ADA Accessible parking applications will be considered separately. There is an ADA Accessible checkbox on the Parking Application form.

All requests for ADA Accessible parking accompanied with an official state issued Persons With Disabilities placard will bypass the waiting list and is eligible for an immediate parking assignment. The rate structure is the same for ADA Accessible parking as Non-ADA Accessible parking.

There's also free parking at the Ray Winder Field and War Memorial Stadium. All UAMS Shuttle buses are wheelchair accessible.

Currently, when the shuttle is not running, after hours parking is provided for free in parking Lots 1 and 1A. Employees and students with disabilities with an after hours parking decal may also park on the top level of Parking 2 deck upon request. For specific needs please contact the Parking Operations office.

Employee & Student Motorcycle Parking Information

  • Employees and students approved for motorcycle parking should register their motorcycle with Parking Operations. We ask that the UAMS parking decal be properly displayed to avoid receiving a parking citation.

UAMS Smoking Policy

UAMS police will issue citations to any employees caught smoking on the UAMS campus, including those found smoking in parked vehicles. Patients and visitors caught smoking will be warned that it is illegal to smoke on the UAMS campus.

UAMS police also will send the names of employees violating the smoking policy to the Office of Human Resources for disciplinary action.

UAMS has been a smoke-free campus since 2004. Under the Arkansas Clean Indoor Air Act of 2006, it is illegal to smoke inside state buildings and most public places, including hospitals. The Arkansas Clean Air on Campus Act of 2009 made it illegal to smoke on the campuses of state-supported institutions of higher education, including UAMS. Violators of that law are subject to ticketing and fines between $100 and $500.

Until now, UAMS officers have issued verbal warning to employees and patients caught smoking on campus. However, amid reports of more smoking violations on campus, UAMS police will now begin issuing tickets to those employees who are caught smoking on campus. (See campus map)

UAMS police will send those tickets to the Little Rock District Court's Environmental Division, where a judge will set the fine amount. The fines will be paid to the City of Little Rock; UAMS will not receive any money from enforcing this state law.
