ADA accessible parking permit usage is restricted to the permit holder, or to the individual transporting (and only during the time they are transporting) the permit holder.
Faculty, staff and students using an ADA permit on campus are required to register their ADA permit with the Office of Parking and Transportation, and display a campus permit while parked.
Visitors to campus must secure a daily permit to park in campus lots, or may utilize metered areas or hourly pay lots. Metered areas must be paid at all times unless a "meter exempt" placard is displayed.
ADA permits may be displayed from the rear view mirror or on the dashboard of the vehicle. Campus parking permits must be displayed from the rear view mirror of the vehicle.
Faculty and staff who need temporary parking assistance should contact the Office of Equal Opportunity and Access.
Students who need temporary parking assistance should contact the the Office of Student Access and Accommodation Services. Student Access and Accommodation Services cannot and does not issue ADA accessible permits, but may be able to assist in other ways.
ADA Accessible parking for guests with the ADA permit is available throughout University parking lots. Vehicles must display their state issued ADA permit or plates. During special events guests will be required to pay the special event fee to park.
Misuse of an ADA accessible parking permit will result in a University fine. Individuals who allow their ADA permit to be misused may be reported to the Illinois Secretary of State's office which could result in the revocation of the ADA parking permit. ADA spaces on campus are strictly enforced. The striped areas adjacent to the space are part of the accessible space. No vehicle staging is allowed in ADA spaces unless an ADA permit is displayed. Maximum monetary penalty amounts for violations are determined by the Illinois Secretary of State's office.
