Transportation and Parking Information
Parking and transportation on the campus is coordinated by Parking Management. Disabled parking placards and license plates are issued by the County Tax Assessor-Collector’s office. The information provided below is a brief overview of the resources and procedures involved in securing accessible parking privileges.
To access disabled decal for parking on-campus, individuals need a county-issued disabled parking mirror tag (blue or red) or a disabled license plate. Present this county-issued mirror tag and a driver’s license to the office of Disability Services in Evans Hall. The ADA accommodation letter for parking will be generated based on this documentation. Next, present the letter to Parking Management in Harrington Science Building to receive an accessible parking decal. With a county-issued disabled hangtag or disabled license plate PLUS a PVAMU parking permit or paid visitor parking pass, a person may park in any available unrestricted space
