Disability Application Process at UNC

The application for disability parking and transit services aids in providing reasonable accommodations for those with disabilities. Applications for disability parking and transportation are available at the Public Safety Building on Manning Drive. Disability application can also be faxed or mailed by calling The Department of Public Safety at (919)-962-3951.  Please state that you are requesting a disability application and leave your name, voice and fax number, and address in the message.  The application can be downloaded in Acrobat Reader.  Acrobat Reader Disability Application

Applicants who need to park a vehicle on campus will be authorized parking privileges based on justification in the application completed and signed by a licensed physician (a physician unrelated to the applicant). The application will be reviewed at a monthly meeting of the University Disability Advisory Committee (representatives from Employee and Student Disability Services, Student Health Services, and Parking Services). The applicant should also complete the Authorization for Release of Confidential Information form. Signing this form gives permission to a DPS designee to request additional information from the physician noted on your application if needed. Upon receipt of the application, the applicant may be issued a temporary permit valid until the board reviews the application. The application should be returned to the University / Healthcare System parking office by the week before the next meeting of the review board.

Please note the following information:

Reasonable accommodations will include the use of campus disability spaces, campus transportation (Point-to-Point, the University Shuttle, and UNC Hospital’s shuttle buses), and available public transportation (Chapel Hill Transit and Triangle Transit Association); additional time may be required to get to work or school.

Mobility limitations cited on the physician's orders cannot exceed those noted as limitations affecting daily activity or job functions. The limitations cannot exceed those on file in the appropriate University/Healthcare System disability services office. Temporary disabilities (less than six months in duration) will be reviewed and considered on a space availability basis. Persons with permanent disabilities must be registered with the appropriate University/Healthcare System office:
