Temporary Handicapped Parking Needs. The Office of Transportation Services will strive to help students, faculty and staff with temporary mobility issues. If you require a handicapped parking space, you MUST first have the handicapped license plate and placard/hang tag from the State of Louisiana. We cannot issue temporary permits to park in handicapped parking spaces.

We are, at this time, unable to provide parking for any temporary medical issues. We will not accept doctor's notes or anything other than the appropriate credentials from the State of Louisiana OR the state in which you reside. If you have questions, please contact us at 482-6858.
