While parked on campus, student, faculty and staff vehicles must display a current UWG Disabled Parking Permit, as well as any State-issued Disabled Permit, or State-issued Disabled license plate, in addition to their faculty/staff/student hangtag/decal.
G. Temporary Parking Permits
If a vehicle that is normally driven to campus is unavailable, the hangtag/decal should be removed and properly displayed in the temporary or rented vehicle.
