Parking & Transportation Services: Connecting UNM

UNM to Participate in Bike to Work Day

The UNM Bike Friendly University committee is encouraging all students, staff and faculty to join the City of Albuquerque in participating in National Bike to Work Day, Friday, May 15 from 6:30 to 8:30 a.m.  The UNM North Campus, in conjunction with the citywide initiative, is teaming up with the Division of Student Affairs, Parking and Transportation Services, and Recreational Services to serve as one of ten cycle stops located throughout Albuquerque. 

The cycle stops will be offering coffee, fruit, t-shirts and other fun stuff.  Bicycling is fun and offers great exercise, cost savings, environmental benefits, and a great way to see the city.  The UNM cycle stop will be located at Tucker and the North Diversion Channel. 

For more information about National Bike to Work Day, visit the BiketoWorkABQ website and check out this video from the Albuquerque Parks and Recreation department.  

New Evening Rate Being Offered in Cornell Parking Structure

In an effort to better suit the needs of students parking on campus during “off hours,” Parking & Transportation Services is piloting a new $5 flat rate for parking in Cornell after 3 p.m., starting on Monday, April 6.  

By offering this new "Evening Rate," PATS hopes to encourage more students to utilize the convenient parking at Cornell for evening classes and activities at a discounted rate (discount depends on how long they park for). The $5 flat rate will be good from 3 p.m. to midnight, and will be an additional option to paying by the hour at $1.75/hour.

See our flyer for more information.

To print your temporary permit, click on My Parking Account. Click "Manage My Parking Account." Login using your UNM NetID and password. Click “View Your Permits” and then click on your permit number. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and choose “Print Permit.”

Display your temporary parking permit on the driver’s side dashboard of your vehicle.

Repositionable Sticker Permits

We would like to inform our customers that all new student parking permits will be in the form of a repositionable sticker. Please note that this sticker will re-adhere to your windshield if you move it between vehicles.

In order to properly display this permit, please follow these instructions:

  1. Peel the protective cover off the front of the permit.
  2. Place it on the lower left hand corner of your windshield (bottom of driver’s side).
  3. Make sure that the permit image is facing outward (this is the only way that the permit will adhere to the windshield).
  4. Please be aware of the disclaimer along the top of the permit: “Display of this permit constitutes an agreement to read and abide by the UNM Parking Regulations.” Copies are available here.

 If you have any questions about displaying this type of permit correctly, please feel free to contact our office at any time.
