Safety Message 2022

You may have heard the incredibly tragic news about a recent shooting in the University area where one of our former students was killed. We have been working with UNM and Albuquerque police to find out more about the circumstances of the shooting and to figure out if there is a pattern happening so that we can provide more safety information for all of you. We are aware that this is a frightening and disheartening situation that leaves everyone in the UNM community feeling insecure. We reccommend students take precautions to ensure their safety.

If you have any information contact Albuquerque police at 505-242-2677. You should also know that UNM and Albuquerque Police have increased patrols in the area by both uniformed and plain clothes officers.
