Disability Parking Information

Effective Winter quarter 2019

The Center for Accessible Education will no longer issue parking permits for students who do not qualify for state-issued DMV disability placards. For all students seeking on-campus parking beyond Fall quarter 2018, please refer to the DMV website for more information on criteria for disability permits. You can also click this link for the DMV website.

Where do I go on campus for disability parking?

For students who have a DMV-issued parking placard, you may take your placard receipt directly to Parking Services to purchase and receive your campus parking permit.

So what type of parking is available through the CAE?

The CAE is the entity on campus that determines reasonable academic accommodations for students with disabilities. The CAE does not assign disability-based parking permits. For any questions related to postsecondary academic accommodations, you can refer to the ADA site for more information (the hyperlink will take you directly there).

Who determines eligibility for disability-based parking permits?

Each state establishes criteria and procedures to issue accessible parking permits (often in the form of distinctive license plates or placards) to individuals with disabilities. For the state of California, the information is provided through the DMV website.

What about accessible parking?

A parking permit assigned to a student based on disability is distinctly different from the University’s obligation to provide accessible parking allocations. UCLA is committed to providing accessible parking spaces as described in the mandate. Specifically, the ADA/504 office works with transportation regarding accessible spaces, signage and barrier removals as described in the CA/ADA mandate.
