Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a Permit?

Yes. Everyone who parks on campus needs to register their vehicle and obtain a parking permit. The only exceptions are for those who will park only in metered spaces in Lot 19, pay the hourly rate in the Red Hawk Garage, or pay the daily rate in the NJ Transit Garage.

You can register your vehicle and get your permit online.

All permits are virtual, meaning they are linked to your license plate number (no hangtags or decals!). So, make sure your vehicle information is accurate.

Permit Type Price
Commuter Surface Lot $260
Student Red Hawk Garage $425
NJ Transit Garage $300
Faculty/Staff Red Hawk Garage See Parking Rates
