Accessible Parking & Transportation

In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), we provide accessible parking and transportation options. The following maps contain details about campus accessibility:

Duke Transit & Vans

Our buses and vans accommodate wheelchairs.

Paratransit Services

If you're a student and need transportation between your residence hall and classroom or academic activities, you can apply for Duke paratransit services. Upon approval, you'll receive details on how to schedule weekday rides and request evening/weekend van service. 

For local and regional paratransit service, use GoDurham Access or GoTriangle T-Linx.

Accessible Parking

We work with Duke's Disability Management System to provide appropriate parking for disabled visitors, students, and employees.

Visitors

Handicapped accessible parking spaces are available throughout campus. If you are planning a visit to Duke and need accommodation assistance, contact Duke's Disability Management System at dukedms@duke.edu.

Important! If you park in a handicapped space, you must display a state-issued handicapped parking placard. 

  • Metered spaces and garages - Hourly charges apply.
  • Gated and ungated lots - You may purchase a day pass for a limited selection of lots online with a credit card. To purchase, click Sign Up to create a guest account.
Students

If you have a temporary or permanent disability, do the following. If you do not already own a permit, a permit fee may apply.

If you're a student with a permanent disability, our office will provide a temporary (2 week) parking arrangement until Disability Management advises us of your needs, if any.

If you're a student with a temporary disability lasting less than three months, provide a note from a health care provider on letterhead, explaining the nature of and duration of your disability. We will provide you with access to parking for up to three (3) months.

Employees 

If you're an employee with a permanent or temporary disability, do the following:

  • Visit Disability Management System and complete their online form. Disability Management will consult with Employee Occupational Health and Wellness (EOHW). A staff member from EOHW will be in touch with you.
  • In the interim, contact our office for a temporary (2 week) parking arrangement. We may require a note from a health care provider on letterhead, explaining the nature of and duration of your disability.
  • Once you hear from EOHW, contact us for longer-term parking. If you do not already own a permit, a permit fee may apply.
