Practice Impacts Due to Continued Pool Staffing

Jeremiah Stanton

Seniors and Black Group,

Pool management has let us know that they will be closed all day for the next 4 Fridays due to continued staffing challenges. (10/15, 10/22, 10/29, 11/5)  We will have practices available at UNM from 415-615pm.  I understand that some swimmers get out of school and might be late.  That is totally ok.  Please see below information for parking instructions.

Parking Information

Parents are welcome to drop off swimmers on the west side of the natatorium, in the lot between the pool and the Health Center. They may enter the pool through the gate or up the stairs between the pool and Johnson center. If you wish to park, there is a parking garage next to Johnson center and metered parking south of Johnson Field.

Yearly permits may be purchased through UNM. S-Lot permits allow you to park anywhere in the A-Lots after 3:45pm. Please visit UNM’s Parking and Transportation website for current rates, maps, and other information.

You may pick up swimmers in the same area as you drop them off. However, please don't park in a handicapped spot or leave your car if you are in the bus/fire lanes.

      UNM Parking Pass info:

  1. To get a parking pass you may visit the UNM parking department in person or online (just search UNM parking).

  2. It is easiest to purchse the pass in person if you do not have a myUNM account; they are open until 5pm. It is located on Redondo Blvd in the SE corner of the parking garage building. If you need to purchase online call the UNM Parking and Transportion office and they can help you through the process. 

  3. If you would like to purchase a parking pass, it is recommended that your purchase the cheapest one – the South Lot (S) pass.

  4. The S pass is for the South lots around the UNM Stadiums – BUT IT IS GOOD AT THE “A” PARKING LOTS ON THE MAIN CAMPUS AFTER 3:45PM – THE “A” PARKING LOT IS THE LONG PARKING LOT ACROSS FROM JOHNSON FIELD – an easy walk to the pool.

  5. The S pass is around $180 for a full year (starting mid August and ending the next mid August), and is pro-rated as the year progresses
