Service must then be arranged with Transportation & Parking Services at least 48 hours before the requested date of transportation. To arrange services, contact 973-655-3326 or Requests are honored on a first come, first served basis.

Visitors to Campus

Visitors to campus with a State-issued PWD license plate or placard who do not possess a University-issued parking permit should park in accessible parking spaces in the Red Hawk Deck, metered spaces, or any accessible space on campus using Paybyphone.

In accordance with applicable State regulations, those vehicles displaying a state-issued PWD license plate or placard that are parked in metered spaces in lot 19 need only pay for the first half-hour and then do not need to re-feed the meter for 24 hours.
