All vehicles parked on University property must be registered and display a valid Rutgers permit. Vehicle registration is a personal obligation and non-receipt of registration materials does not excuse failure to register. Register vehicles for your use only. To register a vehicle for another person’s use through false information constitutes fraud. Parking permits are intended for use by the registrant only and possession of another person’s permit does not grant you their privileges. Use of counterfeit, stolen or altered permits is illegal. Violators are subject to towing, fines, revocation of privileges, and judicial action.
How To Display Permits
A Rutgers’ permit consists of a hangtag that must be suspended from your rearview mirror at all times while parked on campus. You may register as many additional vehicles as you need online (at no additional charge). You may not have multiple vehicles on campus at the same time. The hangtag must be transferred to the vehicle in use. A permit is valid only if the hangtag and corresponding Access Card for (prepaid permits) or Discount Card for (pay-as-u-go permits) are in the students possession.
Reserved Parking Policy
The parking supply on campus is a limited resource that requires efficient management and proper policies that are consistent and equitable for the entire Rutgers Newark community. For details, click on Guidelines for Reserved Parking.
Motorcycles/Motorcycles Parking Fees
Each cycle requires a separate numbered permit, but may be priced as an "additional vehicle" provided a primary permit has already been purchased. Students pay the $4.00 (plus Tax) daily rate. For students with a primary permit, the current yearly cost to register the motorcycle is $19.43 (plus Tax). In instances where the motorcycle is the primary/sole vehicle, the price of the motorcycle permit will be priced in the same way as an automobile; based on the schedule above for students, and based on salary for faculty/staff. Student motorcycle permits are valid within an academic year from September 1st to August 31st; Faculty/Staff motorcycle permits are valid within the calendar year from January 1st to December 31st. Cycles may park only within legitimate stalls at appropriate facilities. The University reserves the right to alter the schedule of fees.
Alternative or New Vehicles
Alternative or New Vehicles must be registered with the Commuter Transit and Parking and Services office. Failure to register the replacement vehicle constitutes a violation. Fee is based on student/faculty/staff status. Hangtags should be removed from sold or traded vehicles and returned to CTPS at Blumenthal Hall - Suite 105.
Lost or Stolen Hang Tags
Hangtag holders are urged to lock parked vehicles at all times to protect against theft. The University will not be responsible for lost or stolen hangtags. Any lost or stolen hangtag should be reported to the Commuter Transit and Parking Services immediately. A replacement fee of full value (discounted over time) is required in all instances for faculty, staff, and students. CTPS requires that the original receipt be presented to qualify for a replacement.
