Binghamton University Disability Parking Policy and Procedures

Disability parking is available in numerous locations throughout the center of campus. Spaces are concentrated in parking lots closest to campus buildings and are designated by pavement stencils of the international access symbol and by appropriate signage indicating the category of disability parking authorization required.

All drivers bringing vehicles to campus must properly register their vehicles with Parking Services. General campus parking regulations and restrictions apply to all vehicles regardless of drivers' or passengers' disability status.  (While students are not permitted to bring cars to campus during their freshman year, students with significant mobility impairments may contact Parking Services to request special dispensation based on disability-related needs.)

The following disability parking authorization categories are designed to maximize campus accessibility for individuals qualifying for disability parking:

Regular Disability Parking

In order to park in "Regular Disability Parking" spaces on campus, individuals must:

L-Permit Parking

This level of parking is reserved for drivers whose disabilities limit them to such an extent that the walking distance from "Regular Disability Parking" to building destinations is too far for them to physically manage.  In order to park in L-Permit locations on campus, individuals must:

Wheelchair-Only Parking

This level of parking is reserved for drivers or passengers who require wider transfer aisles for the easy loading and unloading of wheelchairs or scooters.  In order to park in Wheelchair-Only Parking on campus, individuals must:

Temporary Disability Parking Authorizations

Temporary campus-based disability parking authorizations may be granted for a maximum of 14 days duration in order to allow applicants time to obtain a State Disability Parking Hangtag.  The length (not to exceed 14 days) and category of the authorization will be determined by SSD based on the evident nature and severity of the applicant's distance walking limitations.
