Persons with disabilities

Parking access with a state-issued placard

We honor any state's disabled person placards in the following parking spaces on campus:

  • designated blue spaces
  • service vehicle spaces (a posted time limit may apply)
  • commuter ("A" or "C") and residential permit spaces
  • metered/visitor pay parking spaces, with the exception of:
    • Li Ka Shing Center / Beckman lot (L-15): "Pay-by-space-number" is enforced at specific parking spaces.

Parking for persons with a temporary disability

If you have a temporary disability, you may apply for a temporary “Service Vehicle” courtesy permit from Parking & Transportation Services - NOT VALID IN DISABLED PARKING SPACES! Please provide us with a completed Medical Certification for Temporary Disabilities. Cart or Temporary Service Vehicle Permit form (PDF, 124 KB) signed by a licensed medical provider.

We can issue only one temporary “Service Vehicle” courtesy permit for up to 1 week. If a permit of longer duration is necessary, you'll need to apply to the DMV for a state placard.
