Two Garage Rooftops Closing for Safety Enhancements

Sep 19, 2018

Rooftop access will be closed in the Ohio Union South Garage and Lane Avenue Garage beginning the morning of Wednesday, September 19.

In accordance with the recently released Suicide and Mental Health Task Force report, Ohio State and CampusParc will continue environmental design review of university parking garages and make adjustments accordingly. The safety of our campus community is our top priority.

Should you or someone you know be at risk of harming yourself or others, please call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest emergency room. Additional resources offered through Ohio State and elsewhere are available here and here.

For those faculty, staff and students who park in or near these garages and may be considering alternate parking arrangements, please know that we anticipate user demands will continue to be met in Ohio Union South and Lane Avenue garages. A timeline is to be determined.
