Northern Essex Community College has several parking areas on the Haverhill and Lawrence Campuses. Parking areas are permitted, with a limited free parking space for visitors.

The parking decal requirements are an important part of the college’s overall public safety plan. Parking decals allow Public Safety to know who is on campus at all times, to provide the full extent of available parking to NECC individuals, and assist 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:

  • $8.50 per semester for students
  • $12.00 annually for Full-Time and Part-Time Faculty & Staff, this fee is not prorated

Purchase Your Parking Decal Online or in Person

  • Order decal online using your Debit/Credit Visa, MasterCard or Discover through PermitSales.net/NECC. Print your receipt and place it on your dashboard until the parking decal arrives in the mail.
  • In person, with personal check or cash at the Payments Window on the ground floor of the Behrakis Student One-Stop Center on the Haverhill campus, or the Welcome Express Center in the Dr. Ibrahim El-Hefni Allied Health and Technology Center at 414 Common Street in Lawrence.

Important: You will need your vehicle registration information to complete the Parking Decal Application Form.
