Handicap Parking Permit

Disabled individuals may contact the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (select link in top left corner that reads "BMV 4826”) for information about and assistance with obtaining a state issued handicap parking permit.

To park on the Dayton Campus, in addition to displaying a state handicap placard:

  • Handicap faculty, staff, and contract staff must purchase a faculty/staff permit.
  • Handicap students must purchase a commuter student, resident or park and ride permit.
  • Park and ride permits are valid in Raider Lot 20. Specific information about permits and fees can be found in other paragraphs of the Permits and Fees section.

Handicap parking spaces are located in visitor Lot 2, Lots 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 (gated), 9, 10, 11, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18, and Raider Lot 20; and, near the entrances to all of the resident buildings.

A student who needs to access the handicap spaces in gated Lot 8 must request that the Department of Parking and Transportation activate the Wright 1 Card or request a Handicap RFID Gate Access only permit. (Faculty/staff Wright 1 Cards and RFID permits are automatically activated the next day after the permit is purchased.) A person who is unable to use the Wright 1 Card reader may request a remote gate opener from the Department of Parking and Transportation. A $35 fee will be assessed for unreturned remote gate openers upon leaving Wright State.
