**ADA parking is available throughout the university. Duquesne University is a private institution that provides reasonable accommodations for anyone that requires ADA parking on the property. Duquesne University requires either a state issued ADA placard with a university issued temporary permit or an official Duquesne University issued permanent ADA hangtag to park outside of the Forbes and Locust parking garages. Failure to adhere to this policy may result in a parking citation. To park in an ADA space inside the Forbes and Locust garages, an individual must possess a state issued placard. **
