On-campus parking is available at the Ohio Union South Garage, just a little south of the center, which is reserved for visitors' use until 4 PM on weekdays. After 4 PM on weekdays and on weekends, visitor parking is available in that garage, as well as at the nearby Ohio Union North Garage. We recommend parking in Ohio Union South Garage, as it is better equipped to handle visitor traffic and should get you in and out more quickly. These are your closest options to the Wexner Center, Mershon Auditorium, and Weigel Hall. Click here for rates and more info. Please note: Off-peak rates in these garages begin at 6 PM on weekdays, so entering the garage after 6 PM (when possible) will be a better value.
When larger events are taking place at the Wex or at a neighboring venue, special event parking may be set up in one of these garages. During these times, drivers will need to pay $5 (cash only) to enter the garage, and will not be charged upon exit (provided you leave by 6 AM the following day). Please hold on to your garage ticket, as it may be needed to exit the garage.
Convenient parking for the Wexner Center is also available at the South Campus Gateway garage, located one block east of North High Street between 9th and 11th avenues. Parking at Gateway costs $1 per hour.
All parking areas on campus are subject to football game day parking policies on home football Saturdays. Please expect increased traffic and a higher demand for parking in the campus area on those days.
Wheelchair-accessible parking is available in both Ohio Union Garages. There are also a very limited number of spaces in front of Mershon Auditorium; please note that some of these are reserved for Ohio State permit holders.
A very limited amount of short-term metered parking is also available in front of Mershon Auditorium.
Riding a bike? Bicycle racks are located across the walkway from our College Road entrance.
Please note that the intersection of College Road and 18th Avenue will be closed from mid-May through mid-July. During this time, a detour will be available, and Arps garage will only be accessible from High Street. Please visit Ohio State's Facilities Operations and Development for more information on campus construction projects.
