Section Two: Using Disability Services and Accommodations
Parking, Campus Accessibility, and Reporting Barriers
De Anza College is a relatively accessible campus. There are a few classrooms that have alternate wheelchair entrances. The campus map is marked with access features, but should you need assistance, see your DSS counselor. If you encounter a barrier or a temporarily inaccessible route, contact DSS. You may be asked to file a "Barrier Report Form", if necessary, which will help DSS evaluate the problem and develop a solution.
Parking - DMV
Students who have a Department of Motor Vehicle disabled person placard or license plate do not need to purchase a De Anza parking sticker. Parking is permitted in any specially marked disability parking place or in any staff-designated space or lot. Parking is not permitted in walkways, on lawns, or other locations generally considered illegal.
Parking - De Anza Disability Parking Permit
The De Anza disability parking permit allows you to park in the student parking lots or spaces designated for Staff, except Lot A1.
Steps to receive a De Anza College disability permit:
Students are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the campus and locate their classrooms before the quarter begins. If you would like help locating your classrooms or need escort service to a special campus appointment, please contact Mobility Services located in RSS 141 (408-864-8412)
Campus Services Assistance
Students who have challenges that may necessitate assistance in the cafeteria, bookstore or library should inform their DSS counselor or Learning Disabilities Specialist for possible solutions which may include contacting a staff member in that location with an assistance request.
In such cases, a student needs to be aware that during busy periods he or she may have to wait for staff availability or may need to return later. If you will require assistance during a typically busy time, it is advisable to prearrange an appointment with the department. Discuss possible needs in advance with your DSS counselor or Learning Disabilities Specialist. Assistance needs examples:
