Special Parking Permits
Accessible Parking Permits

Students, faculty and staff who have a government issued accessible pass and require campus parking must obtain university accessible parking permits for parking in designated accessible areas. Passes will be distributed only if the government issued pass is valid for the Adelphi community member and the vehicle is properly registered with the university and displays the authorized decal on the rear bumper (driver’s side).

Visitors who require accessible parking can obtain a one-day visitor pass to park in accessible areas as long as a government issued permit is visible.

Adelphi accessible passes may be obtained by:

  • Faculty and staff seeking temporary accessible parking permits should go to the Health Services Center located in Waldo Hall, first floor or can call ext. 6000.
  • Faculty and staff seeking permits that expire the same date as their government issue permit should go to Public Safety and Transportation, Levermore Hall room 113 or can call ext. 3500. Government permits and Driver’s License required.
  • Students seeking accessible parking permits should go to the Student Access Office, Post Hall or can call ext. 3806. Government permits and Driver’s License required.

Vehicles without the proper accessible permits or one-day visitor passes that are parked in accessible areas will be summoned and may be towed at the owner’s expense.

Note:  All Adelphi accessible parking permits will expire the same date as their government issued accessible parking permit. Faculty and staff will be required to obtain new accessible parking permits at that time. Furthermore, if the faculty or staff member changes vehicles or registration they must come to public safety for a new permit. If the Adelphi placard becomes unreadable a new permit must be obtained from public safety.
