Information for Persons with Disabilities

Shuttle Services

The Persons with Disabilities (PWD) Shuttle transports passengers between campus locations and will pick-up/drop-off passengers as close to one's building as possible; however, please note that vehicles are not permitted to access the main campus core. This service operates Monday to Friday, 7:30 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. To schedule a ride, please contact us at 973-655-3326 or shuttle@mail.montclair.edu. See our list of PDW drop-off locations to find out where the PWD Shuttle can transport passengers.

If you are a student and you have appropriate documentation from a physician, the University’s  Disability Resource Center authorizes students to ride the Persons with Disabilities Shuttle.  Faculty and staff with appropriate documentation from a physician can receive authorization from the Human Resources and Employee Benefits Office

Parking Services

To park in the parking spaces for disabled persons on campus (except in the Red Hawk Deck), you must first possess a State-issued PWD parking permit. This state-issued permit must be registered with Parking Services and be displayed along with your MSU permit in your vehicle at all times when you are parked on campus. Verification assists Parking Services by reducing fraudulent use and is only required once.

our map of barrier-free routes from accessible parking spaces shows routes that have a less than 5% grade incline.

Visitors to Campus

Visitors to campus with a State-issued PWD permit who do not possess an MSU-issued parking permit should park in accessible spaces in the Red Hawk Deck or in metered spaces.

In accordance with applicable State regulations, those vehicles displaying state-issued PWD permits that are parked in metered spaces need only pay for the first half-hour and then do not need to re-feed the meter for 24 hours.

On weekends (5:00pm Friday through 7:00am Monday) anyone with a State-issued PWD permit may park in any PWD space located in the surface lots without an additional MSU permit displayed.
