Parking for People with ADA Compliance Needs:
A valid GVSU permit is required to accompany an ADA compliant
placard or plate. If ADA compliance parking spaces are not available,
the ADA permit holder may park at a meter (payment not required) or in
a Faculty/Staff or Student lot only. Parking in any other space is
prohibited. Parking in ADA compliant spaces in pay stations lots will
require payment and is limited to a two hour stay.
University-Issued ADA Compliance Permits:
Mobility impaired persons shall be issued, without charge, a
temporary permit not to exceed three (3) days by Parking Services.
This permit is not renewable.
To obtain a thirty (30) day permit from Disability Support Resources,
a written statement from a physician must be presented and must
specifically state the need for ADA compliant parking and the time
frame for which it is necessary. This permit is not renewable.
Those individuals needing ADA parking privileges beyond thirty (30)
days must obtain a permit from the Michigan Secretary of State. If
temporary ADA compliant parking accommodations are needed, contact
Disability Resource Services at 616 - 331 - 2490 or Parking
Services at 616 - 331 - 7275.
Illegal Use of an ADA Parking Placard or License
Plate: Under Michigan law, it is illegal to use an
ADA placard or license plate when the ADA permit holder is not being
transported; to lend an ADA placard to another person; and to make a
copy of an ADA placard.
Campus Safety will confiscate any ADA placard found to be in use
illegally and return said placard to the Secretary of State with an
explanation of misuse.
ADA Compliance Parking Fine: $100
