Physical Disability Parking & Medical Permits

Medical Permit

Individuals with a valid UCO permit who are medically impaired may be issued a temporary Medical Permit by TPS that allows for parking in faculty/staff, commuter, and housing lots. Medical Permit holders may also park in Pay-to-Park, and metered lots at no charge. A medical permit must be displayed with a purchased, valid UCO permit.

A physician's statement may be required stating the nature and length of the impairment. Medical permits will be issued for no more than six weeks per academic year. A state issued temporary physical disability placard will be required for impairments longer than six weeks.

Vehicles displaying a temporary medical permit, along with the appropriate UCO permit, are not allowed to park in physical disability spaces. They may park in any other legal parking spaces on campus that are not designated/reserved for other uses.

Physical Disability Placard

Applications for Oklahoma Physical Disability placards are available at the TPS Office.

Authorized users must display both the Physical Disability placard, and a valid UCO permit.

Any vehicles that display a valid, state issued Physical Disability permit must register it with us at our office (NUC 309A). A vehicle with a valid UCO permit and a Physical Disability permit can park in the NUC Pay Lot at no charge and metered parking does not have to be paid.

Vehicles displaying a state issued Physical Disability permit, along with a valid UCO permit, may park in any legal parking space or any physical disability space, with the exception of spaces reserved for other uses, i.e., child services, service/maintenance, delivery vehicles, etc. 

Vehicles that do not display a valid physical disability permit in a designated physical disability space will be fined $100.00 and impounded at owner's expense.
