Parking at The College of New Jersey can be easy or strenuous, depending on the type of student. Commuting students are given lots 3 through 6 to choose from, which are mostly spacey and have available slots. However, it is important to avoid the 10 a.m. rush, as most students have courses from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. During this time, parking is hard to obtain and can result in a student's tardiness to class. Parking is best found in the morning from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m., and in the afternoon from 2 p.m. on. For students living on campus, cars can be parked for as long as needed in the assigned lots, with prior purchase of a parking permit for the year or semester. On the weekends, parking in lots 8, 9, and 6 is more available due to the number of students that go home.
Campus police are very strict about parking violations, so it is advised to stay within the lot you are assigned and obey the speed limit of 25 mph while driving on campus. In order to obtain a parking permit for the semester or year, students must fill out an application and pay online, and then they can pick up their decals at the Office of Student Accounts. With a valid reason, visitors may obtain passes at the Administrative Services building.
