Handicap Permits

The University requires all vehicles parking in handicap parking areas to display a valid University permit (e.g., employee, student, faculty permit) in ADDITION to a State handicap permit or handicap license plate. Every vehicle parked in a handicap area or using a handicap permit for parking must be the valid owner of the handicap permit.

State handicap permit or license plate may be obtained by visiting the New York State DMV Web site — then follow the on-screen instructions.

In short, both University permit and State handicap permit or handicap license plate are required to park in designated handicap parking areas.

Temporary Handicap Permits:
A temporary University handicap permit may be obtained for up to two weeks only by visiting the Public Safety office. Upon visiting, the applicant needs to submit valid medical documents or doctor’s note which indicates that the applicant has established physical limitations. In addition, a valid University StormCard is required. Public Safety will NOT accept any substitute forms or letters. Failure to display a handicap hangtag for any reason — will result in a parking violation with NO APPEAL. 

Because Public Safety issues temporary handicap permits for only a two-week interval, it is recommended to visit the New York State DMV Web site to obtain a State handicap permit or license plate upon one’s need.
