Due to the Governor’s declaration of a state of emergency and the Secretary of Health’s public health order, the University of New Mexico has made the difficult decision to implement limited operations for our university to prioritize the health and safety of our students, employees and the public.

Effective Tuesday, March 17, UNM Parking & Transportation Services (PATS) is making temporary changes in its business, parking, shuttle and enforcement operations. These changes are expected to remain in effect until the University returns to normal business on Monday, April 6. As this is a very fluid situation, please be sure to check UNM PATS website and UNM’s COVID-19 website for any additional changes or updates.

PATS temporary changes in operations are as follows:

Additionally, Staff will be available to answer questions, Monday-Friday from 7:30 a.m.–5:00 p.m. at 277-1938 or via email at parktran@unm.edu.

PARKING ENFORCEMENT
