Disabled Parking
All vehicles parked on campus must display a valid campus permit. A Disabled placard issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles is not a substitute for a campus permit.

Your best permit options …
  • If you have a Disabled placard or license plate and are an infrequent visitor to UCSB

    Purchase a daily or short-term permit from permit dispensers located in parking lots throughout campus. View this Short Term Rates table to determine the cost of a permit.

  • If you become disabled

    The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is the sole authorizing agency for Disabled placards. If getting to your campus destination imposes a hardship, we suggest that you contact the DMV for information about obtaining a Disabled placard. The DMV determines the duration of the placard.

    A valid UCSB permit and a DMV-authorized Disabled placard entitles you to park in any “Disabled” space on campus.

  • If you are a disabled UCSB student and wish to apply for a Student parking permit

    Students residing within two miles of campus need to visit the Parking Services office to apply for a Student permit. Be prepared to present your Disabled certificate and placard from the DMV. (Click here to determine whether the street on which you live is within two miles of campus.)

    Students living outside the two-mile exclusion zone can apply for a Student permit online. Click Buy your parking permit HERE to begin an order.
Where to park
Visit our drive-up Information Kiosk to speak to a service rep about where to look for conveniently-located parking. You might also use your visit to the Kiosk to pick up a campus map or buy a parking permit from a nearby permit dispenser.

The Information Kiosk is open Monday–Friday from 7:30AM to 8:00PM, and on Saturday–Sunday from 7:30AM to 5:00PM.

While all vehicles parked on campus must display a valid UCSB parking permit, a Disabled placard entitles you to park your vehicle in spaces not otherwise available to campus visitors, staff or students.
 
  • Every parking lot and structure on campus has spaces allocated to Disabled parking. The spaces are marked by a blue “Disabled” sign or curb stop. The approximate locations of the spaces are indicated by Handicap Icon Disabled on the Interactive Map .
     
  • Besides specifically allocated spaces, Disabled placard holders may park in any lot or space designated for visitors, students, faculty or staff.
     
  • Time-restricted spaces may be used without regard for the posted time limit.
     
  • Parking in metered spaces without paying the meter is allowed, provided that you display a valid campus permit. Without a valid campus permit, you must pay the meter.
Areas to avoid
Disabled placards are not valid in fire lanes, reserved or restricted areas, or in areas not designated for parking. Parking is not permitted at red curbs or in the blue crosshatched areas adjacent to the accessible spaces.❖

How Disabled spaces are allocated
Parking Services makes every effort to establish convenient parking spaces for disabled persons. The number and type of spaces are determined in accordance with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines and specifications. The spaces are normally installed in parking areas close to building entrances.

We consider recommendations from the Disabled Students Program and other campus constituents to help us locate Disabled spaces.
