Traffic & Parking

Due to the large number of visitors expected during commencement, traffic will be heavy on campus and throughout the local area. Please leave plenty of extra time in traveling to campus on both Thursday and Friday.

Arriving on Campus

When arriving at The College of New Jersey, you will be able to use both lanes on Route 31/Pennington Road to enter the campus at the Carlton Avenue entrance.  You may find using the Green Lane entrance a quicker way to arrive on campus. Police Officers from the College and Ewing Township will be posted at both entrances to help direct you onto and around the campus in a safe manner.


Campus police officers and commencement volunteers will assist in directing traffic to appropriate parking areas. Vehicles will be permitted to drop off mobility-impaired guests at either the Paul Loser Hall Circle or via the Green Lane entry to Lot #13 Decker Parking Garage. Golf carts will be available to transport these guests to desired campus locations.
