Minnesota State Mankato
Temporary Accessibility Parking Permits

  • Go to Campus Hub (Student Union).
  • Provide them with supporting documentation about the disability from a physician.
  • The Campus Hub will issue you a temporary blue paper hanging permit for your rear view mirror. The price is $10 a week for non-MSU regular permit holders.
  • The temporary accessible permit is good for up to two weeks. Those with University temporary permits are encouraged to file for a state accessible permit so they can park close-in to retail establishments off-campus. With the University temporary accessible permit you can park in University accessible stalls, Gold stalls, Purple permit stalls, Green permit stalls, or meter stalls.


Accessible parking is not a special privilege, but a necessity. The spaces are needed to give people with mobility limitations the same opportunities to use public or private facilities as people who do not have disabilities.

Because some people cannot walk, or because a visible or hidden impairment makes walking difficult or hazardous, people with disabilities are at a disadvantage. This is particularly true in winter if disability parking is not provided or is left obstructed.

Accessible parking spaces also provide extra space for people in wheelchairs when getting in and out of a vehicle.
