Student Vehicle Registration
The only students who will be permitted to register a vehicle on campus are as follows:
Commuting Students who live off campus and use a motor vehicle to commute to class. One automobile and one motorcycle may be registered. Upon acquiring campus housing, previous commuter students with valid commuter decals must exchange those decals to the Office of Student Accounts within fifteen days of the move to receive a residential decal.
Resident Students in the senior, junior and sophomore year may register their vehicles to be parked on campus. Should a resident student change to a commuter student status, they must exchange their valid resident student decal for a valid commuter decal within fifteen days of the status change.
Freshman Resident Students are only allowed to register a vehicle on campus for a maximum of two weeks per semester after paying the required fee. However, students who can demonstrate a compelling need or would suffer undue hardship due to this restriction can petition for a parking exception.
Purchasing a Parking Permit
During the summer (early August) an email is sent to all students and faculty/staff with instructions on how to order a parking permit online. After online permit ordering ends at the start of the fall semester, bring your vehicle registration card to Green Hall 119 along with payment in cash or check to receive a parking permit.
Students who purchase a TCNJ parking decal for the fall and/or spring semester of any given academic year may return their parking decal to the Office of Student Accounts for a refund based on the original purchase price. No refunds will be processed unless the actual parking decal is returned to the Office of Student Accounts.
Refunds will follow the academic calendar set by Records and Registration. For specific dates, please go to: http://tcnj.pages.tcnj.edu/academics/academic-calendars/
