Disabled Parking

Please be advised, the University has been found to be out of compliance by the CA Department of Motor Vehicles in our current practice of issuing temporary disabled parking.  Therefore, as of July 1, 2013, only vehicles with DMV placards (permanent and temporary) will be authorized to park in SJSU disabled parking stalls.  Parking Services and EARC is recommending employees obtain a DMV permit if you continue to need parking accommodation. DMV permit and application informationcan be found at the following link:  http://www.dmv.ca.gov/vr/disabled.htm.  Should you have any questions, please contact Parking Services at 408-924-6556 or parking@sjsu.edu. The following information applies to disabled parking policies/procedures prior to July 1, 2013.

Accessible parking spaces are provided throughout the San José State University (SJSU) campus. Employees who wish to park in a marked disabled parking space on campus must have one of the following:

  • A Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) issued disabled parking placard (blue or red)

  • DMV issued disabled parking license plates

Note:  In conjunction with a DMV license plate/parking placard or EARC issued disabled parking permit, SJSU parking permits are required at all times. 

For more information regarding SJSU parking please refer to the SJSU Traffic and Parking website.

Parking Lot Key Cards

A key card is necessary to gain access to Lot #1 located at 7th & San Fernando. To apply for a key card, employees must submit an application to SJSU Traffic and Parking located in the 7th Street Garage. If the electronic gate malfunctions, you may contact the EARC by dialing 111 during business hours on the Lot#1 gate control key pad or use the gate control directory to contact the University Police Department (UPD) to gain access.
