Parking Information for Students

If you do not yet have your hang tag, you can pick one up at the Welcome Express at either campus. The Haverhill Welcome Express is located on the first floor of the Student Center, and the Lawrence Welcome Express is located on the first floor of the El-Hefni Building.
The Enrollment Services and Student Financial Services manages parking hangtags for all students.

  • NECC parking hangtags are free of charge.
  • All students in good standing are eligible to receive their parking hangtag when they register for their initial semester at NECC from either the Student Success Hub in Haverhill or the El-Hefni building (414 Common St.) in Lawrence.
  • Each semester a student registers for classes, they will receive a sticker to add to their hangtag identifying the semester they are registered for. It is the student’s responsibility to add the sticker to their hangtag.
  • New students attending Orientation will receive their hangtag during the event.
  • Only (1) hangtag will be given to a student. The hangtag is linked to the student and not the vehicle. This allows students to use the hangtags interchangeably between vehicles. It is the responsibility of the student to have a visible hangtag showing when parked on campus to avoid possible sanctions.
  • Hangtags are to hang from the rearview mirror. The tag should be properly displayed at all times while on the campus.

Lost/Stolen Hangtags

Faculty and staff whose hangtags are lost or stolen must email parking@necc.mass.edu to request a new hangtag. The requester must include their name, department, title, and Public Safety pick-up location.

Students whose hangtags are lost or stolen must report the lost hangtag to Enrollment Services and Student Financial Services who in turn will issue the student a new hangtag.

Disabled/Handicapped Parking

Designated Disabled/Handicapped parking spaces are available on each campus. Parking in a designated handicapped parking space requires the individual to display an official disability parking placard/plate issued by a state. Students, faculty, and staff that require handicapped parking are encouraged, but not required to display an NECC hangtag. It is recommended that individuals have the NECC hangtag available to them if a handicap parking space is not available and the individual must park elsewhere. In addition, by displaying the NECC hangtag the individual can be located in case of an emergency.
