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 Administration 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.

Summer Parking

After the last day of undergraduate classes, a parking permit is not required in the visitor and commuter lots/spaces. This includes lots 3, 5-7, and 17. Please be aware that ticketing for all offenses except “no valid decal/pass” is still in effect. Residents and employees should continue to park in their assigned lots

After commencement, ticketing for “no valid decal/pass” continues to be suspended in the visitor and commuter lots/spaces until the start of the fall semester.

Graduate students may also park in Lot 18 (next to the Education Building) after 4:00pm.

2015-2016 Parking Decals

Ordering Employee Decals

Employees can continue to order their parking decals online at this time. Please see below for instructions on how to use the decal ordering system, CARS.

Ordering Student Decals

Students will receive an email during the first week of August with instructions on ordering a decal for the 2015-2016 academic year.

Parking System

The college has a web-based parking system called Campus Automobile Registration System (CARS). This system allows 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
