Accessible decals will be distributed only if the government issued pass is valid for the Adelphi community member.

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.

All Accessible Parking Decals and Accessible Temporary Parking Permits (students, staff, and faculty) are issued through Adelphi’s Public Safety office.
