What drivers with disabilities need to know about parking at UNF.

Parking for those with disabilities

The University provides parking spaces for drivers who have disabilities.

 

If you display both a valid UNF parking permit (Daily or Vendor) for that lot or garage and either a state-issued disability parking placard or a UNF-issued temporary mobility impairment placard, you may park in a disabled parking space.

 

If you have a State or UNF issued disability parking permit and need a daily parking permit, please go to one of the Parking Services Information booths. These are located at the first buildings to the right as you enter campus from either I-295 or Kernan Boulevard. Show the attendant your disability permit and then you may purchase a daily parking permit for $5 that will allow you to park in one of the interior campus disability parking spaces.    

Shuttle service for those with disabilities

The shuttle buses are equipped with wheel chair ramps and are ADA compliant.

 

If you need special accommodations, please contact Parking & Transportation Services at (904) 620-5718 for assistance. We will attempt to make all reasonable accommodations.

Temporary Impairment

UNF Temporary Impairment Permits may be obtained within the Parking & Transformation Services building (52); first building on the right of the I-295 campus entrance.

Parking Services can issue a temporary UNF disability permit for up to thirty (30) days for the following reasons:

  • With a physician's note requesting the ability to park in disability spaces.
  • At the request of the UNF Disability Resource Center.
  • With an obvious injury such as a cast on a leg or ankle.

All requests for a temporary disability parking permit for more than 30 days are advised to apply for the State of Florida disability permit.

ALL disability permits in use at UNF must be displayed accompanied by the correct category of UNF parking permit for the area being utilized. Example: If a person parks on the 1st floor of a parking garage in a disability parking space then a UNF Faculty/Staff permit must be visible as well as the disability permit.

If a person with a State issued disability parking permit is living in Housing at UNF, they may park in any disability space in the "Blue" (formerly known as a Premium) parking permit locations on campus. This does not include the 1st floor areas in the parking garages.

If a person has a "Gray" (formerly known as lot 14/18/53 or Discount) UNF parking permit and has been issued a State disability parking permit, they have the option of upgrading to a "Blue" (formerly known as Premium) parking permit. There is a price difference and the person will be responsible for the upgrade cost. If the person no longer requires the temporary State disability parking permit, the person may down grade back to a Gray permit and can recover the cost difference.
