  • Like the game says, always be aware of your surroundings!  Many pokestops in Las Cruces are near busy streets and thoroughfares. Please use caution when using the app around these locations.
  • Dawn to dusk are the ideal times to play the game.  While there is light outside, you will be able to see better and hunt better.  If you do happen to go out when it is dark, take one or two fellow trainers with you.
  • Don’t trespass.  Pokestops are always active from a few feet away; there is no reason to go into an area where you don’t belong or a business that is closed to take advantage of the stop.
  • Stay hydrated!  During the early afternoon, it can get a little toasty in the City of Crosses.  Make sure you have adequate water supplies (and snacks) in your trainer backpack.

  • Many of the parking lots require permits but there are certain lots with parking meters as well. Weekdays from 7:30 am – 4:30 pm, parking restrictions are in place. Before or after those times, you can park anywhere. For more information, visit https://park.nmsu.edu/
  • There are too many Pokestops and Gyms to count within walking distance to count, making it an ideal place to walk around for a couple hours. Usually there is a large concentration of trainers that will drop lures near the Zuhl Library.
  • Main campus has fewer roads with fewer cars; mainly sidewalks connect buildings so there is less of a chance of coming into contact with a speeding motorist in certain areas. Even so, it is best to stay aware of your surroundings.
  • Connect to the wifi connection “Aggie Guest” if you agree to their terms; it covers the entire campus and you won’t have to worry about running down your data.
