Parking Guidelines

With more than 30,000 people expected on our campuses in New Brunswick and Piscataway for Rutgers University Commencement on Sunday, May 14, 2017, we know that parking will be challenging. Parking on campus will be limited, so everyone must register to obtain a Commencement parking hangtag. Note that parking permits issued by Rutgers Department of Transportation Services for use during the year will not be valid for parking on that day.

On Sunday, May 14, Rutgers campus buses will provide complimentary shuttle service to and from campus parking locations and High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway frequently throughout the day.

Required Online Parking Hangtag Registration

Online registration for free Commencement parking hangtags will begin on Monday, March 20, 2017, at 10 a.m. and will end on Monday, April 17, 2017, at 10 a.m. During this period, students are required to register online (NetID required) for up to two free parking hangtags for themselves and their guests. Parking locations are assigned by zone on a first-come, first-served basis. Please check back here in March to register for Commencement parking hangtags. 

If remaining hangtags are available, additional hangtags may be purchased online on this website by anyone for $5 from Monday, April 17 at 10 a.m. to Monday, May 1 at 10 a.m. 

Guests with Disabilities/Special Needs

Special needs parking will be available and requires a special Rutgers Commencement parking hangtag. Please check back; details will be available soon.
