Accessible Parking

All subscribers parking in handicapped accessible spaces in controlled lots/decks must display BOTH a valid university parking permit for their assigned lot or deck and a disabled person placard or license plate, issued by the state Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or equivalent office for the state in which the car is registered, indicating that the driver is permitted to park in an accessible space for persons with disabilities.

Students with temporary disabilities may request permission to park in designated handicapped spaces in their designated lot or deck. Additionally, if necessary, parking subscribers with temporary disabilities may request to move to a more proximate location. However, parking subscribers must have a disabled placard before consideration for parking reassignment will be granted. In all cases, parking subscribers must pay the applicable subscriber fee to park at any VCU parking location. VCU metered spaces are limited to 4 hours for drivers with disabilities.

Failure to follow documented procedures will result in a $100.00 parking fine if you are found parking in a handicapped space without the proper permits.
