Ohio University

Accessible Parking Information

We are committed to diversity and inclusiveness with the goal of providing a welcoming environment for faculty/staff, students and guests requiring accessible transportation and parking accommodations. 


State-issued accessibility permits are honored on campus following permit registration with the Transportation and Parking Services Office.  Students and faculty/staff should have an accompanying Ohio University permit when utilizing campus parking resources.  

Accessibility permits are valid within marked accessible spaces as well as all regular spaces within university parking lots.  Permits are not valid within metered or hourly facilities, reserved parking spaces, curbs, roadways, grass, or within residential student storage parking lots (unless a specific permit has been issued to accompany the disability permit for these areas). 

Permit Registration

State-issued accessibility permits utilized by faculty/staff and students should be registered with the Transportation and Parking Services prior to parking on campus.  Permit registration is performed to limit permit abuse on campus and protect accessible parking areas. Registration for accessibility permits is completed in person at the Transportation & Parking Services Office. Please provide the following items at time of registration:

  • Accessibility Permit--1 permit may be registered per customer
  • Accessibility Permit Registration --permit registration form issued by Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

Accompanying Permit Requirements

Faculty/Staff and students should display a valid Ohio University permit in conjunction with their accessibility permit when parking on campus. Please contact our Customer Care Team with questions regarding parking permit options.
