CALDWELL UNIVERSITY PARKING REGULATIONS 2018-19
RESIDENT STUDENTS (R.S.) 
Permission to drive or park a motor vehicle on campus is considered to be a privilege and not a right that one is entitled to by reason of enrollment in Caldwell University. The University assumes no responsibility for the vehicle or contents as to fire, theft or other damage. The University assumes no responsibility for damage incurred if a vehicle is moved after the vehicle immobilizer has been installed as a result of repeated parking rule violations. If you are using another vehicle, you must acquire a temporary parking permit from the Office of Campus Safety & Security.
  • A parking permit must be affixed in the bottom left hand corner of the rear window of the vehicle. It will be in clear sight when you are facing the rear of your vehicle. Exceptions may be made for tinted windows. This permit will be good for one school year. You will need a new permit if you change your vehicle, because permits are not reusable/transferrable.
  • All vehicles must observe a 10 M.P.H. speed limit on campus. ? Only cars displaying a handicap license plate or placard may park in handicap spaces. You can obtain a N.J. temporary handicap permit from your local police department, if you qualify for one, in coordination with your physician. The handicap permit must be issued to the driver of the car!
  • All students must park in the main parking lot unless they have reserved parking status in the MJRH or Rosary Hall/Dominican Hall reserved lots. Parking in roadways, grassy areas, reserved spaces, the President’s spot or designated fire lanes are prohibited. Vehicles found in these areas may be towed away or immobilized with “the boot” without previous warnings and summonses. No parking in Staff or Faculty Parking Spaces. Parking is permitted after 4:00 pm in the Staff parking spaces, not Faculty!
  • Only vehicles displaying Resident Student-MJRH stickers may park in lot at MJRH. Only vehicles displaying Resident Student RH/DH stickers may park in the red spaces near Dominican Hall. MJRH lot and the red spaces are off limits to commuter students and visitors. All overflow parking must be in the outer white spaces of the main lot. Violators will receive a summons, a boot, or be towed away.
  • Resident students cannot park beside the Newman Center at any time. Resident reserved parking stickers for MJRH, DH and RH will be issued through the Office of Campus Safety.

DISCIPLINARY ACTION WILL BE AS FOLLOWS: **All parking ticket disputes must occur within 10 days of ticket issuance

  1. Permit Violations: All violations will result in a $10.00 fine.

  3. Any vehicle receiving more than three tickets will be immobilized with the “boot”, a device fixed on the driver’s side front wheel, which can only be removed by campus Security and subject to an additional $25 boot fee. If your vehicle has been “booted”, go to the security office or contact Security at ext.3286 or the University switchboard at ext. 3289 to notify security. Do not attempt to move a vehicle that has been immobilized because it will cause damage to the vehicle.
  4. “Special Circumstances” Vehicles blocking traffic, causing safety hazards or in egregious violation may be immediately booted or towed. A $25 fine will also be assessed.
  5. ADDITIONAL VIOLATIONS: Additional violations will result in the immediate booting of the vehicle and the car may be towed from campus at the driver/owner’s expense. If infractions continue, the car may be banned from campus until the beginning of the next semester/school year.
