Temporary Parking Permits
To assist the infrequent driver, daily permits for $7 or $1.00 an hour up to four hours and weekly permits for $34 are available. There are also 10 'Pay & Display' stations located throughout campus which accept coin and currency in $1 and $5 bills. The 'Pay & Display' station locations are shown on the OSU campus map located on the map section of the Transit & Parking Services website.
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.
Spaces reserved for the physically challenged require both an OSU visitor permit or Proud Parent Card 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.
Special permits are available for more frequent visitors. Please go to Transit & Parking Services Office for assistance.
