In order to maintain accessible, appropriate and adequate parking for those with a state issued disability placard or disability plate, registration is required with Parking Services. This can be done in the office or online.
To register your permit, we need copies of the following:
- The Certificate of Registration. This can be one of two things: If you have a disability placard that hangs from your rearview mirror, this is the registration that comes with the placard. If you have a disability license plate, it would be the vehicle’s registration.
- A color copy of your placard.
- A color copy of both your state ID and BGSU ID (if you have one).
Once we receive everything we need, we will affiliate the permit to the vehicle you listed on your authorization form. Once that is done, you are allowed to park in any available disability parking space on campus.
Please note: In order to park in any on campus lot, a parking permit is required along with your disability placard.
