In order to accommodate parking for all of the different groups on campus and off, UM has a color coded system to make finding the appropriate spot easy. By matching the color of the permit with color of the parking space, surface striping, or signs in the parking areas, drivers will ensure adequate parking for all.
Red Zone: Commuter Student
Green Zone: Residence Hall Student
White Zone: Faculty/Staff
Blue Zone: Disability Parking
Yellow Zone: All Permits/Overflow

Accessible (Disability) Parking
All faculty, staff and students must register their vehicle (purchase an individual university hangtag/sticker). Individuals who have a state disability parking placard or license tag should obtain the disability (blue) permit from the DSS office. Student should submit their commuter or resident parking sticker to exchange foe the accessible hangtag. DSS will need to see a copy of the receipt/registration for the state placard/license plate to confirm the individual’s need for the campus blue tag. Disability parking permits are the same cost as all other permits.
Temporary disability parking, due to injury or illness, is also provided through DSS. Individuals should bring a letter from their medical professional indicating diagnosis/reason for the temporary permit and the expected duration of the need. Individuals requesting temporary permits for extended periods of time should obtain the state temporary permit as well.
