Rowan University Parking Rules and Regulations

Rules and Regulations

Parking and traffic rules and regulations are in effect at all times unless otherwise noted.

All students, faculty and staff, contract workers, visitors and guests who park a vehicle in an unmetered lot or garage on campus must have a properly displayed and valid parking permit or parking pass.

Temporary or visitor permits are available from the Welcome Gates or the Parking Services Office in Bole Annex. Persons needing a temporary permit after business hours may obtain one from the Public Safety Communications Office in Bole Annex.

Annual parking permits are obtained using an online process at www.thepermitstore.com/

Note:  A parking permit or pass does not guarantee you a parking space.   

All vehicles must be parked properly within a designated lined space.

Freshman students living on campus are not permitted to purchase a permit or park on campus unless they are employed off-campus. Contact Parking Services for verification procedures.

Permit and Lot designations include “Employee,” “Commuter Student,” “Resident Student,” and “Recreation Center.”  For parking permit purposes, adjunct faculty, graduate assistants, and residence hall directors are considered “employees.”

  • Employee lots are reserved for employees with employee permits. They include Lots A-1, B-1, E, G, H, M, P, U, T, S, and Z-1. Employees may park in student lots if the adjacent employee lot is full.
  • Commuter lots are reserved for commuter students with commuter permits. They include Lots A, C, D, M-1, R, & Y.   There is no parking allowed in Commuter lots from 2:00 am to 6:00 am.
  • Resident lots are reserved for resident students with resident permits. They include lots at the Triad, Edgewood Park, and Chestnut, B, J, X (Mansion Park), and Parking Garage (Available to Townhouse Residents Only).
  • Recreation Center members not otherwise affiliated with the University may park in Lot M from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m., and Lots B or C at other times.
  • Evening Commuter students with a valid permit may use Employee Lots H, P and Z-1 between 4:30 p.m. to 12:00 midnight, Monday through Friday.

Excessive or Unresolved Parking Tickets:  Any vehicle receiving three or more citations within an academic year is subject to being towed or immobilized.  Additionally, students may be referred to the Dean of Students for disciplinary action. Any vehicle parked in such a manner as to interfere with or obstruct university operations may be towed from the campus without warning.

Note:  The person to whom a vehicle is registered may be held responsible for any parking or traffic penalties or any liability or damage in which the vehicle is involved.

Transferability Rules:  The Parking Services Office issues one parking permit per parking patron. The permit is transferable to any vehicle owned or controlled by the permit holder.  You may have up to three vehicles registered at one time.  All vehicles displaying the permit must be registered with the parking system.  Permits may not be transferred, lent or sold by a permit holder under any other circumstances. 

Displaying the Parking Permit:  The permit must be displayed in the bottom left corner of the driver’s side rear window.  If not available, place in the back window in the bottom left corner.  The permit must be permanently adhered to the window.

Lost or Stolen Parking Permits:  Employees, students, or others reporting a lost or stolen permit are responsible for the replacement cost.  Please review replacement fees in the Fees and Violation Section.

Special Needs:  Persons with special parking needs should notify the Parking Services Office for assistance.

Accidents, dangerous conditions, or other parking problems should be reported to the Public Safety Department at 856-256-4911.

Handicapped Parking spaces are reserved for handicapped persons displaying a legal, state-issued handicapped permit. These permits must be obtained through the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (or equivalent agency from other states). Temporary handicapped permits may be obtained through your local police department with appropriate medical certification.  Persons parking in a designed handicapped parking space on University grounds must also have a valid Rowan University parking permit or temporary pass.

Overnight Parking is for Resident Students is limited to the following lots: Triad, Mansion Park, Edgewood Park, Chestnut, and Lots B, J, and the parking garage.  Non-resident students may park overnight in the parking garage if they purchase a garage parking permit (on a space-available basis).

Motorcycles are considered the same as an automobile. If you are registering a motorcycle, please contact the parking services staff to determine the proper permit display method for this type of vehicle.  

Temporary Parking Permits:  Parking patrons who have forgotten their permit may obtain a temporary permit from the Welcome Gates, the Parking Services Office in Bole Annex or the Public Safety Communications Center in Bole Annex after business hours.

Solicitation Prohibited:  No leafleting or solicitation is permitted in the parking lots of Rowan University.

Abandoned Vehicles:  All vehicles parking on campus must be in working condition, display a valid state license plate and, where required, a valid inspection sticker.
