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.
Minnesota State Mankato Temporary Accessibility Parking Permits

- 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-University parking permit holders.
- The temporary accessible permit is good for up to two weeks.
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.
