A Commuter's Guide to Overnight Parking

A Commuter Student’s Guide to Overnight Parking on Campus

The recent initiative to discontinue overnight parking (between 2:00 am and 6:00 am) in CarParc Diem for students with Commuter permits is beneficial to maintaining current permit prices, allow for daily maintenance of the CarParc Diem Parking Deck while, at the same time, considering Resident Students who, essentially, pay more for a permit that authorizes overnight parking.  This recent change has brought about questions related to alternative overnight parking options and accessibility to the campus during these hours. Parking options available to you between 2:00am and 6:00am are as follows:

Overnight Parking Options:

Red Hawk Deck: Overnight and Visitor parking is available in the Red Hawk Deck. Rates and Prices are available online.

Pay-By-Phone Services: Phone numbers and location codes for PayByPhone services are available in Commuter and Resident Surface lots and are displayed on parking meters and signs throughout the campus. New users will go through a one-time registration process. Once completed, a prompt will let you know when your parking session has begun.

Metered Parking: Meters are available in Lot 20. The installation of our new Luke II meter provides pay-by-plate service and now accepts credit card payments. 

Stalled or Idled Vehicles: Vehicles parked in the CarParc Diem Parking Deck that have been idled or stalled may contact the parking office at 973-655-7580 to make arrangements. Parking Services provides jump-starts to vehicles that are stalled due to dead batteries.
