Accessible parking is at a premium on the KU Lawrence Campus, and is first come, first serve, every day. Please feel free to call or visit Parking & Transit, so that our staff can help you to determine what your best options may be.
Anyone with a registered accessible placard and a paid KU parking permit can park in any regular parking space (Yellow, Red, Blue, Gold, Park & Ride, and Housing).
The Kansas Department of Revenue has an online form for an accessible placard application on their web page.
There are ADA-compliant accessible parking spaces in most parking lots on campus. However, in some parking lots there is no accessible entrance to nearby buildings, and those spaces have then been moved to other areas where additional accessible parking may be needed.
The ratio for accessible parking spaces in a given parking lot is determined by the ADA regulations. We calculate the number required per parking lot, but that number is applied to the campus as a whole.
Individuals with any valid KU permit and registered ADA placard 3may park in parking garages 4without an additional garage-specific permit.
