permanent or temporary disability
hangtags, parking cards or plates are also

spaces only when individuals with a disability are the driver or rider in the

with disabilities will be expected to park in Lot B. Rendleman Hall employees
with disabilities may park in handicap spaces in Lot C. If the
spaces for individuals with a disability are filled, Rendleman Hall employees are also expected to park in Lot B. Handicap permits,
placards and plates are not honored at meters in Lot C.
For short-term problems,
disability permits may be issued by the University. The purchase of a current SIU Edwardsville permit
is also required. A University temporary disability permit does not authorize an
individual to park in a space for individuals with a disability. Rather, Health
Service and Parking Services work together to provide these individuals with
closer, more convenient parking than they would normally have.
If the individual has no physician's statement, he or she must first go to
Health Services, then to Parking Services. If the student has a
physician's statement, he or she may go directly to Parking Services.
Individuals are permitted to park
in non-wheelchair designated and non-metered spaces, (except those for
University vehicles) in lot of choice, except Lot C (metered lot behind Rendleman Hall), at no additional charge. Rendleman and Morris University
Center employees or students may park in Lot B (Morris University Center
attended lot) without paying lot charges. Those who elect to park in Lot C are
assessed a fee, unless Health Service identifies them as needing extremely
close parking because of mobility problems. This fee is currently $50 per
month or $150 for 90 days.
If a student needs a replacement
permit, he or she may complete a form in Parking Services
stating that the permit has been lost. If the permit was stolen, a
police report must be filed with University Police.
Anything less, the individual
would pay full price for a replacement. Only one replacement permit will be issued
per year for $20. Additional permits will be at full permit value.
In the case of motorcycle decals, scrapings of
the entire original decal, including the decal number must be presented to
Parking Services for a replacement decal to be issued for $20.00.
If an individual forgets or misplaces
his or her permit, a temporary permit may be obtained from Parking Services.
The rate is $2 per day. Until a temporary permit can be
obtained, the motorist may pay to park at a meter or in the attended lot (Lot
There is a limit of seven (7) temporary
permits per individual per academic year. A temporary permit authorizes parking in a lot
corresponding to the permit originally purchased.

Higher Education Campus and the School of Dental Medicine are issued through the
Vice Chancellor for Administration
office or the Business Affairs

issued to an individual.
Motorcycles must also be
registered through Parking Services. Decals must be clearly and permanently
displayed. If a cover is used, the decal must still be visible.
Designated motorcycle parking is located in
most lots. Each
motorcycle must be parked in a lot which corresponds to the color of the
decal. Properly registered motorcycles and mopeds may
also be parked in automobile spaces on the Alton and East St. Louis campuses.
If an individual has purchased a parking permit for a vehicle, he or she may
register a motorcycle at the reduced rate of $20.00.
