Employee Parking Information


All vehicles parked on University property must display a valid UD parking permit and a valid license plate.  Employees are assigned parking according to hire date and building information provided by Human Resources.  Human Resources will add all employees with current parking permits to the waiting list automatically.  As space becomes available, employees on the waiting list will be notified by Parking Services.  Parking permits will be revoked upon leaving the university.

Disability Parking

University disability permits are sold only to faculty, staff, and commuter students with disabilities, and are valid in ANY disability space on campus.  Those requesting disability permits are required to provide Parking Services with a copy of their state disability placard for verification. 

Permit holders with a temporary disability may present a doctor's statement to obtain a temporary permit or a short time period.  The doctor's statement should NOT include medical information, but that you need closer parking.  A State temporary disability placard is required in order to receive a temporary permit for an extended time period

All disability parking spaces and zones are enforced 24 hours daily, 7 days a week.  Vehicles must display a University permit along with the state placard.  Disability placards are not valid for residential student lots, unless assigned.  A visitor with a State issued disability placard may stop by the Visitor's Center located on campus to obtain a temporary disability permit.  A vehicle driven by UD faculty, staff, students, volunteers, lab workers, or vendors parked in a disability space must display a valid UD Disability parking permit along with their State issued disability placard.  Disability parking permits are not valid in reserved parking spaces.

Overflow Parking Policy

The University makes every effort to provide adequate parking for all parking permit holders.  Due to space limitations, however, designated lots are sometimes full and one must proceed to an overflow lot.  If space is not available in your assigned lot, please report this to Parking Services at 937-229-2128 from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm weekdays, or Public Safety at 937-229-2121 during all other times.  Our department will respond by citing or towing violators in the area.
