Northern Essex Community College has Several Parking Areas for Students, Faculty and Staff, and Visitors 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
