General Information

 

The Parking office is located in Bole Annex and can be reached at 856-256-4575 or Parking@rowan.edu.  Business hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.  All parking information can be viewed online on the Parking Webpage

Parking and traffic rules and regulations are in effect at all times.  This includes weekends, holidays, summer and when classes are not in session.         

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

Motorcycles are not required to display the permit. Officers will run the license plate number to determine whether the motorcycle is registered to a valid permit or pass. 

 A parking permit or visitor pass DOES NOT guarantee you a parking space at any given time or location. 

 All vehicles (including Motorcycles) must be properly parked within a designated lined space on paved surfaces which includes roadways and lots.  If parked in a gravel lot, the vehicle must be parked in front of a parking bumper.

 Freshman and sophomore resident students are not permitted to purchase a permit or park on campus unless they have a job or medical reason with an approved signed affidavit.  All other requests may need approval through the office of the Dean of Students in coordination with the Parking office.  For further information, refer to the "Freshman/Sophomore Residents" tab on the Parking webpage.

 The internal shuttle service is free to Rowan students with a valid Rowan ID. An app is available to download to track the shuttle. All shuttle information can be viewed at: Shuttle Services

 No leafleting or solicitation is permitted in the parking lots/garages of Rowan University. 

 Visitor Parking

 A “visitor” is defined as a guest on campus not otherwise affiliated with the University or may be affiliated with Rowan at another location other than the Glassboro campus.

 Visitor parking spaces are available by the Welcome Gate in Lot H on Rt. 322.  These visitor parking spaces are signed and limited to parking for 45 minutes only.  If present, see the guard at the guard booth for a pass. 

 Otherwise, visitors must obtain a temporary day pass to park a vehicle on campus.  The only exception to this rule is when events are scheduled and parking is assigned through the Parking office.  If you do not know where to park for an event, contact the Parking office by phone or email for information.

 If you are a visitor/guest of a college or department on campus, please contact that college or department directly.  They should arrange issuing an electronic temporary pass for you in advance.  You will need to provide them with your full name and vehicle information (license plate number, state, make, model, year and color).

A Temporary Day Pass is free of charge and valid between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. for Lot B only.  For further information, refer to the "Request for Temporary Pass" tab on the Parking webpage.

Once submitted, your request will be reviewed for approval during normal business hours; Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.  You may call or stop in the Parking office to follow up on your request.

A Visitor Overnight Pass is available for a fee and can be purchased online at RowanU.thepermitstore.com for a fee of $5.00 per night and is valid until 8:00 a.m. the following morning.  This pass allows your registered vehicle to be parked in Lot B ONLY.  The pass must be properly displayed on the dashboard of the registered vehicle.  Please refer to the “Overnight Visitor Pass” tab on the Parking webpage for instructions.

For your convenience, computers and printers are available at the Department of Public Safety (DPS) Communications Center lobby or the Parking office.

Handicapped Parking:

Handicapped parking spaces are reserved for handicapped persons displaying a legal, state-issued handicapped placard or license plate which 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.

The Rowan parking office cannot issue passes for handicapped spaces on campus.

Persons parking in a designated handicapped parking space on University grounds must also have a valid Rowan University parking permit or visitor parking pass.

 Parking Permits

Parking permits are obtained online.  Please refer to the “Parking Permits” tab on the Parking webpage for detailed information and instructions for obtaining a valid parking permit.

Once the permit application is approved, print out a temporary parking pass to place on the dashboard of your registered vehicle.  It can take up to ten days to receive the stickered permit in the mail.  Please refer to the “Parking Permits” tab on the Parking webpage for detailed instructions on How to Print the Temporary Parking pass.

The expiration date of each permit type is printed on the “stickered” permit and noted at the time of purchase.  Or, please refer to the “Parking Permits” tab on the Parking webpage.

Students who become employees during their current academic semester may not be eligible for an adjunct or employee permit.

Displaying the Parking Permit:

The ‘stickered’ permit must be displayed on the driver side, rear passenger window – on the inside bottom left corner of the window (preferably, if available, place the permit on the small window portion that does not roll down). 

Only if this placement is not possible, place the permit inside in the back window in the bottom left corner.

If windows are tinted, making it difficult to view the permit, officers will run the license plate number to determine whether the vehicle is registered to a valid permit. 

Lost or Stolen Parking Permits: 

Please review replacement fees in the Fees and Violation Section of this document.

Permit Transferability Rules:

The Parking 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 to the permit, although only one registered vehicle is permitted on campus at any given time.  Student permit holders are required to transfer the "stickered" permit from one registered vehicle to the other with the exception of motorcycles. If you choose not to transfer the permit, then you must obtain a temporary pass.  All vehicles displaying the permit must be registered to the permit in the Parking system. 

Permits may not be lent, shared or sold by a permit holder to another individual under any circumstances.  The permit holder could be subject to disciplinary action, fine, and/or immobilization.
