In accordance with the American with Disabilities Act as amended, the University reserves parking spaces on campus for individuals with disabilities. Parking in these spaces is always free with a valid disabled placard issued to by any state.
UVM students, faculty, staff, vendors, other affiliates with disabilities(such as temporary employees, volunteers) are required to register their placard/plate(s) and vehicle with the Transportation and Parking Services office. By providing this placard or plate information, along with the documentation confirming to whom it is registered, we can properly enforce these spaces on campus. This also allows us to make a notation under each of your vehicles indicating your placard information, to inform us of your eligibility when you forget to display. Once registered, the placard or plate will be considered to be the UVM parking permit and must be displayed at all times when parked on campus.
Any vehicle displaying a valid accessible placard/license plate may park in any accessible space, regular space, or meter (without paying). Spaces you should not park in are spaces which are reserved, either for a person (with a specific permit number at the head of it), or spaces we have coned or barricaded off unless they are specially reserved for disability parking, Service Vehicle spaces, any space outlined for a specific use (for instance electronic vehicle charging station spaces, unless you are charging), or any other space on campus with a sign indicating it is a towable offense to park in it without the proper authorization. There is also no parking in lined out areas or fire lanes (roadway).
Not all persons who need accessible parking need van accessible spaces. Whenever possible please be mindful and use a standard accessible space. This will allow those who require the use of a designated van accessible space access to those spaces.
