(NOTE: Permit prices for the Spring and Summer are pro-rated and will change on December 1st for the Spring semester and on May 1st for the Summer Semester.)

All permits will be mailed. Once logged into the parking portal click “Manage Account” and verify your mailing address is correct to prevent a delay in receiving your permit.

  • If the address is incorrect, click ‘Edit’ and once saved remove any old addresses.

To prevent receiving a citation, you will need to print the temporary permit and display in the left lower corner of your windshield. The permit receipt is good for three weeks.


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.

Partial Refunds

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 575-646-2306 for details.
