Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research

Creating the future

Deep Orange is a vehicle prototype program that immerses graduate automotive engineering students into the world of an OEM. Working collaboratively, students, multi-disciplinary faculty, and participating industry partners produce a new vehicle prototype each year. Each project integrates breakthrough product innovations and new processes – providing the automotive engineering students with hands-on experience in vehicle design, engineering, prototyping and production from the time they enter into the academic program until graduation.

The following are key goals and objectives for the Freight Policy Transportation Institute:

  • Improve understanding of the importance of efficient and effective freight transportation to both the regional and national economy
  • Address the need for improved intermodal freight transportation, as well as policies and actions that can be implemented to lower operating costs, increase safety and lower environmental impacts of freight transportation nationwide
  • Improve freight transportation performance to specific industries and sectors of the economy

NMSU Parking Information | New Mexico State University

Kiosks Available for Parking Permits

Two kiosks are located by the Parking/ID Card Cashiers’ area in Barnes & Noble bookstore and one will be at the NMSU Police Station’s reception area. Kiosks will have printer access  and will print temporary permits. Your confirmation receipt will serve as your temporary permit and must be displayed on the dash of your vehicle.


PARKING PERMITS will only be available for purchase online — not in person. Kiosks are also available to register and print a temporary permit. 

NMSU Parking Rules are in effect from 7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday – Friday with free parking on the evenings and weekends, and free parking lots located around campus.

NOTE: Parking citations are administered by the NMSU Police Department. Questions or comments should be directed to parking@nmsu.edu  or 575-646-2418.


Free Parking and Shuttle Service
NMSU makes it easy and affordable to park and commute around campus. Aggie Transit provides free shuttle routes that transport riders with a valid Aggie ID from free parking lots (identified in brown on the parking map).


Permitted Parking Lots
A variety of NMSU Parking Permits are available for those who wish to park in a designated “permitted” parking lot. Parking rules are enforced Monday – Friday from 7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Please consult the parking map for designated parking locations.


Departmental Placards 
NMSU Departments may request a special placard that will allow parking in specified areas of campus.


Just Visiting?
For those who only visit campus periodically, a variety of Visitor Permits are available.


Plenty of Spaces!
There are about 13,500 available parking spaces on campus. However, during the university’s peak hours (9 a.m. – 2 p.m. weekdays), only about 7,900 of those spaces are filled at one time. Therefore, there are generally at least 5,600 open spaces available when you arrive!

HELPFUL TIP: The lots around the center of campus near Corbett Center Student Union (CCSU), the Horseshoe, and the Barnes & Noble at NMSU Bookstore & Café tend to fill up very fast and remain occupied most of the day. Reduce the time and stress of driving around looking for a spot by simply parking in the “All Permits” lots east of Chamisa Village on Stewart Street. These lots are historically underutilized and are only a couple minutes walk from CCSU.
