NEWS

Priority Snow Route Plan

UNH Facilities has identified two (2) priority snow/ice removal routes. (View Map Here) These routes will be maintained hourly. It includes sidewalks, building entrances, and Access Van pick-up/drop-off points. Students should make note of these routes as they may differ from usual ones used.

Other sidewalks/areas will continue to be cleared as well; however, they will be cleared less regularly than the “priority routes”. Please be aware of balance, equipment, and other factors that may be affected by snow and ice.
