If you have any questions regarding parking rules and regulations, please contact the University Police Department at 732-571-4444.
No, you are only permitted to park in your assigned area. Parking in a restricted lot is a violation and will result in a citation being issued.
Yes, if you believe that you were erroneously ticketed, you may appeal a ticket. You must follow the online appeal process on the reverse side of the summons. The appeal must be made within five days of the date the ticket was issued or you forfeit your right to appeal. All of the information required on the citation appeal form must be completed.
ABSOLUTELY NOT! Handicapped spaces are reserved for those students with a handicapped license plate or a temporary handicapped placard. You are permitted to use the 30-minute loading/unloading spot. If this is full, you must park in your assigned area. Leaving your hazard lights flashing does not constitute parking legally. The fine for this infraction is severe and illegally parked vehicles will be ticketed/towed.
All new students who plan to commute to campus are required to apply for parking decals for their cars. A parking application should be completed online through the Welcome Center. Returning students apply through WebAdvisor.
If you have a large number of items to move, you may stop at Police Headquarters and pick up a temporary pass that will allow you to load or unload your car closer to your residence hall. You will be assigned a specific lot. If you park in a handicapped space, double park, or stay longer than your temporary pass states, you will be issued a citation and your vehicle may be towed.
Resident students must properly affix a decal on the inside driver side rear window of their vehicle. Non-resident students will receive two decals and must properly affix one decal on the inside driver side rear window and one on the back of the rearview mirror. There are NO EXCEPTIONS. This decal is the only form of permit that allows you to park your vehicle on campus. On motorbikes and motorcycles, the decal must be mounted on the left-side fork. If your decal is not properly affixed in the correct place on your vehicle, you will be issued a citation and your vehicle may be towed.
Resident students are permitted to register only one (1) vehicle. Commuter students are permitted to register up to two (2) vehicles.
It is possible but not likely that a parking space will be available to allow a lot assignment change in the middle of the school year. You must request the change through the Police Department. Also, you must change decals through the Police Department. Any trading of decals between students is strictly prohibited. A fine will be assessed to those students illegally switching decals, and disciplinary action will be taken. If you are a non-resident student living off campus and move on campus during the year the same applies.
Payments are accepted online through WebAdvisor, at the Cashier's Office in Wilson Hall. Payments can be made in person during regular business hours, over the phone by credit card, or through the mail. Payment must be made within 14 days of the date on the face of the citation or a late fee will be assessed.
On-campus parking for resident students is limited. Only resident students who have been assigned parking decals are permitted to park on campus. If you would like to apply for a permit to park your vehicle on campus, please complete the application form located online through the Welcome Center. Parking will be assigned on a "first come, first served" basis, based on availability. Returning students apply through WebAdvisor.
After four unpaid parking tickets, you will be placed on the MUPD Revoked List. This means that your vehicle or any vehicle registered to you, regardless of who operates the vehicle, is prohibited from parking and/or driving anywhere on campus. It will be towed at your expense. You will also be blocked from registering for classes and your transcripts will be held until full payment of all citations is made. All outstanding tickets must be paid before you graduate or your transcripts, graduation tickets and diploma will be held until payment is received.
As per MUPD policy and as documented in the MUPD Parking and Driving Regulations brochure which will arrive with your decal, you may exchange your old decal for a new decal for your new car. It will be replaced free of charge only if the old decal is removed and returned to Police Headquarters. If the old decal is not returned, a new decal must be purchased at replacement cost. You may either remove the old decal and bring it to Police Headquarters, or drive your vehicle to Police Headquarters to have it removed for you. Please be sure to notify us of any change in your registration information so that we may update your file even if you aren't replacing the decal. You may stop by or call with the information.
You must immediately report to Police Headquarters to trade-in your Resident parking decal for a Non-resident decal, or you may be ticketed and/or towed. There is no charge for switching from a Resident to Commuter decal.
The decals are made to strongly adhere to the surface of your vehicle and should not detach. However, if your decal does begin to detach from your window, immediately remove it or bring your car to Police Headquarters to have it removed. We will then exchange it for a new one. Again, it will be replaced free of charge only if the old decal is returned. (If you make sure that the surface of your car is clean and dry before attaching the decal, it is unlikely it will fall off).
Only non-University employees and students may obtain a Fitness Center decal that enables them to park in the Commuter lots. Students and employees are not eligible to receive this decal and must park in their regularly assigned lots.
Non-resident students, employees and visitors utilizing the library facilities may park in Lot 6. Additionally, Lot 20, the library lot, is open after 7:30 p.m. daily to accommodate additional patrons. Should the library spaces be full, non-resident students must park in one of the non-resident parking lots on campus.NOTE: All non-resident students must have a valid parking decal. Visitors to the library must first report to MUPD to obtain a visitor hang tag. Resident students and any other individuals not utilizing the library facilities are prohibited from parking in these spaces.
Any visitor who wishes to park on campus must stop at Police Headquarters to pick up a visitor's pass and they will be directed to one of the visitor parking areas.
