Accessibility at the University of Oregon

Transportation Services 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, during hours when permit or payment to park is required, must obtain a University of Oregon parking permit or pay hourly for parking. These requirements also apply to ADA spaces on campus.

Commuter Zone permit holders:

If you have a zonal permit from the University of Oregon for any zone and a DMV issued disabled placard, you may park in any ADA space on campus. You must display your DMV issued disabled placard and have a valid University of Oregon parking permit.

Hourly Pay-To-Park Areas

Vehicles displaying an DMV issues disabled placard may park in any hourly pay to park area without payment, except the 13th Ave Garage and the Millrace Garage. 

Visitor ADA Parking:

Visitors displaying a DMV issued Disabled Person Parking placard are eligible to park in marked ADA spaces by obtaining a University of Oregon Visitor Parking Permit from the parking portal. 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 purchase a permit from Transportation Services. 

Access Shuttle

The Access Shuttle provides free on campus transportation for faculty, staff, and students with conditions that impact mobility. The Access Shuttle operates Monday-Friday 7am-5:30pm.

Access shuttle services are currently suspended. Services will resume Fall Term 2021.

Additional Accommodations

If further accessibility options are needed, the Accessible Education Center, the Office of Investigations and Civil Rights Compliance, or the Office of the Dean of Students 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 Accessible Education Center, the Office of Investigations and Civil Rights Compliance, or the Office of the Dean of Students for permission to use ADA spaces on campus or receive a different parking accommodation with purchase of a permit.
