NC State permit-holders

The closest car-accessible parking is on Faucette Drive in the Biltmore South Lot between Jordan and Biltmore Halls, where there are two spaces. There are also three spaces at 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.
