The University of New Mexico main campus (ABQ) and UNM HSC Rio Rancho will be on a 2-hour delay Wednesday, March 23 due to weather conditions. All educational classes and work hours will be delayed until 10 a.m.

This delay does not impact hospital or clinical operations at the UNM-Main or Rio Rancho campuses. All clinical services at UNM Hospital, Sandoval Regional Medical Center and UNM Medical Group are operating on a normal schedule.

UNM employees in previously designated critical areas will be expected to maintain regular work schedules.

For the purposes of UNM’s weather policy, a "delay" means that:

  • employees who do not work in critical areas will not be expected to report to work until the time specified in the delay announcement;
  • classes and labs normally scheduled to begin and end before the time specified in the delay announcement will not be held;
  • classes and labs normally scheduled to be in progress at the time specified in the delay announcement will begin at the delayed start time and end at their normally scheduled time; and
  • classes and labs normally scheduled to begin at or after the time specified in the delay announcement will meet as usual.

During periods of inclement weather, employees are expected to be at work as scheduled, but should take reasonable and safe measures in attempting to meet their employment obligations.

Also, an employee may need to leave work early to avoid hazardous driving conditions which may occur late in the day as temperatures drop. Supervisors are expected to be flexible in these situations in accordance with the business needs of the organizations and the reasonable health and safety needs of employees.

For inclement weather information you can check the UNM Snow Line at 277-SNOW.
