Disabled Parking Permits

In order to use campus parking spaces designated as disabled accessible, vehicles must display the appropriate parking permits, placards and plates. Please note that with the exception of Disabled Veteran License Plates, disabled placards or plates do not waive applicable parking fees. Depending on your needs, you may purchase an annual university disabled parking permit, a temporary university disabled permit or a daily disabled parking permit. The permit should be displayed along with the DMV issued placard or plate.

Annual University Disabled Parking Permits

Annual disabled accessible parking permits may be purchased at the Parking and Transportation Services office located directly off of 16th Street. The following items and information are needed when purchasing the permit: 

  • A completed parking permit application (Applications are available in our office.)
  • A valid photo ID
  • A DMV issued placard or vehicle registration
  • A DMV "Authorization Letter" indicating ownership of the disabled access placard. (This is not necessary if the vehicle has disabled plates.)

Prior to being approved, all applications will be verified through the DMV. Once your information is on file, you will be able to renew future annual parking permits by mail. In the event that the disabled individual cannot pay the entire permit fee in advance, payment arrangements may be provided.

Temporary University Disabled Parking Permits

Temporarily disabled individuals are eligible to purchase a temporary university disabled permit. The same requirements listed for the annual permit above apply to temporarily disabled individuals; however, the expiration date of the temporary disabled parking permit will coincide with the expiration date of the temporary DMV placard.

Disabled Visitors

Disabled visitors may obtain a one-day parking permit at the Parking and Transportation Services office, on our website or at a parking permit dispenser located on the top floors of the Whalen and West Stadium Parking Complexes. Daily permits may be used at any disabled parking space throughout the day indicated on the permit. The permit should be displayed on the dash alongside the DMV issued placard.

There are also disabled accessible metered spaces located on campus. These spaces do not require a campus parking permit; however, a DMV issued placard or plate must be displayed and the meter fee must be paid. Please see Disabled Parking Map for locations of disabled accessible parking meters.

Disabled Veterans

Veterans who have a 100 percent service connected disability may be eligible for Disabled Veteran License Plates. Those who are interested in obtaining this type of license plate should check with the DMV to determine eligibility. Vehicles displaying the Disabled Veteran License Plates shown below are exempt from campus parking fees.
