NECC Parking Decal Requirements

Northern Essex Community College’s parking decal requirements are an important part of the college’s overall public safety plan.

  1. Parking decals allow Public Safety to know who is on campus at all times.
  2. Due to the premium parking in Lawrence, parking decals allow Public Safety to eliminate non-NECC individuals from parking in NECC parking lots. Previously non-NECC individuals would park in the NECC parking lots to avoid paying for city parking and parking meters. With parking decals, NECC can provide the full extent of available parking to NECC individuals, and NECC individuals only. 
  3. Parking decals assist Public Safety in identifying the driver of a vehicle in the event of an emergency, accident, etc. 

Parking Decals are required to park in permitted parking lots. Fees apply for all students, faculty and staff as follows:
