In the past, Worcester State University faculty, staff and students who experience temporary disabilities were granted use of medical parking spaces through the Health Service Office. In those cases, individuals who did not have a handicap placard (HP) were issued a pass to use medical parking spaces for one semester.
Worcester State currently has more than the required number of handicap parking spaces on campus. Moving forward, the university will discontinue designated medical parking and will designate two or three spaces for medical staff parking for Health Service Office employees.
Students who have a temporary disability are encouraged to register with the Disability Services Office, who will issue accommodations based on the nature of their disability, their functional limitations and documentation.
Employees are encouraged to contact Calvin Hill in the Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Equal Opportunity to discuss their accommodations. Students, faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to apply for HP placards if their disability is such that they require special parking on a long term basis.
