Spaces for individuals with disabilities are provided at various locations across campus. State issued Disability placards must be accompanied by a MSU issued disability permit or visitor permit. The disability permit is also valid in all color zones. It is a violation of Kentucky law to use or display a handicapped parking placard or license plate issued to someone else.  Violation of these laws may result in a citation to appear in Calloway County District Court and fines. Unauthorized vehicles may be ticketed and/or towed.
