Accessible Parking

NC State permit-holders

The closest car-accessible parking is on Faucette Drive between Jordan and Biltmore. There are also spaces on the east end of Jordan Addition, located near the Morrill Drive intersection. Vehicles parked in these spaces must display both the appropriate NC State permit and a valid state-issued handicapped parking placard or plate.

Visitors

Visitors with a valid state-issued handicapped parking placard or plate may park in the Coliseum Deck, a gated lot that requires a credit card to enter and for payment upon exit. Accessible spaces for cars and vans are located near the exit. From the parking deck visitors can travel around campus for free on any of the Wolfline buses, which have wheelchair lifts and a kneeling capability to assist those with limited mobility.

Visitors needing accessible parking closer to Jordan Hall can inquire about a visitor pass by contacting the Transportation Office.

The front of Jordan Hall is accessible by ramp and has a pushpad power-assisted door.  A ramp also connects the back parking area to the back entrance door, which has a lever handle to enter and a push bar to exit. Both doors open to the central lobby area. The interior doors from the lobby into the library have a lever handle to enter and a push bar to exit. If you are unable to operate these doors you may knock or call (919) 515-2306 for assistance.
