Parking Services is located in the Public Safety (PS) building on Main Campus (map).


The general parking lots are free but you must register your vehicle online with Parking Services and display your CNM parking decal. The general permit is non-transferrable and valid only for the vehicle on which it's been issued.

Please note: general parking permits expire every academic year. Each year the permit holder must register or re-register their vehicle online with Parking Services. All vehicles parking on any CNM campus must have a permit or a valid ParkMobile session.

How to Get a General Parking Decal

General Parking is available to all CNM students, staff, and faculty.

How to Display

The General Parking Permit decal must be displayed in the lower left front driver side window on the interior of the vehicle. See example below.

Improper display of permits may result in a citation. The decals for general parking are non-transferrable but you can register more than one car. Failure to properly display a current general parking permit may result in parking citations and/or the vehicle being towed at the owner's expense.
