Jump-starting Cars

DPS provides jumpstarts for all vehicles on University Property. There is no cost for this service. We ask that you call (609) 258-1000 when you arrive at your vehicle and put the hood up. Both DPS Public Safety Patrol Officers and Security Officers are trained to jump-start cars. If parked in the student parking lot please let us know what row you are located. You will be required to sign a form permitting the jumpstart.

If your vehicle is contiguous to the campus such as University place or parked in a roadway within the core campus, DPS will provide a jumpstart.  Every patrol car carries jumpstart boxes in their vehicles and all officers are trained on jump-starting cars.
