Parking at the Zimmerli

Thank you for your recent registration to the Bloustein School Alumni Awards Celebration on Thursday, March 28, 2019 at the Zimmerli Art Museum.

The Rutgers Department of Transportation Services (DOTs) utilizes a Virtual Parking Pass system on campus. License plate recognition technology captures and reads a vehicle license plate to confirm that the vehicle is registered and has permission to park on campus. While parking is free, guest event parking requires online registration for each event. Vehicle license plates must be unobstructed, affixed to the bumper, and displayed in view from the driving aisle of a parking space.

ALL guests to the Bloustein School Alumni Awards Celebration must use the below link to register for the event. 

Every vehicle coming to the event must have its own registration, so please share this link with any other guests that may have registered. Until this process is completed, vehicles are not registered and may receive a citation. 


This link is valid ONLY for parking for the Bloustein School 2019 Alumni Awards Celebration.

Guests to the Bloustein School Alumni Awards Celebration are assigned to park in lots 1, 11 and 16.
