El Rito Campus | Northern New Mexico College

El Rito Campus

The El Rito Campus is home to the El Rito Normal School Alumni archives, memorial and orchard, and continues to be a center for community activities.

Alumni Hall is available year-round for Alumni events and other activities, including the monthly (3rd Thursday) New Mexico Food Depot distribution. The El Rito Water Association office is housed in Delgado Hall, and properties on and near campus are offered for rental to the El Rito community.

The El Rito campus grounds and park are open to the public daily from 7am to 10 pm.

Upcoming campus renovations include the restoration of the Delgado Hall roof and the installation of an automated gate on the south main entrance to improve security of campus grounds and properties.
