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 Campus Police 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.

As of January 30, 2018


Ticketing for “no permit displayed” began for the spring semester in the student and visitor lots as of 9:01 p.m., on Sunday, January 28, 2018.

Ordering Spring 2018 Student Decals

Spring 2018 parking decals are available for purchase online through “CARS”. Undergraduate commuter and residential parking decals ordered online will be fulfilled and available for pick up within 48 hours (2 business days)  from The Office of Student Accounts, Green Hall, Room 119. You will need a valid photo ID ( TCNJ ID or government issued) and your state issued vehicle registration card ( the original, a copy, or a picture on your phone) with you when picking up your decal. We will not accept insurance cards or the order confirmation email.

Ordering Faculty/Staff Decals

Employee parking decal ordering is available online at all times. Click the “CARS login” link on the right side of the web page.

**Please note: Contingent worker decals expire on September 30th each 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
