Safety & Facilities

The safety of the students, faculty, and staff at NUNM is of the highest priority. NUNM monitors weather conditions and has an extensive emergency plan to address weather emergencies and other crises that may affect the campus.

If you are unsure whether classes, functions, and events at NUNM will proceed as scheduled due to weather (or other crisis), please visit the NUNM homepage for uptodate emergency notices. Also, stay tuned to TV and radio broadcasts for school closings related to weather. Please do not rely solely on the media, however, for NUNM updates and information.
