In January, major construction began for projects on North Campus, including the new UNM Hospital tower, and the Center for Movement Disorder and Senior Health Clinics.
While these new construction projects are exciting steps forward in UNMH’s journey toward better serving patients and the New Mexico community, the projects have significantly changed the landscape of North Campus and reduced parking availability in the area.
As the new hospital tower and clinics construction continues, UNM PATS would like to make you aware of upcoming changes to the parking lot designations on North Campus that will affect parking permit purchase eligibility and cost. Here’s what you need to know:
G Lot Designation and price change for 2021-2022 Academic Year
Effective July 1, G Lot will be designated as a proximity lot (it is currently classified as a Commuter lot).
For Faculty and Staff, the cost of a G Lot proximity permit will increase with the start of permit sales for the 2021-2022 Academic Year. Be aware that the auto-renewal process for those faculty/staff on payroll deduction this year will occur the weekend of July 23.
To mitigate impact to current G permit holders, the permit increase for UNM Faculty and Staff will be spread over a two-year period as follows:
2021-2022 Academic Year
- Low-mid rate pay (<$50,000) = $204 per year
- High rate of pay (>$50,000) = $240 per year
2022-2023 Academic Year
- Low-mid rate pay (<$50,000) = $408 per year
- High rate of pay (>$50,000) = $480 per year
Who is eligible to purchase a G (proximity) parking permit?
- UNM Faculty and Staff (as available)
- North Campus Grad Students (as available)
Q Lot Eligibility Change for Academic Year 2021-2022
Who is eligible to purchase a Q Lot (commuter) parking permit? UNM Faculty and Staff, North Campus Grad Students, and North Campus Undergrad Students, as available, are eligible to purchase a Q Lot (commuter) parking permit.
These purchase eligibility changes are effective with the onset of the new academic year payroll deduction period for UNM Faculty and Staff.
New Student Commuter Parking Lot Available starting in 2021-2022 Academic Year
PATS is excited to announce the addition of a new 517 parking space commuter parking lot, labeled the “ELKS” Lot, located at 1642 University Blvd. ELKS Lot commuter permit cost is $180 per academic year.
During the fall and spring semesters, UNM shuttle service will be available between ELKS Lot and Main Campus from 6:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Thursday, and 6:30 a.m.-6 p.m. on Friday.
