It should be understood that parking is a privilege, not a right. The acceptance of parking privileges and the presence of any vehicle on campus represents an agreement by the motorist, that Middlesex County College is in no way liable for personal injury, damage, or lost of part, or contents of, the vehicle.
Myth: College Police do not issue citations during the first two (2) weeks of school.
Truth: College Police do issue citations beginning the first day of classes.
To park in a staff space you must have a current staff permit the 1st day of class or receive a citation.
The first two (2) weeks of class during the Fall and Spring semesters are extremely hectic and parking will be scarce. When the parking lots fill up, they will be closed off and traffic will be directed to other lots.
If you wish to save time, money (i.e. gas, tolls) and aggravation, do the following:
Who Must Have A Permit….
Staff members must display a parking permit or temporary parking permit.
What Does It Cost….
There is no fee for parking on the campus.
Where Can I Park….
Each lot has a specific designation for who can or cannot park there. Follow the color coded signs posted by lot numbers. Be aware of specially marked areas such as disabled spots, fire zones, loading areas, etc.
When Can I Park….
Parking regulations are enforced 24 hours a day, seven (7) days a week.
I. General Parking Lots

The Middlesex County Community College Police Department has primary responsibility for the enforcement of all College parking regulations and New Jersey Motor Vehicle Code violations.
The parking rules and regulations are designed to make parking as fair and easy as possible. Before you decide to appeal any ticket you may have received, please carefully read the following information.
Keep in mind that the initial appeal will be based solely on your written statement and any paperwork, photos or statements that are submitted with it. Phone calls and/or follow-up correspondence will not be made due to the volume of appeals that we receive. It is your responsibility to submit any evidence you deem necessary for your case. Statements like “I was told by…” are considered. A written statement by a third party does not guarantee a dismissal, but it may help your case.
What Is Not Accepted or Taken Into Consideration:
“I was only there for one (two, five…) minutes.”
“I’ve parked there before and never got a ticket.”
“I thought it was a space.”
“There is no sign that says I Can’t park there.”
“They told me I could.” Unless “they” is willing to back it up in writing and
has the authority over the rules and regulations.
…And the old standby: “I DIDN’T KNOW/NOBODY TOLD ME!”
“My car died…” unless supported by paperwork.
It is the policy of MCC not to replace lost or stolen permits without charge. Most permits are lost or stolen because:
Please report all lost permits to the Traffic Office at 732-548-6000 Ext. 3241. Although permits will not be replaced without charge, we can still attempt to locate permits that are reported lost/stolen.
Vehicles found with a permit that has been reported lost or stolen will be cited with fraud, not having a current permit ($25.00), and towed at the owner’s expense.
All personnel defined as staff must obtain and display a staff permit. This includes temporary and/or part-time employees. Staff members are not authorized to possess or use any other type of permit. The only exception to this rule is a temporary permit issued by the Police Department for those who already have a current staff permit.
