Accessible parking areas are located throughout the campus and are identified on the Parking Map available at the time students receive their campus parking permit. All students, faculty and staff are required to have current campus parking hangtags displayed on their rearview mirror in order to legally park on campus. Student parking fees are included in the student activity fees paid at registration. There is no additional charge to students for accessible parking permits. The accessible hangtag permits have a magnetic strip coded to allow users access to any gated lot with handicapped parking spaces on campus. Remote control gate openers are available for check out in the Parking Office to persons with mobility impairments who cannot use the hangtag swipe machine.
The quickest and best method to obtain accessible parking privileges on campus is to take your State handicapped placard or your handicapped license plate number along with a copy of the registration form issued with the placard or license plate to the Parking Office in the Parking Garage on Zach Curlin Drive. A campus accessible permit will be automatically issued.
If you have a permanent disability but do not yet have a State placard or license plate, you may print off the form at this link: http://tennessee.gov/revenue/forms/titlereg/f1310301Fill-in.pdf. If you have not received your State permit by the beginning of the semester, Parking Services can provide temporary accessible parking for you, given the appropriate medical documentation, until you receive your State placard or license.
Persons with temporary mobility impairments or impairments of a fluctuating nature may request a two week temporary accessible parking permit from Parking Services. If the temporary condition will last longer than two weeks, the person should apply for a temporary placard from the State: http://tennessee.gov/revenue/forms/titlereg/f1310301Fill-in.pdf.
