How to find us on the UNM Campus

Below is a map to help you find Northrop Hall, and the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, University of New Mexico.

All parking on the UNM campus is by permit only except for the UNM Visitor Parking located immediately east of Popejoy Hall (SE corner of the map). Visitor parking fees are $ 1.75/hr . There are a limited number of parking meters (with a 30 minute to 4-hour limit depending on the meter) on Redondo Road just south of Northrop Hall. I hour metered parking is available on Central Avenue across from campus (1-hour limit) with parking "scripts" purchased at ticket vending stands located on each block. Both the city and campus police regularly ticket parking violators. Several commercial paid parking lots (generally costing somewhat less than the UNM Visitor lot) are available just off campus on Yale Blvd just south of campus and adjacent to University Blvd just west of campus. Parking on most side-streets in the area between Central and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd west of campus is free. For the most up to date information on parking on the UNM campus plus information about shuttle bus service for parking and special events, please consult the Parking and Transportation Services Web Page.

The main department office is located in Room 142 on the ground floor of Northrop Hall. The Institute of Meteoritics office is located on the third floor in Room 308. Regular office hours are from 7:30 AM to 4:30 PM, and the offices are closed during the lunch hour between 12:00 and 1:00 PM.

There are two very detailed maps of the UNM Main Campus in Adobe Acrobat format. One lists the buildings in Alphabetical order and the other lists them in Building Number order. Northrop Hall is Building Number 24 on these maps.
