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

Maps of the SUB floor plans can be downloaded here.  The SUB also features a number of dining options, which are available here.

For conference attendees staying at any of these hotels, morning and afternoon shuttles will be provided to the UNM campus for a $5 fee per day.

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. 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.
