Do I Need A Parking Permit?
If you intend to park in any area that is not metered or designated as “free,” then a Parking Permit is required. FREE parking is available at NMSU where parking permits are not required! The “free” lots are color-coded in brown on the parking map. Students living in Tom Fort Village and Sutherland Village do not need a permit to park one vehicle in their driveway. Parking in other areas on campus, including along all streets, will require a parking permit.
If a student or faculty/staff member is only on campus during the fall semester and has purchased an annual parking permit, it can be returned to the Parking Department before January 15 for a partial refund. Call the Parking Department at 575-646-1839 for details.
