The University of Albuquerque was a Catholic university in Albuquerque, New Mexico, which closed in 1986. Its former campus on Albuquerque's westside now houses St. Pius X High School, a Catholic high school.
The university was formed in 1966 as the successor of the College of St. Joseph on the Rio Grande by the Sisters of St. Francis, under the leadership of Sister M. Victoria Schuller, OSF. The campus sits atop a bluff overlooking the adjacent Rio Grande below and Albuquerque to the east.
Fictitiously, the University of Albuquerque was still open and housed a renowned basketball program in the High School Musical film series (2006–2008), specifically High School Musical 2 and High School Musical 3: Senior Year.
