CarParc Diem

We’re excited to welcome back everyone for the spring 2022 Semester. To successfully tackle the usual traffic volume that we all face, Parking Services offers the following traffic tips and parking pointers:

Did You Get Your Permit?

To park any vehicle on campus, a permit must be associated with a vehicle. You may obtain your permit online or in-office and register your vehicle! Be certain that your vehicle is registered so we know that it belongs to you and remember…only one vehicle is allowed on campus with a permit. View More Details about Getting Your Permit.

Hourly paybyphone options are also available in all General/Commuter lots including Carparc Diem Deck. Please note that the paybyphone options are not available in Faculty/Staff lots.

It’s Crowded, Out There!

Remember, many people are returning to the roads after the break. Our local roads will experience the usual back-to-school congestion in addition to the ongoing Route 46 construction traffic delays. Allow for extra time to travel to campus and to successfully navigate campus roads as everyone gets back into the rhythm.

We’ve Got The Apps To Help

In the words of News12: “Know before you go!” The Parkingcloud Mobile App helps you know where the parking spaces are and Nextbus tells you when the next shuttle will arrive at your shuttle stop.

Get to Know The Map

Become familiar with the University’s Parking Map. Understanding what the campus looks like and where you are eligible to park can greatly reduce the amount of time spent on the road.

Follow us on Twitter @MSUParking. We provide regular updates to provide you with the most accurate reporting on space availability on campus.

Mass Transit

Consider leaving your car at home and try using public transit. Montclair State is situated between two train stations and is served by multiple bus lines; this makes public transit an easy and environmentally-friendly choice. Are you taking the bus, train or light rail to campus? All Montclair State University students are eligible to receive a NJ Transit monthly pass at 25% off of the regular monthly pass when they enroll online through NJ Transit Quik-Tik program! Get on TRACK with Quick-Tik!
