Online parking registration opens on Thursday, August 1, 2019. All vehicles parking on Montclair State University’s campus must be registered to a valid Montclair State University permit or pay for daily parking.

Important Information & Registration Details

Before you register, remember:

  1. Review your Permit Options online before registering.
  2. Read the Parking Regulations – including regulations that relate to your permit.
  3. View the Parking Map to understand the campus layout before the start of the semester.
  4. Students may fill out an exceptions request form for extenuating circumstances beginning Thursday, August 1, 2019. Only medical exceptions* will be considered.
