Campus Safety Reminders
UNM is committed to offering services, information, resources and tools to offer a safe campus to all students, staff, faculty, and visitors. You can contribute to campus safety and preparedness by becoming informed, staying alert and using good judgment. Take advantage of the features on the campus safety site to help protect you and ensure the safety of the UNM community.
Emergency preparedness on a University campus can present many challenges. A campus environment includes not only an extremely large geographical area, but a continuously changing population. Emergency planning must protect people as well as the institution’s operations such as research, athletic and entertainment events, food services, housing and transportation.
If you have any information regarding this incident or notice any suspicious behavior, contact the UNM Police Department at 505.277.2241. Always be aware of your surroundings. LoboGuardian is an app that turns your smartphone into a virtual blue light phone.
