Hours and Admission

Construction Notice
Please pardon our dust while we create a more welcoming and safe environment for visitors to the NHCC Campus. Construction work is being conducted on the central open space area of our campus which has altered the walking paths. If you parked in the North parking lot by the Pete Domenici Education building, please follow the signs directing you to the left and through the Fountain Courtyard to access the Performing Arts Building, the NHCC Art Museum and the History and Literary Arts building. Signs will be posted along the pathways to direct you to your destination. Visitors who use the entrance by the Torreón can access all buildings. Thank you for your patience.
