I.5. Enforcement Schedule for Disability Parking

During the regular academic year (fall and spring semester), when classes are in session, disability parking in all areas of campus, is enforced as follows:

6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday:

  • State-issued Disability permit or license plates must be displayed in addition to a University of Idaho-issued Disability permit, or Visitor permit
  • If an individual does not possess a state-issued Disability permit, then a temporary University of Idaho-issued Disability permit must be displayed
  • The above two Disability permit display options validate parking in all designated disability parking spaces, valid campus walkway permit spaces on the campus walkway, regular spaces in all colored lots, meters, and posted timed spaces.

On Saturdays, Sundays, and after 5 p.m. Monday through Friday:

  • Any valid Disability permit (state-issued, or temporary University-issued) must be displayed, but a University of Idaho-issued annual Disability permit is not required to be displayed in addition to a state-issued Disability permit
  • A state-issued, or temporary University-issued Disability permit will validate parking in all designated disability parking spaces, valid campus walkway permit spaces on the campus walkway, regular spaces in all colored lots, meters, and posted timed spaces

During all academic breaks and university holidays (academic breaks include: fall, winter, spring and summer break – see university calendar for specific dates):

  • Any valid Disability permit (state-issued, or temporary University-issued) must be displayed, but a University of Idaho-issued annual Disability permit is not required to be displayed in addition to a state-issued Disability permit 
  • A state-issued, or temporary University-issued Disability permit will validate parking in all designated disability parking spaces, valid campus walkway permit spaces on the campus walkway, regular spaces in all colored lots, meters, and posted timed spaces

Disability permits are NOT valid in the following areas:

  • Areas painted with blue hash-lines
  • Service or delivery spaces
  • Reserved spaces
  • Areas not designated as a parking space
  • Overnight in areas posted “No Parking 2 a.m. to 6 a.m.”

Disability permits may only be used when the permit owner is operating the vehicle or is a passenger. Use of a Disability permit by an individual who is not the permit owner constitutes illegal use. If the Disability permit holder requires the use of a Personal Care Assistant (PCA), the PCA must be named on the Disability permit application. Use of the Disability permit by the PCA is acceptable only when accompanying the disabled permit holder.
