Disabled Parking

A George Mason University parking permit must be prominently displayed at all times for all vehicles. DMV issued disabled permits authorize the use of disabled parking at George Mason University owned or operated facilities in conjunction with the display of a valid George Mason University parking permit. Persons may only park in an appropriate disabled space and lot based on permit type. Disabled permit rates are the same as all other George Mason University parking permits issued for comparable periods of time. Permits are not transferable to other persons. Visitors must adhere to the visitor disabled parking requirements listed below.

Visitor Disabled Parking

A DMV issued license plate, hangtag, or other permit is not a valid permit authorizing parking at George Mason University. A George Mason University parking permit is also required when parked at any disabled-designated space, on property owned or operated by George Mason University. Disabled visitors must purchase a temporary parking permit from Parking Services or pay the prevailing rates at visitor parking locations such as meters or the Parking Decks.

Disabled Parking Designation

All parking spaces reserved for the use of persons with disabilities are identified by above grade signs and/or markings painted on the ground within each space. Disabled parking is available to students, faculty, and staff whose vehicles display a valid DMV disabled permit and George Mason University permit, only as follows:

Surface Lots

Disabled parking is available in surface lot spaces marked with above grade disabled signs and/or markings painted on the ground within each space. Only those with lift-equipped vans may park in van lift designated spaces.

Parking Decks

Disabled parking is available in the Mason Pond, Shenandoah or Rappahannock River parking decks, with a valid George Mason University permit at no additional charge when used with a permit valued at the General permit rate or higher. Please contact Parking Services to make arrangements to park in permit levels in any one of the three parking decks. Those without a permit may use disabled designated spaces, but must pay prevailing rates.

Use Restrictions for Disabled Permits

Disabled permits may only be used for and/or by the persons to whom they were issued. Individuals are limited to one disabled permit. Disabled parking is not permitted where stopping, standing, or parking is prohibited to ALL vehicles, or which is reserved for special types of vehicles. Neither does it apply where parking would clearly present a traffic or safety hazard. Photocopied disabled permits are not valid.
