If spaces are not available and you would like to place your name on the list, please call 702-895-1300. A Parking & Transportation Services representative will contact you when a space is available. At that time, you will have the option to purchase the space or opt out.

Reserved permits are valid in the assigned numbered reserved space and all student spaces. Reserved parking is enforced 24 hours a day. There are three lots with reserved spaces:

Handicapped/American Disabilities Act (ADA) Accommodations

Handicapped parking permits are available for purchase by those with a valid state-issued handicapped license plate or tag. All individuals with a state-issued handicapped parking placard must display the placard, as well as purchase a UNLV handicap parking permit.

To purchase handicapped permits, the driver must:

  • Present their current placard along with the letter received at the time of issuance.
  • Provide one form of photo identification.

The registered owner of the handicapped plate or tag must be in the vehicle when it is being parked. If your vehicle does not have a handicapped license plate, the portable handicapped tag issued by the state must be displayed on the rearview mirror or face-up on the vehicle dashboard.
