Disability Parking

Disability parking is available for all faculty, staff, students and visitors. See the University's Accessibility Map (PDF) for locations.

Disability Stalls are reserved 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, and 365 days per year. The University has a "no tolerance" policy in regard to stalls reserved for person's with a disability. There is never a good excuse to park illegally in disabled stalls.

the opportunity to participate in daily activities without endangering their health."

There are 2 kinds of parking for disabilities:

1. Reserved Parking:  (temporary or permanent)

  •  Must apply to Parking and Transportation Services
  •  Permit must be displayed on the vehicle when parked
  •  Space is assigned to people with disabilities based on medical need.
  •  Medical documentation will be required to verify the degree of disability and to assess the length of time for which the disability is expected to last.
  •  Applicants will require a valid placard issued by the authority in their jurisdiction. If long term parking is expected, a Saskatchewan Abilities Placard will be required.
  •  Parking and Transportation Services reserves the right to require independent medical assessment.
  •  Location of disabilty parking will be determined based on medical requirements and availablity of space.
  •  There are reserved locations throughout campus.
  • Most generic disabled stalls are also painted with the appropriate symbol.
  • You may use your disabled placard at any of these stalls and pay the appropriate meter charge.
  • If you use these stalls on a regular basis, please contact Parking and Transportation Services as we may be able to arrange a more convenient payment solution.
  • We occasionally use "generic" stalls for short term disabilities by providing users with a permit to park in these areas.
  • The cost of disabled parking is varied (according to location) and is the same as for anyone else using that location.

2.  Generic Disabled: There are many areas throughout campus that we have provided, designated, and signed as generic disabled stalls. These are marked by small white and blue meters carrying the universal disabled symbol.

Conditions for Disability Parking

  • Disability stalls cannot be shared.  If you are driving a disabled person, you may be provided with parking however it will not be in a disabled space. You may carpool but ONLY if the disabled person is present when the vehicle is parked. The disabled person MUST be qualified and able to drive in order to be considered for a disability space. Disability spaces are monitored and any ABUSE could result in a loss of privileges and perhaps violations.
  • Permits must be properly displayed on the rear view mirror at all times when parked in a designated disabled space.
  • Disability stalls are a very valuable resource and some areas are very highly used. Please provide your schedule so that stalls can be shared where possible.
  • If you no longer require the stall or will be away for a period of more than one week (medical leave, sabbatical, classes etc.), please let Parking and Transportation Services know so that we may utilize the stall in your absence. You cannot give someone else permission to use the stall at anytime.
