UNM Emergency Information

General Emergency Instructions

UNM Continuing Education acts in accordance with the University of New Mexico’s decisions regarding delays and cancellations due to inclement weather conditions.


Monday-Saturday Call 277-SNOW (505-277-7669) or look for an alert at the top of our website.


How to be Notified

UNM uses several methods of communication to alert the campus community with specific information about the Albuquerque campus regarding weather-related closures and delays including text and email announcements, local television, radio and social media. Additionally, UNM's "Snow Hotline," 277-SNOW, can also be used by the campus community including faculty, staff and students regarding a weather-related closure and/or delay. To receive notifications and emergency communications by email and/or SMS, sign up here.

Note: UNM does not announce closures that affect Continuing Education when the UNM Main Campus is closed. If Sunday classes are canceled, you will receive a phone call from your Program Supervisor as soon as the decision is made to cancel a class. If at any time you are unable to drive or uncomfortable with driving in inclement weather, contact your Program Supervisor to make other arrangements.
