We investigate a six-dimensional universal extra-dimensional model in the extension of an effective neutrino mass operator. We derive the β-functions and renormalization group equations for the Yukawa couplings, the Higgs self-coupling, and the effective neutrino mass operator in this model. Especially, we focus on the renormalization group running of physical parameters such as the Higgs self-coupling and the leptonic mixing angles. The recent measurements of the Higgs boson mass by the ATLAS and CMS Collaborations at the LHC as well as the current three-flavor global fits of neutrino oscillation data have been taken into account. We set a bound on the six-dimensional model, using the vacuum stability criterion, that allows five Kaluza-Klein modes only, which leads to a strong limit on the cutoff scale. Furthermore, we find that the leptonic mixing angle θ12 shows the most sizeable running, and that the running of the angles θ13 and θ23 are negligible. Finally, it turns out that the findings in this six-dimensional model are comparable with what is achieved in the corresponding five-dimensional model, but the cutoff scale is significantly smaller, which means that it could be detectable in a closer future.
