Temporary Medical Permit (TM) - A Temporary Medical permit will be issued upon receipt of documentation stating the time period for the exception, not to exceed six months. A Temporary Medical parking permit requires a valid University permit. Temporary Medical permits are valid on a first come first serve basis in any Zone space excluding Reserved or spaces.
If you have special requirements for mobility, you must contact the Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action, and Disability Services Department (EAD). EAD will coordinate with the Office of Traffic & Parking to determine the best solution for your needs. They can be reached at (615) 322–4705.
Motorcycles, Mopeds, Scooters, etc.A Permit is required for ALL vehicles parking on the Vanderbilt University Campus. Motorcycles, motorized bicycles, motor scooters and mopeds are required to display “U” permits. You can purchase a U Permit or the cost is waived if a customer has already purchased an annual vehicle permit at regular price. Motorcycle, motorized bicycle, motor scooter and moped parking areas can be found on the parking map (http://www.vanderbilt.edu/parking and click on Maps) as designated by the motorcycle symbols.. Motorcycle parking is authorized in any “dead space” in a parking lot. Dead space is defined as areas that are not usable by vehicles and does not block walkways, dumpsters, or impede traffic.
Permits for Temporary EmployeesTemporary VU employees (VTS) are issued special one-month, two-month, & three-month permits for a designated zone. Permits must be renewed when expired. The appropriate fee is charged for each issuance/renewal. Refunds are not issued for temporary employees who complete their assignment before the expiration of their parking permit.
VUMC temporary employees should contact VUMC Parking and Transportation for their parking needs.
Parking for Special EventsDuring special events, the University may temporarily restrict or redesignate parking areas or charge a fee for parking in lots normally classified for University permit parking. Lots that must be vacated prior to athletic events are marked with a gold star on the parking map. Other lots may be designated with barricades and posted signs. Parking permits for special events will be issued through the Office of Traffic and Parking. Vehicles parked illegally in posted lots are subject to citation and/or towing or relocation.
Departments may purchase UV permits (University Vendor) for use on vehicles owned by department personnel. For such permits to be valid on vehicles operated by students, faculty members, or staff members, the personal vehicles must be registered with the Office of Traffic and Parking, and must display the decal issued to the registrant. "V" permits may not be purchased in lieu of regular parking permits and are issued only for University owned/leased vehicles.
Service and sales persons operating vehicles on the University campus must obtain appropriate parking permits from the Office of Traffic and Parking. Currently permits are valid in non-reserved zone spaces in Wesley Place Garage, Terrace Place Garage, 25th Avenue Garage, lots 77,72C, 72D, 72E, 75A and at loading docks (while loading and unloading ONLY).
