Physically challenged students, faculty and staff who possess a State of Texas disabled placard or disabled registration tags are required to register their vehicle with Parking and Transportation. A brown mobility permit will be issued entitling them to park in designated handicap areas. Special permits are available to students who must park close due to a temporary injury or illness. Requests for temporary special permits must be made to Parking and Transportation. Temporary special permits are not authorized to park in any area designated for the physically challenged (disabled).
Those wishing to utilize the disabled parking spaces on campus must display both a valid University parking permit AND either a State disabled parking placard or license plate issued to the operator of the vehicle. Visitors requiring access to the disabled spaces may stop at Parking and Transportation at the Sam South Complex, 2424 Sam Houston Avenue, to obtain a permit. State issued disabled permits are available through the office of the County Tax Assessor Collector.
