Accessible Parking

Accessible parking areas are available throughout campus. Students and visitors who require accessible parking are welcome to park on campus with their state issued disability placard. A university parking permit is required to be used in conjunction with the placard. Please contact the Bureau of Motor Vehicles in your state of residence for information about obtaining a disability placard.

Students with a state-issued disability placard may purchase a Miami student parking permit and submit a photo of the disability placard within the Miami Parking Portal. Students who have already been issued a Miami parking permit may email a photo of their disability placard to Upon successful submission, students in possession of a disability placard and Miami parking permit may park in disability/accessible spaces throughout campus or adjacent unreserved spaces should the accessible spaces be full.

Drivers with disability placards must still pay parking meters and garage fees in pay-to-park areas.

ADA Transit Service

Miami University partners with Butler County Regional Transit Authority (BCRTA) to provide accessible bus service to all Miami campuses and the surrounding Butler County, Ohio area. BCRTA also offers ADA Paratransit Services. Students with temporary and/or permanent disabilities requiring accessible door to door transportation are encouraged to request paratransit service.
