Q:

Where do classes and camps meet?

In addition to the UNM Continuing Education campus buildings, we are excited to offer classes at a variety of UNM Main Campus locations and at local educational venues so your student has access to state of the art facilities. Your class meeting location will be noted in the course notes, and in your confirmation email which will be sent 5 business days prior to class beginning. In addition, please refer to our Off-Campus Location Guide.

Requests for accommodations should be referred to the Youth Programs Supervisor at least two weeks prior to the start date of the class or camp.
