Accessible Parking

To maintain and improve accessibility on campus, University Parking and Transit Services strives to maintain a clean, safe, and friendly parking environment, and accommodates campus parking needs and growth by maximizing utilization of available parking spaces.

Accessible parking spaces are designated by signs bearing the international symbol of accessibility. These spaces are for use by students, faculty, and staff members with valid, government-issued disabled parking permits or placards who possess a University-issued parking permit for the lot in which those spaces are located.

If you have a government-issued disabled parking permit or placard then:

  1. If you also already have a University parking permit for a specific lot, you can use the accessible parking spaces in your assigned lot.  To best serve the needs of those individuals with disabilities or mobility impairments, we request that you register your disabled permits or placards with Parking and Transit Services, so that Parking and Transit Services may issue you a University disabled parking permit.
  2. If you do not already have a University parking permit, upon providing a copy of the government-issued placard to Parking Services, you will be granted priority to apply for and purchase a University parking permit (at regular rates).
  3. If you are assigned to a lot that poses accessibility challenges for you and you need an accommodation, please direct your request to the appropriate office below for reassignment.  Reassignments will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and often may lead to reassignment to the Fine Lot.  The Fine Lot has a fully accessible shuttle that runs on a regular basis throughout the day.  When the shuttle is not running (e.g. evenings, weekends and University breaks), the Fine permit allows for parking at alternate locations on campus.

If you do not have a government-issued permit or placard but you have a disability as defined by federal and state law, you will be assigned to the Fine Lot for 30 days to allow you to obtain the government-issued placard.

If you do not have a government-issued permit or placard but you have a temporary medical condition that affects mobility, you will be assigned a Fine Lot permit valid for 30 days. If additional time is needed or you have questions or concerns, please direct your request to the appropriate office below.
