Parking Guidelines

With more than 40,000 people expected on our campuses in Piscataway and New Brunswick for Rutgers University Commencement on Sunday, May 17, 2015, we know that parking will be challenging. Parking on campus will be limited, so everyone must register to obtain a Commencement hangtag to park on campus. Note that parking permits issued by Rutgers Department of Transportation for use during the year will not be valid for parking on that day.

On Sunday, May 17, Rutgers campus buses will provide complimentary shuttle service to and from campus parking zones and the stadium every 3–5 minutes, starting at 8 a.m. and running into the evening.

Online Parking Hangtag Registration

Online registration for Commencement parking hangtags will begin on Monday, March 23, 2015, at 10 a.m., and will end on Sunday, April 19, 2015.

Graduating students are required to register online (NetID required) for up to two free hangtags for themselves and their guests. Following this free registration period, hangtags may be purchased by students and their guests online for $5 each. 

Details will be provided soon. Please check back here in the spring to register for parking hangtags.

Guests with Disabilities/Special Needs

Special needs parking is available, and in addition to government-issued handicapped parking placards, special Rutgers hangtags are required and must be secured well in advance. The online registration for special needs parking will be available beginning in January 2015. Please check back.
