Permit Types

  • Accessibility

    The University strives to make our campus accessible to our entire community, regardless of mobility limitations. Parking Services offers accessibility parking permits to faculty, staff and students with permanent or temporary disabilities. These permits can be purchased online or through the parking services office with verification of your state-issued credentials.

    Visitors to the DU campus who require accessible parking may utilize the designated spaces in our visitor/hourly lots. Drivers must display a state-issued disability-parking permit such as a placard or license plate. These spaces, like all visitor parking, require payment via meter, parking kiosk, or mobile device (via Parkmobile app). All DU parking lots have accessible parking.

    To park in any accessible parking space on campus, you must display both a valid state-issued disability credential (placard or plates) and an accessibility permit issued from Parking Services. Unlike regular DU parking permits, which are restricted to certain lots, an accessibility permit, along with a state-issued disability placard or license plate, allows the permit holder to park in any accessible parking space on campus, including those spaces located in visitor lots, without paying additional fees.

    • Accessibility permits are available for an annual fee, prorated throughout the year, to all students, faculty or staff. See current permit pricing. These permits can be purchased online or through the Parking and Mobility Services office with verification of your state-issued disability parking credentials. If you have already purchased or renewed your parking permit for the school year, please contact Parking and Mobility Services to exchange your permit for an accessibility permit.
    • Students, faculty or staff experiencing a temporary disability can obtain a temporary accessibility permit through Parking and Mobility Services with verification of state-issued temporary disability parking credentials. Temporary accessibility permits expire on the same date as the state-issued permit. Should your state-issued permit be renewed, present your renewal credentials to Parking Services to extend the expiration of your temporary accessibility permit. Temporary accessibility permits can be issued for a maximum of 180 days from the date of initial issuance.

      For persons who currently hold a parking permit for any lot on campus, there is no additional fee to obtain a temporary accessibility permit.

      For persons who do not currently hold a parking permit, a temporary accessibility permit can be purchased at the current annual accessibility permit price, prorated monthly for the duration of the temporary disability.

     

    For more information regarding accessible parking on campus, or to obtain an accessibility permit, please contact Parking and Mobility Services at parking@du.edu or 303-871-3210. For questions about ADA accommodations or to report concerns regarding disability discrimination, please contact the Office of Equal Opportunity at 303-871-7016 or EqualOpportunity@du.edu.
