Vehicle Registration & Parking
All vehicles must be registered with the Public Safety Office located in West House, near the south entrance of campus. If you registered your vehicle during an earlier registration period, the decals that you received are still valid and will remain so for your entire academic program unless you have changed vehicles since your last registration or have a new license plate. If your vehicle registration information has changed or if you are attending Rider for the first time, you may secure new Rider decals by going to the Public Safety office (West House). The office is open seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day. Be prepared to show your state vehicle registration form, your driver’s license, insurance card, and Bronc ID. Parking for students is permitted in the lot in front of the Bart Luedeke Center (Student Center).
Students who need to obtain a new or replacement ID card should go to Public Safety Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. New student ID photos will also be taken in the Bart Luedeke Center, Room137, during the fall and spring semester’s one-stop enrollment clearance periods. Students who lose their ID card after hours can obtain a temporary card at Public Safety. If you lose your ID, please note that there is a $30 replacement fee charged to have a new photo taken for a replacement card.
New address or phone number
Students are able to update their address through MyRider, or by completing the appropriate form available from your advisor.
Books for your courses can be purchased from the University store located on the bottom floor of the Bart Luedeke Center. For additional information call (609) 896-5121.
