Parking Policy and General Information

All students, faculty, and staff MUST display a valid parking decal in order to park in Kean University parking areas. Parking decals are issued at no cost. Parking Decal must be affixed to the back driver side window of your vehicle to avoid possible parking violations, fines and/or towing. Unauthorized vehicles are subject to parking fines.


Students may park their vehicles within white lines only. Freshman resident students are not permitted to bring vehicles on campus. Hardship exceptions should be directed to the Office of Residential Student Services.


Faculty and staff must be regularly employed and on the University payroll, or a full-time employee of an organization under contract to the University.

Decal Registration

Apply online for decals for each car you park on campus. Register other vehicles online and select “Add”.

You will need your Kean University 7-digit ID, license plate and automobile VIN# (vehicle identification number) to complete your registration. Go to Click on “Register for Kean Parking Decal Here.”

After you have completed your online registration, your new Parking Decal will be mailed to you within 3-5 business days.

Same Day Parking Decal Registration

You may visit the Office of Student Accounting and register online for a Parking Decal at any Kiosk. After you complete your online registration at the Kiosk, you may immediately pick up your Parking Decal at the Parking Office window.

Overnight Parking

If you are going to spend the night at Kean, your vehicle must have a Kean University parking decal to be parked in the area designated for overnight parking. This is the area between North Ave, and the orange curb/barrier in the Vaughn-Eames parking lot. Parking along the side of the orange curb is not considered overnight parking.

Visitor Parking

Parking for visitors is available in front of the Administration Building. Visitors must check in with the security officer. Faculty, staff, and students are not permitted to park in the Visitors Parking area.

Restricted Parking

Parking in all of the following areas is restricted except for vehicles with special parking permits: Accessible (license plates or placard required); staff/faculty yellow-lined spaces, medical, Day Care Center, First Aid, Board of Trustees, Office of Small Business, State Vehicles, Service Vehicles, and Police.

Parking Violations

Parking citations may be issued to violators of Kean Parking Policies. All parking violations are subject to a $50 fine and must be paid or appealed within 15 days of the issue date in order to avoid late fees. Late fees are an additional $50 per ticket. Tickets are uploaded into our database within 24 hours after being issued. All tickets must be paid either online at or at the Office of Student Accounting. 

Persistent violators are subject to having their parking permit/privileges revoked by the Kean University Police Department. Persistent violators are also subject to municipal summons and/or may have their vehicle towed/impounded.
