ADA Accessible Permits
Individuals with reduced mobility are eligible to purchase an ADA Accessible parking permit. All faculty, staff, and students who wish to utilize accessible parking spaces are required to purchase a CampusParc ADA Accessible permit rather than using the state placard and a standard permit; this identifies where accessible parking spaces are needed, regulates the use of such spaces to ensure they are available for those who need them, and discourages abuse. Those with permanent disabilities must submit their state-issued disability placard registration to CampusParc in order to purchase or exchange to an annual ADA accessible permit.
Individuals requiring an accessible parking permit for 30 days or less may have a doctor fill out the CampusParc Temporary Accessible Parking Request Form or provide their state-issued temporary disability placard registration and provide it to CampusParc. Unfortunately, prescription notes cannot be used as documentation for a temporary disability.
Visitor ADA Accessible Parking
Visitors and guests to The Ohio State University are required to purchase parking any time they park on campus. All parking on campus is allocated and signed for specific uses, and parking regulations are enforced 24/7. ADA Accessible spaces are available in all garages and most surface lots across campus. Paid hourly parking and the display of a state-issued disability placard are required to use an accessible space. For more information, see CampusParc Visitor Parking.
Accessible Parking and Shuttle at Ohio State Stadium
ADA Accessible parking will be located in the lots north of St. John Arena and in the Lane Avenue Garage. These areas will both be accessible, while space is available, from Lane Ave. A current state issued disability placard (from any state), along with registration, and the person who owns the placard must be in the vehicle to enter the parking area. (Officers may validate ownership of the placard at any time.) A shuttle will transport guests from the parking lots north of St. John Arena to the east side of Ohio Stadium near Gate 22. This shuttle will operate from six hours prior to kickoff until one hour after the game/concert.
A shuttle service is available to transport guests from the parking lots north of St. John Arena to the east side of Ohio Stadium near Gate 22. This shuttle will operate from six hours prior to the event start time and until one hour after the game/concert.
Guests parked in the Accessible Parking lots are permitted to setup tailgates. Trailers, storage units, and tailgating activities may not take up vacant parking spaces, vehicle unloading spaces, crosswalks, or interfere with traffic flow within a parking lot. Drive lanes in parking lots must be maintained at all times. Parking permit holders are responsible for the functions they host in their parking spaces. Vehicle and tailgate must fit within the 8.5′ x 15′ space provided.
