Parking meters are also available only at the Main Campus and are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Meters are enforced Monday through Friday from 6:30 am to 4:30 pm.

The meters are located in the following lots: SSC (lower) lot, Trades (TC) lot, Central lot, JS lot, and PPD lot. The maximum time limit for a meter is 3 hours. The meters only take the following coins:

  • Quarters: $0.25 equals 30 minutes
  • Dimes: $0.10 equals 12 minutes
  • Nickels: $0.05 equals 6 minutes

Those meters displaying a red out of order cover require a general parking permit to park..

Defective meters should be reported to the CNM Parking Services at (505) 224-4637.

Failure to display time on a meter may result in parking citations and/or the vehicle being towed at the owner's expense.
