Disability Accommodations for Parking

The university strongly supports the provisions of designated disabled parking spaces at a reasonable proximity to campus buildings for individuals who are physically disabled. To park in a disabled parking space, a state-issued disabled parking permit is required. The permit must be valid and be properly attached to the vehicle. Also, a disabled person must be operating the vehicle for it to be parked in a disabled parking space. Parking in or blocking a disabled space will result in a parking fine or having the vehicle towed.

Disabled parking permits may be obtained from Bell County or from your local vehicle registration department. To obtain a disabled parking permit you will need a letter from your attending physician stating the medical condition and estimated length of time of need. A recognized disabled Texas license plate may be used in lieu of a disabled parking decal. In addition to displaying a disabled parking decal, the vehicle must also display the appropriate UMHB parking decal.
