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 Arps 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.

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 (see rates on the Gateway page).

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 the Ohio Union South Garage. 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.
