Handicap Parking

Students with handicap parking placards or tags may park in any campus handicap parking space or legal parking space, excluding fire lanes, no parking zones, reserved parking areas, service zones, and in front of handicap curb cuts. Metered parking spaces are available at various locations on campus, but all students who use these spaces must insert the proper amount of money in the meter or they may receive a ticket.

All university students and employees parking on campus, including those who use handicap placards or tags, must obtain a USM parking decal by registering with the Department of Parking Management, located on the first floor of McLemore Hall. For more information, visit the Parking Management website.

When students use campus handicap parking spaces without a visible USM handicap parking decal or a state handicap placard or tag, they are at risk for receiving a parking ticket and having their cars towed.
