Accessible Parking

There are 435 accessible parking spaces on the KU Lawrence campus, including recent (and ongoing) improvements to the following parking lots:

  • Lot 2 - converted to ADA parking, with a total of 14 ADA spaces (an increase of eight spaces) between Marvin and Budig halls.
  • Lot 54 - when construction is completed in late September, lot 54 will have 6 ADA spaces (an increase of three spaces), with access to Murphy and Green halls, and the Engineering buildings. 
  • Murphy Hall Circle Drive - grade was leveled, and rebuilt with 5 ADA spaces (an increase of three spaces) on the west side of Murphy Hall.  

In addition, we plan to add another 30 spaces over the next several years, to improve accessibility to campus buildings.  It is our goal to be as responsive (and flexible) as possible with the location of these new spaces.
