Resident Students Parking space on campus is extremely limited, so please evaluate available transportation options before bringing a car. Your JWU ID gains you access to campus-to-campus shuttles and the statewide network of RIPTA buses.
Parking space at Harborview Center, Renaissance Hall is on a first-come, first-serve basis, and Harborside Village is determined by a lottery system conducted at the conclusion of Opening Weekend in September. If you don't secure a space in the lottery, you'll be placed on a waiting list and issued a permit for Harborside’s E or F Lots until a space becomes available at your residence hall. Capital Cove parking is available to all resident students with the exception of freshmen.
If your residence hall doesn't offer on-site parking, you can obtain a parking permit for E or F Lots.
