Policy: All faculty, staff and current students are required to obtain and display a valid RCGC-issued parking permit for all vehicles that are parked on campus. Violations of parking and driving regulations may result in citations and fines.
Registration: Parking permits may be obtained by filling out a downloadable Student Parking Application or obtaining an application in the library. Students must return the completed form to the RCGC library for their free permit.
The following information must be supplied to obtain a parking permit:
- Student ID number
- License plate number
- Make, model, year and color of vehicle
- Contact phone number (for emergency purposes)
Student and Visitor Parking: All students and visitors will park their vehicle in lots “D” and “E." No parking is permitted between the hours of 12 and 6 a.m., unless authorized by the campus Security Office. RCGC reserves the right to close any parking lot, including restricted areas, without notice as specified by the executive director of Safety and Security.
Handicapped Parking: Designated parking spaces are provided throughout the campus for individuals with handicapped parking permits issued by the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission or the Deptford Police Department. Handicapped drivers must display the appropriate rearview mirror placard issued by the State of New Jersey or license plate.
Note: State law requires the authorized holder of the placard or license plate to be present when the parking privilege for persons with disabilities is used.
Note: The Deptford Police Department or County Sheriff can ticket persons illegally parked in handicapped parking in private parking areas.
Fire Lanes: To comply with local ordinance, and for the safety of the campus community, vehicles may never be left unoccupied in a designated fire lane. This includes while hazard lights are flashing and for short periods of time.
