Each year, the Mentoring Conference is held at the Student Union Building (SUB), located at the University of New Mexico’s main campus. Both the keynote sessions and concurrent sessions are held at the SUB, with the keynote sessions held in the SUB Ballrooms on the main level, and the concurrent sessions held in the break rooms on the upper level.

Arrangements have been made with the Sheraton Albuquerque Airport Hotel for mentoring conference attendees to stay at a discounted rate (including shuttle service to the Conference venue). For conference attendees staying at the Sheraton Albuquerque Airport Hotel, morning and afternoon shuttles will be provided to the UNM campus.
To take advantage of this special rate, reservations must be completed by phone and you must let them know you are attending the Mentoring Conference.

Shuttle Transportation Schedule
For guests staying at the conference hotel, we will provide a morning shuttle to UNM and an evening shuttle back to the hotel, operating on a pre-arranged schedule. Please notice that we cannot provide shuttle services outside of the prearranged times. (The cost for the shuttle service is included in the hotel rate.) Below are some resources that can assist you in planning your transportation logistics.
The Albuquerque International Sunport (ABQ) is served by several commercial air carriers, so it should be easy to find air transportation to the conference.
Amtrak serves Albuquerque (ABQ) on the Southwest Chief route. The Amtrak station is downtown Albuquerque on First Street, near Central (Route 66).
The Sunport Shuttle and similar companies provide shuttle service from the Albuquerque International Sunport to area hotels for a modest fee, and visitors can rent a car. Keep in mind that parking on UNM's campus is very limited and generally runs $1.75/hour.
ABQ Ride and Rapid Ride are the two parts of the City of Albuquerque's public transportation. ABQ Ride buses provide fast, easy and inexpensive transportation around the entire city of Albuquerque. Larger, articulated ("accordion") Rapid Ride buses are equipped with wireless internet, and have three different routes that run along Central Avenue, next to UNM campus. Rapid Ride stops are available near the hotel and at the South edge of the UNM campus. Buses are scheduled to run every 10 or 11 minutes.
