Parking & Transportation


Students who wish to request accommodations should contact their school's Local Student Disability Coordinator (LDC) to initiate the reasonable accommodation exploration process. Many LDCs have resources and forms posted on their website to begin the process. Please see the LDC List to find your School’s contact person or office.


University Disability Resources (UDR) and Parking Services jointly manage all parking policy and parking requests based on disability. Persons who require accessible parking as a reasonable accommodation will not be required to pay more than the applicable rate for similarly situated individuals without disabilities who park in the same facility.

Faculty and Staff wishing to request accommodations may initiate the process by completing the Parking Request Form for parking accommodation requests and/or the Transportation Request Form for van requests

The requestor must also submit medical documentation from a qualified health care provider. Medical documentation must identify functional limitations that support the request, along with the duration that the parking and/or transportation accommodation is needed. Medical documentation may be submitted by a qualified health care provider via the Medical Documentation Request Form.

If unable to utilize the digital forms above, then these documents may also be sent to or via fax at (617) 495-8520
