Schools, Colleges, and Departments


UNM Parking & Transportation Services offers a variety of permit services for schools, colleges, and departments based on eligibility. Whether your department is looking to host an event, call in guest lecturers, or provide parking for your staff that do not work near main campus, PATS is here to provide the best possible parking options. 

Please keep in mind that it is prohibited to use University funds for any type of personal benefit, including paying for employee parking or parking fines. For more information on "Allowable and Unallowable Expenditures," please refer to University Administrative Policy 4000, section 6. 

Guest Permits

UNM departments may purchase guest permits for guest speakers or visitors contributing to the mission of The University without financial compensation. Guest permits are sold in bulk at reduced rates to UNM departments for daily or weekly use. Guest permits may NOT be issued to any paid staff, faculty, vendor, student, or contractor. Resale of guest permits is strictly forbidden.
Daily Guest Permit: $4.40 each
Weekly Guest Permit: $13.20 each

Daily Resale Permits | $8 each

UNM departments may provide one-day permits for their paid staff, faculty, student, vendor, or contractor for parking in close proximity to the organization on a day-by-day basis not to exceed three days per quarter. Daily Resale Permits are to be purchased from PATS directly at face value and may be resold to end users at the amount paid for the permit. UNM departments are NOT allowed to sell parking on campus to groups or individuals at a profit. All charges to any individual for parking must be reported and transferred to PATS.

Weekly Resale Permits | $24 each 

UNM departments may purchase weekly permits for resale to participants in conferences or workshops that charge registration fees, or that are not purchased by Purchase Requisition (PR). Weekly Resale Permits are to be purchased from PATS directly at face value and may be resold to end users at the amount paid for the permit. UNM departments are NOT allowed to sell parking on campus to groups or individuals at a profit. All charges to any individual for parking must be reported and transferred to PATS. Rush charges apply to orders with less than 3 working days notice.

Rover Permits | $100 per year

UNM Departments with staff who provide services or attend meetings around campus may apply for a departmental rover permit. Due to their nature, the issuance of rover permits are tightly regulated to avoid misuse. Departments must provide sufficient justification that there is no other solution for personnel to adequately perform their job function without a rover permit in their applications. To apply for a Rover Permit, please download the Department Dean/Director/Chair Terms and Conditions Agreement Form and attach to the Rover permit Request. Please note that the signed form attachment is required to submit your application.

Departmental Permits | $475 per year

UNM Departments based in locations not regulated by UNM Parking & Transportation Services or UNM Hospital are eligible to purchase Departmental Permits. Departmental Permits are for the use of remote staff doing short-term official UNM business on main campus.

Reserved Spaces

UNM Departments requiring a more convenient, regular parking arrangement for guests may opt to purchase reserved parking spaces. In some cases, reserved spaces can be placed in an area at the department's request. Reserved spaces are not to be used by any paid staff, faculty, vendor, student, or contractor.
Surface Lot Reserved Parking: $1243 per year
Structure Reserved Parking: $1600 per year
