Now Hiring Student Employee Positions


There are various types of parking options for you at CNM campuses. However, every campus lot requires either a registered window decal permit or hanging tag permit. If your vehicle is parked in a CNM parking lot and you do not have the proper permit displayed, you will receive parking citations.

Types of Parking

Be sure to get your permit for either a general or paid lot before your classes start and plan to arrive early to give yourself time to park and walk to class.

News and Lot Information

New Uber/Lyft pick up / drop off area located just North of the city bus stop in front of MS on University Blvd. Look for new "UBER / LYFT" signs.

Effective Summer 2019, the North Lot Overflow will be renamed Central Lot Overflow and a Central permit will be required. Also, the parking lot west of the Public Safety building, currently part of Smith Brasher Lot 3, will be renamed Public Safety Lot and a general permit will be required.

Also, Parking Services is no longer automatically waiving a first citation; if you receive a citation you have 16 days to pay or appeal. Appeal Committee meets every other Friday.
