DMU Assessed Need Permit

Permit holders are permitted to park in any parking bay on campus, including the designated disabled parking bays.

Eligibility

DMU students who meet the following criterion may apply: the person has a medical condition, disability or restricted mobility that means that they are unable to walk more than short distances e.g. 100 metres, and require access to a parking space as near as possible to their workplace or building. Or, there is another medical condition, or reason related to health, why they cannot use public transport, park on public roads and/or walk from other university or private car parks to reach their workplace.

Permit issuance is subject to approval from the Disability Services Team.
