Handicap Parking Privileges
Handicapped parking spaces have been designated in all major lots. They are located as conveniently as possible to accessible building entrances and are identified by appropriate signs. Parking in the accessway to a handicapped space is prohibited and is subject to a fine. Lots which contain handicap parking spaces are denoted on the parking map.
Use of handicapped spaces is restricted to vehicles occupied by persons who are handicapped and which bear an authorized Handicapped Permit (from the State of Delaware or another state) or bear a handicapped license plate. A valid University of Delaware permit for the lot in which the handicapped space is located is also required at all times. Commuting students with authorized disabilities are eligible to register for a Central or Gold permit regardless of their completed credit hours or off-campus address. On-campus resident students with a valid resident student permit and an authorized Handicapped Permit (from the State of Delaware or another state) or bear a handicapped license plate can park in handicap spaces on campus. Verification of handicap parking privileges is required (copy of plaque or plate registration). Please contact Parking Services for further information on how to apply. Users of handicapped spaces located in the campus pay-to-park lots must pay the appropriate hourly or daily fees.
Persons with handicap parking privileges are eligible to park in handicap spaces, service vehicle spaces, and unpaid meters provided they have a valid University permit for the lot in which they are parking. Vehicles that display valid handicap privileges are exempt from meter activation.
