Parking

During the prolonged construction at 15th Ave. and High St. the most updated information regarding parking and lane closures can be found here.

There are many options for parking when coming to the Wexner Center.
On-campus parking is available at:

  • Arps Garage to the north of the Wexner Center on High Street is available for visitor parking after 4PM and on weekends.
  • *Ohio Union South Garage, just a little south of the center.The Ohio Union South garage is accessible from High Street and College Road.
  • 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.

These are your closest options to the Wexner Center, Mershon Auditorium, and Weigel Hall.

For additional information please visit the CampusParc website. This will provide you with the most up-to-date parking information for the Ohio State University campus and provide a list of additional parking options.

* Please allow extra time for parking due to construction along High Street at the Union Garage entrance. A left turn into the Union Garage from north-bound High Street could be challenging. We recommend if you are traveling north on High Street to turn left (west) at the 12th Avenue / High Street intersection, then right on College Road entering the Union Garage from the west side. Those traveling south on High Street may want to consider using the ARPS garage (located on 16th Avenue) instead.
