Parking is allowed in any white-lined space campus-wide (including visitor spaces), any state marked handicapped space, and time-limited spaces. Do not park in reserved, loading docks, fire lanes, etc.

Only vehicles with federal or state handicap license plates or placards (hang tags) may park in designated handicap spaces. TCU Police reserves the right to inquire as to the rightful owner of disabled placards or license plates and to request proof of ownership if deemed necessary. A special TCU handicap permit (DP) is available to students, faculty, and staff who have handicap plates or placards. A copy of the placard/ license plate number and driver license must be on file. Students, faculty, and staff with a federal or state temporary handicap placard (placards issued for up to 6 months and with most states red in color) will be issued a standard permit based on their housing or their employee parking assignment. 

Important notice to DV plate holders:

SB 792 – Disabled Veteran Plates and Parking Privileges

As of January 1, 2022, anyone parking in a disabled parking space must have a disabled person license plate or a disabled parking placard that features the International Symbol of Access (ISA). Currently, disabled veteran license plates do not feature the ISA.

Texans with disabled veteran license plates wishing to use disabled parking spaces in 2022 may apply for a disabled parking placard or for a new disabled veteran license plate featuring the ISA. The veteran must meet the eligibility requirements for a disabled parking placard or disabled person license plate featuring the ISA. Not all disabilities that qualify a veteran for disabled veteran license plates will qualify a veteran for a disabled veteran license plate featuring the ISA.

Medical School Permit Parking Map

**Please be aware Commuter, Faculty Staff, and Medical School Permits share the same rules and regulations on the TCU main campus**

Bicycle permits are required.  Bicycles should ONLY be secured at bicycle racks.  Bicycles secured to fences, railings, landscape or anything other than a bicycle rack may be confiscated.  Bicycle permits do not expire and there is no cost for the permit.

Students operating non-motorized or electric scooters, skateboards, or other similar devices are required to register for a permit and exercise extreme caution, being mindful of the pedestrian and vehicle traffic on campus. These devices are to be treated with the same rules as a bicycle. They are not allowed to be left unattended or stored in areas, such as hallways outside of classrooms or dorm rooms, walkways intended for pedestrian traffic, or other common areas of campus buildings. Devices found in these areas may be confiscated and brought to the TCU Police Department.

We recommend securing these devices when possible to a bicycle rack utilizing a secure “U-lock” style lock with a solid shackle.
