Accessibility

Towson University promotes the full inclusion of individuals with disabilities as part of our commitment to creating a diverse, multicultural campus community.

 

  • We are in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as well as other applicable federal and state laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability. 
  • The university will provide reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals upon request.
  • Listed to the right are links to general accessibility information, as well as information of interest to students, faculty, staff and campus visitors.

Accessible Parking

  • Those wishing to use the designated Accessible parking spaces are required to have both a state issued Accessible permit/license plate assigned to them and a valid university parking permit.

  • A valid permit is purchased at Parking & Transportation Services through eParking or at one of the yellow visitor paystations located throughout the campus.

  • Only the individual to whom the Accessibility permit/plate is issued to may use an Accessible  parking space.

  • If you are transporting an individual who is authorized to use an Accessible permit/plate, the individual must be in the vehicle at the time it is parked.  If the person is dropped off at another location, you may not park in an Accessible space.

  • Proof of Accessible Parking Certification must be presented to law enforcement or University officials upon request.

  • Accessible Parking Spaces (PDF) are located in all garages and lots on campus.

  • Accessible permits/license plates do not allow for free parking on the Towson University campus.

  • Accessible Parking Regulations (PDF) are strictly enforced 24/7.  Vehicles parked illegally in Accessible spaces are subject to citation and towing at the owner's expense.

  • Certified Accessible Permit Holders may park at a stand-alone meter up to two time frames without additional cost if all Accessible spaces are filled.

  • Register Your Accessible Placard/License Plate:  Students, faculty and staff members are strongly encouraged to register their Accessible permits/license plates with Parking & Transportation Services.  This informs university staff that the vehicle is registered to a driver who possesses the valid credentials to park in Accessible restricted parking spaces.  Registration of Accessible status with Towson University can help avoid inaccurate vehicle citations.  Accessible Placard/Registration Form (PDF)
