Employee Accessible Parking Permits

The information below applies only to employees seeking temporary accessible parking permission.

If you are a student who needs accessible parking please contact the Student Access Office at 516.877.3545.

If you are an employee seeking permanent accessible parking please contact Adelphi’s Department of Public Safety and Transportation at 516.877.3500.

Due to the limited number of accessible spaces on campus please note the following guidelines for requesting temporary parking accommodations due to accessibility issues.  

Temporary Parking Permits are issued for a maximum of 3 months only. Any employee seeking a temporary pass must have their health care provider (MD, DO, NP or PA) complete the downloadable form and submit it to the Student Health Services Center in person or via confidential fax to 516.877.6008 attention Mary Beth Kinney. The form must include the healthcare provider’s office stamp. All information must be completed (such as medical diagnosis, reason for accessible parking, length of time needed up to 3 months) or the request will be denied. The length of time requested for the permit MUST be written in by the health care provider.

Again, the maximum amount of time given will be 3 months. At the end of 3 months the employee must present a new form with new medical documentation. If they do not, their permit is considered invalid and they are subject to the regulations set forth by Public Safety for parking illegally.  Employees requesting greater than 3 months for temporary parking should consider seeking permanent parking permits through the office of Public Safety and their local county offices.
