Disability Parking

Disability parking spaces, marked in blue, are located throughout the campus. These spaces are reserved for vehicles displaying any state-issued disability placards or license plates or Stanford ADA placards issued by the Diversity & Access Office; all others will be cited.
Vehicles with disability placards or plates may also park in any other marked spaces on campus, including permit, metered, and time-limit areas.

Please note: The temporary permits issued by the Diversity & Access Office will only be valid in specially designated lots for the Baccalaureate celebration and the main Commencement ceremony.

If you already have a state-issued disability placard or license plate, you do NOT need the Stanford temporary permit.

Electric Golf Carts & Wheelchairs

The use of golf carts on campus is highly restricted and not encouraged during this weekend. Only authorized Stanford golf carts are allowed to operate on campus for liability reasons. For limited golf cart service provided at certain events, please contact the Diversity & Access Office. 

Please Note: The Diversity & Access Office does not have wheelchairs to rent or loan.
