Campus information

Northern New Mexico College recognizes and incorporates the place-based uniqueness of northern New Mexico into academics and campus life.

Northern's communities of service are deeply tied to the region, a fact that influences both the educational choices of our students and the ways in which we serve them.

We primarily serve rural communities within a 40 mile radius of our main campus in Española, New Mexico, including eight Native American communities, within one of the most underserved regions in the state.

Northern has campuses in Española and El Rito. In addition, Northern also regularly offers classes upon request at other communities within its service area. The Española campus is an attractive thirty-acre tract which runs from state highway 85 to the banks of the Rio Grande. From anywhere on campus one may appreciate the panorama of the Sangre de Cristo and Jemez Mountain ranges. The surrounding area offers a wide range of outdoor recreational activities such as boating, swimming, fishing, hunting, camping, and skiing.

Española is the center of commerce for the area which has a growing population of approximately 35,000. The Española campus is located 25 miles north of Santa Fe and 40 miles south of Taos. The Española campus consists of eleven buildings dedicated to classrooms and labs, plus a gymnasium.

The El Rito campus is 32 miles north of Española on a sixty-acre tract on the southernmost slope of the San Juan Mountains at an elevation of 6,600 feet. Adjacent to the campus is the scenic and peaceful village of El Rito which is located at the entrance of the vast Carson National Forest. This forest is known for its excellent fishing, hunting, and camping sites. Fifteen miles to the east is the village of Ojo Caliente, which is famous for its hot mineral springs and related resort facilities. Eighteen miles to the northwest is Abiquiu Lake, which is a prime water recreation area.


Only off campus housing is available.
