The Northwestern EXperimental Underground Site at Fermilab (NEXUS@FNAL) is an underground cryogenic facility that has 300 meter water equivalent shielding. A dilution refrigerator operating at 10 mK, a DD generator producing 2.5 MeV neutrons, and a suite of optical and X-ray calibration sources are being deployed at the facility. The expected background level at NEXUS is 100 events/keV/kg/day. We present the status of the NEXUS facility and the near future plan for operating SuperCDMS R&D detectors for dark matter searches and calibrations in this facility.
