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 See our list of PWD Drop-Off Points 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 be eligible to park in the parking spaces designated for use by persons with disabilities on campus you must first possess or obtain a State-issued PWD parking permit and it must be displayed in your vehicle. The state issued license plates or hangtag must also be displayed.

The person with a disability must accompany the vehicle in order to be able to park in a space designated for a persons with a disability. Individuals with disabilities may purchase a parking permit or pay for parking on an hourly basis on the same terms and conditions offered to students, employees and visitors who are not disabled. Failure to purchase a parking permit or pay a parking fee will result in your vehicle being ticketed.

Visitors to Campus

Visitors to campus with a State-issued PWD permit who do not possess a University-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 (5:00 p.m. Friday through 7:00 a.m. Monday) anyone with a State-issued PWD permit may park in any PWD space located in the surface lots without an additional Montclair State permit displayed.
