Accessibility at the University of Oregon

The Department of Parking and Transportation strives to make the University of Oregon campus accessible to all, regardless of conditions that limit mobility. We are also committed to providing clear and accurate information for the faculty, staff, students, and visitors who travel to campus.


ADA Spaces

All persons who park in University-owned parking lots, other than in metered spaces, during the period of 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Monday through Friday) must obtain and display a University of Oregon parking permit. These requirements also apply to ADA spaces on campus.

Faculty, Staff, and Student permit holders:

If you have monthly a permit from the University of Oregon and a DMV issued disabled placard, you may park in any ADA space on campus. Student permit holders may park in ADA spaces in Faculty/Staff lots. You must display both your University of Oregon parking permit and your DMV issued disabled placard.

Visitor ADA Parking:

Visitors displaying a DMV issued Disabled Person Parking placard are eligible to park in marked ADA spaces while displaying a University of Oregon Visitor Parking Permit. You may also use the convenient Parkmobile app to purchase a 'virtual permit' which allows you to park in an ADA space without needing to pick up a permit from Parking and Transportation. Additional information about visitor permits can be found on the Visitor Parking page.


Meter Parking

Faculty, staff, students, and visitors displaying a DMV issued Disabled Person Parking placard may park in individually metered spaces on campus for the duration of the meter without charge. Long term metered parking is available on University St. between 18th Ave. and 13th Ave. Short term meter parking is available on 13th Ave and in Lot 36A near Oregon hall, and in Lot 12A near Lawrence hall.

This does not apply to Pay-to-Park lots, such as Lots 15, 17, 29A and along 15th Ave.


Access Shuttle

The Access Shuttle provides free on campus transportation for faculty, staff, and students with conditions that impact mobility. Verification of eligibility for this service must be established through either Accessible Education (for students) or Affirmative Action (for faculty and staff). The Access shuttle operates Monday-Friday 7am-5:30pm. Find out more about the access shuttle.


Additional Accommodations

If further accessibility options are needed, the Accessible Education Center or the Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity are available to review individual situations and determine if a different parking accommodation is appropriate.

Additionally, faculty, staff, and students who do not have a DMV Disabled Person Parking placard, but are in need of mobility accommodations, may contact the Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity or Accessible Education Center for permission to use ADA spaces on campus or receive a different parking accommodation with purchase of a permit.
