Disability Parking

Effective January 1, 2018, a Sask Abilities Placard is required for all disability parking.

Disability Parking stalls are reserved 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and available to all visitors, faculty, staff and students on campus. Please see the campus parking map for designated disabled parking locations. Users have access to two different formats of disability parking:

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. Users must display a registered Disability Parking permit at all times when using a designated disability parking stall on campus. 

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. 
  • Applicants require a valid Sask Abilities Placard.  If application is complete and approved, Sask Abilities Placard is issued immediately.
  •  Parking and Transportation Services reserves the right to require independent medical assessment.
  •  Location of disability parking will be determined based on medical requirements and availability 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.

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.

Disability Stalls 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.
