Visitors & Guests

All vehicles on campus must display a valid parking permit. To obtain a parking permit please go to the below locations:

Information Booth

Upon arrival on campus, all visitors (including guests of students, faculty, staff, contractors, and vendors) should report to the Information Booth for parking instructions and permits, unless prior arrangements have been made. The Information Booth is located near Trenton Hall and is staffed Mondays through Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. If the Information Booth is closed, visitors must report to Campus Police.

Campus Police

Campus Police is available 24 hours a day, seven days per week for the issuance of visitor permits. Campus Police is located in the Administrative Services Building in room 104. They can be contacted at (609) 771-2345.

All visitor permits have the expiration date and/or time on them. Please review this information before displaying the permit on your dashboard so you know when the permit expires.

If you are picking up or dropping things off to a student, a parking permit is needed to park in front of or behind the residence halls, even for just a few minutes:

Loading, Unloading, Pick-Up, Drop-Off

Temporary permits may be obtained from Campus Police or the Office of Student Accounts for loading, unloading, pick-up and drop-off in otherwise “no parking” areas with the exception of the following areas: fire hydrants or zones, handicapped spaces, walkways, or by dumpsters. This type of permit will be valid for a maximum of one hour, unless otherwise specified on the temporary permit.


  1. Once a temporary permit is obtained, please display it in plain view on the dashboard of the vehicle on the driver’s side. Failure to display the permit may result in the issuance of a citation.
  2. Parking permits issued do not entitle or authorize parking in spaces marked for handicapped persons.
  3. Altering or counterfeiting temporary permits is punishable by state law. Issuance of a citation and/or towing may result.
