Disabled Parking and Permit Information
UC Santa Cruz has two types of parking spaces for those who have disability-related parking needs: standard and van-accessible disabled (or ADA) parking spaces, which are outlined in blue stripes and have a loading zone next to them, and Medical spaces. Medical spaces are standard-sized parking spaces, and are intended for those who need close-in parking due to a medical condition, but who don’t require the extra space provided by ADA parking spaces.
If You Have a DMV placard or license plate:
Anyone with a DMV placard or license plate may park in the following spaces; however, affiliates (e.g., faculty, staff, students, volunteers, those receiving remuneration for services, and those participating in University programs) must also display a valid UCSC parking permit:
For campus affiliates, the use of a DMV placard or license plate alone, without a UCSC parking permit, is permissible only in metered spaces; parking without a campus permit in an ADA space – even with a DMV placard – is a ticketable offense.
If You Don't Have a DMV placard or license plate:
You may apply for a Medical parking permit. This requires submitting medical documentation to Transportation and Parking Services (TAPS). The documentation must be from a medical professional (e.g., physician, surgeon, chiropractor, optometrist, etc.), and should include the duration of the close-in parking need.
If You have a Medical permit, you may park in:
• Medical spaces
