The Security office at the West Windsor Campus is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and is committed to providing a safe campus environment. The Security Department is also responsible for protecting college property and the enforcement of all college regulations, including parking and traffic control. The James Kerney Campus Security office provides the same services and is open during the normal operating hours of that facility. Red telephones are located at either end of hallways and vestibules throughout the campus. These telephones provide direct communication with the Security office and should be used for emergency reasons only. Campus crime statistics are available upon request.
Visitors to Campus
The College is host to many organizations and community activities throughout the year. Visitors
who do not have an appointment with a specific campus official should first report to the Security
Office. Visitors who are guests of current students are the responsibility of the host student and
will be expected to abide by policies and procedures set forth for all students. Visitors/guests
will not be permitted to enter classrooms where instruction is being provided without prior approval
by the classroom instructor.
Parking Locations and Procedures
Student parking at the West Windsor Campus is available in the East and West parking lots I and
II. Unless given advance authorization and permit by the Security office, use of all other parking
areas is prohibited. Parking along curbs, fire zones, and loading/unloading areas is prohibited.
Limited free parking is provided for students at the James Kerney Campus. Several parking garages
are available in the immediate area.
Campus parking violation tickets carry fines which must be paid within ten (10) days at the Bursar's
office. Ticket appeals must be made within ten (10) days to the Director of College Safety & Security,
located in the Library Building. Unpaid fines or repeated violations may result in a financial hold
being placed on your student records, the suspension of privileges and/or disciplinary action imposed
by the Student Conduct and Discipline Committee.
Mercer County Community College has a vital interest in maintaining a healthy and safe smoke-free environment
for its students, faculty, staff, and visitors. Smoking on campus grounds is prohibited. All members of the
college community, including all individuals and groups using college space and facilities, are accountable
for compliance. This policy is further detailed -- including penalties for violations -- in the college's
OMB #695 as well as in the MCCC Student Handbook.
No pets, with the exception of service dogs, are permitted on campus grounds or in campus
buildings. If pets are required for a classroom assignment or a planned part of an authorized
campus activity, the owner must have secured previous approval from the classroom instructor
or the Director of Student Activities.
