Water Outage

Dear Campus Community,

Our water problem on the east side of Scenic is severe and will require substantial time to fix. Therefore, the campus will remain closed until Monday, April 22. I’m sorry for the inconvenience but we cannot expose our faculty, staff and students to unsanitary conditions.

Classes in the Tays Center will continue as normal.

Thank you,


Ken Van Winkle
NMSU Alamogordo
