  • Vehicle color
  • License plate number and state
  • Insurance provider name
  • Vehicle owner information (name, street address, and phone number)

University affiliated individuals (Students, Faculty, Staff…etc) are NOT eligible for visitor permit and will be subject to citation/ revocation if purchased

Visitor Permits expire at 12-midnight and are NOT valid or intended for overnight parking

Accessible Parking

There are approximately 80 accessible parking spaces located on campus. Any vehicle displaying a valid disability placard or license plate may park in marked handicapped spaces regardless of the permitted lot type. However, disability placards may not be used in lieu of a valid UNC-Asheville permit in non-accessible spaces (except in circumstances where no accessible spaces are available).

During large campus events, extra spaces are often reserved for guests with mobility issues. Please inform any event officers or staff directing parking if you require special accommodations to be directed to the nearest reserved parking area.
