According to a UNM Newsroom article, the following are the locations of the stations:

  • Two charging stations (four parking spots) in the Yale Parking Structure on central campus (1st level).
  • Two charging stations (four parking spots) in the Cornell Parking Structure on central campus (4th level).
  • One charging station (two parking spots) in the M Lot at the corner of Tucker Avenue and Stanford Drive on the north campus.
