Metered Parking

Metered parking is available in several locations on campus. No permit is required for metered parking areas. Payment at metered spaces is required during posted hours.

ADA Parking

Spaces reserved for the physically challenged require both an OSU visitor permit and a valid DMV placard. With a valid DMV placard, any meter that has a limit of more than 30 minutes does not require payment. This policy is enforced at all times.

ADA visitors to campus with a valid ADA placard, may obtain a three hour guest permit at no charge at the Information Booth or at the Parking Services office.
