Parking Services is committed to providing The College of New Jersey campus community with efficient customer service and the best possible solutions to meet your transportation needs. This site will help you find the information you need to make parking on campus easier.

Parking Services and the Division of Facilities Management, Construction and Campus Safety would like to remind all faculty, staff, and students that they are required to park in the lot(s) to which they are assigned at all times. Parking in a lot or space without proper decal or pass can result in ticketing and/or towing.

Please also be reminded that an upraised parking gate is not an indication that parking is permitted and the use of hazard lights or flashers does not authorize parking in front of a building or in any designated space.

Parking for Funival

Funival 2014 is scheduled for Friday, May 2nd from 4-10pm (rain date of Saturday, May 3rd from 4-10pm)

It will take place in parking lots 5 (carnival) and 6 (concert).

Parking lots 5 & 6 will be closed at 12:01am on Thursday, May 1st. Vehicles parked in these lots will have to be moved before May 1st. Any vehicles remaining in lots 5 &6 will be towed to Green Lane Fields at the owner’s expense.

Clean-up will commence immediately following the event. However, please note that it is possible that some rides may remain in the lots overnight and be dismantled the following morning.  This could mean the lots would be unavailable for parking until Sunday, May 4th if the rain plan is implemented.

End of Semester & Summer Parking

Starting on May 1, 2014 at 5:00pm, ticketing for “lack of valid decal” ONLY will be suspended for the upcoming summer.  Students may park in any student lot without a decal from this date forward until next semester. All Faculty/Staff lots remain as parking for Faculty/Staff only.

All other parking offenses not related to “lack of valid decal” will continue to be enforced and lots patrolled as usual by Campus Police.

If you do not have a parking decal and will be bringing your car to campus before May 1st, you will need to purchase a weekly parking permit from Parking Services in Green Hall 119.

New for 2013-2014

Lot numbers and arrangements are effective August 15, 2013

Parking System
The College has installed a new web-based parking system called Campus Automobile Registration System (CARS). This system will allow students, faculty, and staff to order decals online, print out a temporary dashboard permit so you will automatically have a valid permit, as well as monitor and/or appeal parking citations.

A training video on how to use CARS can be found here: Ordering Decal Demonstration
