Illinois Tech employees, students, or affiliates that wish to utilize designated handicap parking spaces on campus must display a state-issued handicap placard as well as a paid Illinois Tech issued parking permit.

  • IIT Tower
  • 3424 South State
  • Siegel Hall
  • Perlstein Hall
  • Life Sciences

Individuals seeking access to Blue Permit spaces should send a copy of their state issued handicap placard along with a brief statement expressing the need for accommodation closer than the nearest parking lot to the ACaPS Office as a scanned document to or by fax to 312-567-8979. Please note that issuance of a Blue Permit is subject to approval by the Center for Disability Resources and the ACaPS Office. Further, issuance of a Blue Permit does not guarantee reserved parking for any individual. The Blue Permit grants access to utilize a designated space on a first come-first served basis. Overflow parking is available in the nearest parking lots.

Visitors displaying a state-issued handicap placard may utilize handicap spaces designated in various Visitor Parking areas on campus at no cost. (See Campus Map) Illinois Tech Employees, Students, and Rental Property Tenants with a state issued placard may park in visitor lots to facilitate closer proximity. In this case, a paid Illinois Tech permit is still required.
