UREC Handicap Accessibility

Handicap Parking: Due to campus construction causing temporary closure on Driver Drive expected through Summer 2019, the following changes have been made to accessing UREC for the project's duration:

  • The pathway in front of UREC is a route for pedestrians.
  • The pathway behind UREC is a route for vehicles, deliveries, and handicap parking.
  • A gate has been installed in order to reduce vehicular traffic in efforts to keep pedestrians safe, but the gate will not limit access to Handicap Parking and the Adventure Center Rentals Pick-Up/Drop-Off Vestibule.The number of available spots and routes from the handicap spots to the building will be unaffected.
  • Any member of the university community who possesses a current, valid handicap permit is eligible to obtain a gate permit. For more information on obtaining a gate pass, please contact JMU Parking.
  • The drop-off and pick-up location for UREC Youth Programs (Camp UREC, Adventure Camps, and Kids' Night Out) will take place outside exterior Door N (see aerial map).
