Released: August 29, 2023
Due to a water pressure issue arising from Santa Fe County construction projects near the campus, the College’s fire suppression system is not currently able to function at full capacity. Consequently, the SFCC Main Campus must close on Wednesday Aug. 30 so that sufficient water pressure levels can be restored.
We will notify the campus community with additional information should Santa Fe County need to extend this delay beyond Wednesday. The closure includes all of SFCC’s Main Campus facilities – including but not limited to the William C. Witter Fitness Education Center, Kids Campus, and La Familia Medical Center. (The Santa Fe Higher Education Center, located in Santa Fe’s Midtown District, will remain open.)
Faculty and Staff who are able to work remotely are asked to perform work duties to the best of their abilities. Classes that can continue online should do so. Please direct class- or work-related questions to your instructor or direct supervisor.
No SFCC employees or members of the public will be allowed onto campus until the situation is resolved.
“I recognize that this closure creates a significant disruption to our students and those who rely on SFCC for numerous community services,” said SFCC President, Becky Rowley. “Members of our College are in contact and working closely with Santa Fe County officials, who have shared with us that work crews are mobilizing to resolve this problem as quickly as possible. As always, the safety of our students and the public is our top priority.”
The College will release updates and progress as new information becomes available.
