a number of outstanding programs and services to meet a variety of student needs and interests. We offer 14 certificate programs and 18 associate degree programs; community education and customized training courses; small business development seminars through our Small Business Development Centers (Los Alamos and Sandoval Counties); Adult Basic Education programs including General Education Development (GED) and English Language Learners (ESL); and bachelor and graduate degree programs through UNM's Distance Education Program.
UNM-Los Alamos has strong ties to the Albuquerque campus and many students come here to complete the first two years of a four year degree. UNM-LA's course offerings enable students to complete general education requirements, specifically, those that satisfy the UNM Core Curriculum. UNM-Los Alamos also hosts a large population of students who take an evening class in a subject of their interest, or attend one of the many community education classes to brush up on a skill or learn a new one. UNM-Los Alamos has partnership programs with LANL and a program through which students may work at LANL while completing a certificate or associate degree at UNM-LA.
UNM-Los Alamos is known for its small classes and dedicated instructors and staff. With an average class size of 10 students, UNM-LA offers the type of hands-on learning usually available only at a private liberal arts college for a bargain community college price.
