ADA Accessible parking is available throughout campus in visitor lots, meters and pay stations and in permit-controlled parking lots.

Blue/white pavement striping, blue and white signs, and the universal access symbol identify these spaces. A state-issued accessible license plate, permit, decal or placard must be displayed at all times in vehicles parked in ADA accessible spaces. In permit-controlled lots, a UCB campus virtual permit must accompany the state-issued placard or license.

If you are physically unable to attend class or a meeting (due to injury or illness), review options available for attending remotely.
