Parking Guidelines

With more than 40,000 people expected on our campuses in Piscataway and New Brunswick for Rutgers University Commencement on Sunday, May 15, 2016, 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 Services for use during the year will not be valid for parking on that day.

On Sunday, May 15, Rutgers campus buses will provide complimentary shuttle service to and from campus parking locations and the High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway every 3–5 minutes, starting at 8 a.m. and running into the evening.

Online Parking Hangtag Registration

Online registration for free Commencement parking hangtags will begin on Monday, March 21, 2016, at 10 a.m., and will end on Monday, April 18, 2016, at 5 p.m. 

During this period, students are required to register online (NetID required) for their free parking hangtags for themselves and their guests. Parking locations are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Please check back here in the spring to register for parking hangtags. 

Guests with Disabilities/Special Needs

Special needs parking is available and requires a special Rutgers Commencement parking hangtag. Online registration for special needs parking will be available here in the spring. Please check back.
