Dave Miles on Parking Rules and Regulations

There are always concerns and misunderstandings regarding parking on the Metropolitan Campus. There is plenty of parking on the campus. However, it may not always be convenient.

The following is information regarding parking on campus.

All vehicles must be registered with the Department of Public Safety and must display a decal or a temporary parking permit. Decals will be placed facing out on the back of the interior rearview mirror.

Parking spaces with signage or ground marking of reserved are reserved 24 hours a day. Faculty and Staff areas are designated with yellow lines and student areas are designated with white lines.

Public Safety is tasked with the enforcement of parking on the campus. This is not our main job, but we do have to spend a lot of time enforcing the parking rules and regulations because not everyone follows the rules.


When parking rules and regulations are not followed, this results in vehicles being issued campus parking violations. Any vehicle that receives one (1) or more campus violations will be subject to having a parking immobilizer placed on the vehicle. There is a cost to have the immobilizer removed. Excessive violations will result in the vehicle being towed o campus at your expense.

If you feel that you have been issued a violation in error you must appeal the violation using the online appeals process within one week of issuance. Appeals are not accepted on Fire Zone and Handicapped violations.

Owners and operators of vehicles park at their own risk on university property. The university does not assume responsibility for theft, loss or damage to any motor vehicle parked or operated on its premises. For insurance purposes, any owner who has suffered a loss is encouraged to ll out a report with the Department of Public Safety. Accidents must be reported to the local law enforcement agencies, as required by New Jersey law (39:4-159 et. Seq.)

This campus is not that big and you can easily walk from one end to another in 10 minutes or less. Public Safety would appreciate if individuals could be more courteous and park in the proper designated areas. Parking in the proper designated areas will insure that your vehicle is not ticketed, booted or, worst of all, towed off campus.
