Faculty and Staff with Disabilities

Faculty and staff with accessible needs who are employed at least 40% time are eligible to purchase an Accessible Parking permit. UCLA faculty and staff with disabilities must purchase a parking permit and provide UCLA Transportation with their disabled person's license plate or placard registration.

With a DMV Permanent Disabled Person's Parking Placard/License Plate

Work with your Commute Coordinator to complete the proper form requesting a transfer to an Accessible Parking Blue (APBL) permit. The APBL permit is provided at the same rate as a Yellow permit. To complete the transfer, bring your completed form and a copy of your placard registration or disabled person's license plate registration and your current permit to UCLA Transportation, and we will convert your regular parking assignment to APBL.

With a DMV Temporary Disability Placard

Contact your Commute Coordinator or call UCLA Transportation at (310) 206-3884 for further instructions.

Without a DMV Placard/License Plate Who Would Like to Request a Short-Term Transfer to Alternate Parking.

Work with your Commute Coordinator to complete the temporary permit request form. The form must also be completed and signed by your personal physician. Temporary permits will be issued for no more than one quarter and cannot be renewed more than six times consecutively. A new form will be required for each temporary permit.

Graduate student staff, research assistants, and teaching assistants employed at least 40% time may purchase parking on a quarterly basis during the term of their employment.
