CampusParc is responsible for the operation of The Ohio State University’s parking system, including management of the permit system, parking enforcement, customer service, motorist assistance, event parking management, and parking facility maintenance, including major renovations. The parking system, one of the largest of its kind, is comprised of 5 million square feet and 13,000 spaces within 16 garages, and 7 million square feet and 23,591 spaces within 196 surface lots, for a total of 36,591 system spaces.
CampusParc operates the parking system through a 50-year lease, known as a parking concession, which began in September 2012. As a result of the concession, the university received a one-time, up-front payment of $483 million that is expected to provide $3.1 billion in investment earnings for academic initiatives. In the first 24 months of the concession, the initial $483 million created $112 million in interest, funding teaching, learning, research, transportation, and sustainability.
