Parking and Transportation


Disabled spaces and permits are designated by signs bearing the national disabled parking symbol. These spaces are for use by students, faculty and staff members with disabilities as defined by federal and state law.  Special parking is not available for reasons other than disabilities.

    • If you have a government issued placard allowing you to park in spaces designated for parking for people with disabilities then:
  1. If you also already have an SU parking permit for a specific lot, please provide a copy of that government issued placard to Parking Services and you can use the designated disabled parking spaces in your assigned lot.
  2. If you do not already have an SU parking permit and upon providing a copy of the government issued placard to Parking Services, you will be granted priority to apply for and purchase a parking permit (at regular rates).
  3. If you are not assigned to a lot that best meets your needs, you will be assigned to the Fine lot which has a fully accessible shuttle which runs on a regular basis throughout the day.  When the shuttle is not running (e.g., evenings, weekends, and University breaks), the Fine permit allows for parking at alternate locations on campus.
    • If you do not have a government issued placard but you have a disability as defined by federal and state law, you will be assigned to the Fine lot for 30 days to allow you to obtain the government-issued placard.
    • If you do not have a government issued placard but you have a temporary medical condition such that you need special parking, you will be assigned to the Fine lot for 30 days.  If additional time is needed or if you have questions or concerns please direct your request per below.
