Weather & Emergency Alerts
Granite State College participates in the University of New Hampshire's emergency notification system, UNH Alert, which allows students, faculty, and staff to receive a message in the event of an emergency. These brief messages can be sent directly to your e-mail or cell phone, and will notify members of the college community about:
- Weather-related cancellations at our regional and academic campuses.
- Emergency situations that may affect students, faculty, and staff.
- Curtailed operations at the College resulting from an urgent circumstance.
The designated public media source for Granite State College cancellation information is WMUR TV. Faculty and students will be notified by public broadcast on WMUR TV and on WMUR's website. WMUR's information is also posted automatically at New Hampshire Public Radio.
- Local campuses may choose to notify through additional media outlets at their judgment.
- Notifications will also be announced using UNH Alert Emergency Alert System
Weather Cancellation Process
- Closing our locations, or cancelling classes will be done conservatively. Closures and course cancellations will only occur due to severe weather conditions.
- Students, faculty, and staff are personally responsible for their own safety and must exercise good judgment when making traveling choices in winter weather. The College advises them not to travel if they believe they are putting themselves in harm's way.
- Faculty is encouraged to be flexible with students who cannot attend due to inclement weather. Faculty members are required to contact their hiring administrator in Academic Affairs if they can’t safely travel to campus.
- Decisions to close or delay opening of our locations will be made no later than 6:30 a.m. Decisions to cancel evening classes will be made no later than 3:00 p.m.
To meet the requirements of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998, Granite State College publishes a yearly Annual Security Report. To learn more about crime statistics and relevant safety issues, please read the report.
