Parking For Individuals with Disabilities

Long Term Parking:

Any student, faculty or staff with a temporary or permanent state disability placard is eligible to purchase a disability permit. A state placard or proof of a disability license plate must be presented to Transit & Parking Services as verification. A university "D" permit, in conjunction with a state disability placard or disability license plate, allows a vehicle to park in "accessible ", "A", "C", or "R" spaces.

A Temporary Disability or "TD" Permit allows a vehicle to park in any "accessible ", "A", "C", or "R" parking space for the duration of the disability. Medical verification or evidence of a temporary disability must be provided to Transit & Parking Services when applying for this permit. A state placard or disability license plate is not required to obtain a "TD" Permit.

Short Term Parking:

For short-term use, accessible parking for individuals with disabilities is available through one of the following options:

  • A Day Permit, when used in conjunction with a state placard or disability license plate, will allow a vehicle to park in any "accessible ", "A", "C", "R" or accessible meter space on a daily basis for $5/day.
  • Metered spaces for individuals with disabilities are located throughout campus. These metered spaces are marked with a universal disability symbol and require a displayed state placard or disability license plate. Meters cost 50¢/half-hour.
  • Accessible " parking for individuals with disabilities is also available in the Day Lot and the Express Shuttle Lots.

Please note that some accessible spaces require both a state disability placard and a UW permit. This requirement will be noted on the sign at the parking space.  All Disability spaces are enforced 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
