Glen Rock–Boro Hall is one of two train stations in Glen Rock, New Jersey to be served by New Jersey Transit. It is located adjacent to the Glen Rock Municipal Building, the Glen Rock Bus Station, and several businesses along Rock Road. Pedestrian access to both platforms is available along Rock Road, and from a pedestrian underpass on Maple Avenue and the entrance to the station's parking lot on Glen Avenue. Paid parking is available by use of a ticket machine system; previously the borough employed parking meters.

This station is one of four on the Bergen County Line with raised platforms. Although the platforms are not high-level, Boro Hall is handicap accessible via use of two ramps, one on either side of the platform.
