Parking is available in authorized, well-lighted areas on Rider’s Lawrenceville and Princeton campuses for students, faculty, staff, visitors and guests.  

Parking Regulations and Enforcement

The operation of a motor vehicle on either campus is a privilege which may be withdrawn by the University for failure to comply with regulations enforced by the Department of Public Safety and outlined for both campuses in The Source, Rider’s student handbook.  These regulations apply at all times to members of the University community including students, faculty, staff, visitors and guests.  

Parking is prohibited in fire zones and on campus roadways except as otherwise designated.  The Department of Public Safety may limit or alter on-campus parking and traffic flow in the event of an incident, emergency or campus event.

​Please note that Rider University assumes no responsibility for the care of, protection of, or damage to any motor vehicle or its contents at any time it is operated on, parked on, or removed from University property.


Vehicle Registration

All vehicles are required to be registered with the Department of Public Safety.  Vehicle registration is offered during fall opening activities in the student centers on both campuses.  Vehicles may also be registered throughout the year by visiting the Department of Public Safety.  Public Safety is located in West House at the south entrance of the Lawrenceville campus and in the rear of Bristol Chapel on the Princeton campus.  Public Safety is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and can be reached at (609) 896-5029.

Traffic Ticket Appeals

If you believe that a ticket may have been inappropriately issued, you may seek to have it reviewed administratively.  This review is initiated by completing a Traffic Ticket Review Form which must be submitted via email within fifteen (15) days of the issuing of the citation.  All reviews are conducted by a Traffic Ticket Review Board comprising representatives of the student body and staff.  The decision of the Board is final and is communicated via regular mail to the person making the appeal.
