  • Be sure to obey all posted signage.

  • Don't park or drive on lawns or sidewalks.
  • Don’t park on diagonal lines.

  • Park properly within a designated lined space on paved surfaces, which includes roadways, along a curb, and lots.  If a gravel lot, vehicle must be parked in front of a parking bumper. 
  • Advise your visitor or guest that if they are visiting for the day only, they are required to request a Temporary pass or see the guard at the Welcome Gate for a pass to park.  If an overnight visitor, they need to purchase a Visitor Overnight Pass to park in lot B.  Refer to the Visitor Parking section of the Rowan University Parking Rules and Regulations.  A Day pass is valid between the hours of 8:00 am to 10:00 pm at no charge, and Visitor Overnight passes are valid until 8:00 am the following day for a fee.

  • Do not park in Load/Unload areas for more than 20 minutes. Flashers must be on.

  • Spaces in front of the Student Center are for pick-up and drop-off only -“No Parking”.
