K-State Parking Services maintains over 300 conveniently located, accessible parking stalls, near all campus buildings and residence halls.
Students may pick up the official campus parking map from Parking Services. Much of the accessible parking is identified under "notes" on the right corner of the map. Parking on campus can be difficult, and so it is a good idea to "scout" good parking areas in advance and be aware that time of day and year can have a great impact on parking availability.
Students who qualify for accessible parking also qualify for DSS Shuttle Service. Shuttle request forms are available in the DSS office.
Accessible Parking on Campus
Students wishing to use accessible parking on campus must have (1) a clearly displayed, valid disability placard or license plate and (2) a clearly displayed, valid K-State Parking Permit.
Holders of K-State and State of Kansas permits for accessible parking may park in metered stalls at no charge, in timed, loading zones, and service stalls for as long as necessary at any time designated accessible parking is not available.
Visitors wishing to use accessible parking on campus must have (1) a clearly displayed, valid disability placard or license plate and (2) a clearly displayed, valid visitor's pass. Visitor's passes are available from Parking Services in the Parking Garage at the corner of Anderson Avenue and 17th.
Parking is not permitted in fire lanes, reserved stalls, yellow crosshatched areas or in a manner that impedes traffic. Under no circumstance should any person park a vehicle on sidewalks, grass, along the road, etc.
Where can I go to get a disabled parking placard?
Download an application for accessible parking or pick up a paper copy from the courthouse nearest you. It must be completed and signed by your physician, either for temporary injuries or permanent disabilities. In Manhattan, applications may be picked up at the Treasurer's Office in the Riley County Courthouse (5th and Humboldt), 110 Courthouse Plaza, first floor, or call (785) 537-6320.
- Parking anywhere other than an official stall (such as the grass, sidewalk, etc.): $50-$100 and/or towing, depending on location and impact.
- Illegally parking in an accessible stall: $175 per violation.
- Using another individual's placard, forged or altered placard: $200 and the loss of parking privileges on campus for a year.
