Permit Waitlists

Waitlists are created for certain garage permits in high-demand areas. Because of the high demand, the number of available permits is limited. Eligible faculty, staff, and students may join a waitlist for the permit they would like to purchase via their parking account.

To join a waitlist, click on Login in the upper right corner of the Web page, log in to your account, and select Add/Edit Waitlists.

Student Garage Permits

In addition to surface lot permits, students may purchase a garage access permit providing garage access to different areas of campus. There are two types of student garage permits:

CG - Central Campus Surface Parking with Garage Access

CP - Central Campus Surface Parking with Overnight Garage Storage

Both permits provide access to either a single garage or group of garages, depending on the type of permit purchased.

Garage permit allocations are established each year depending upon available garage spaces. Customers who would like to purchase a CG or CP permit may do so during the annual permit renewal period. Permits are awarded based on student rank.

Below are the garage groupings for the different student garage permits.

  • CG1 - Peak period access to Tuttle Park Place Garage
  • CG2 - Peak period access to 9th Avenue East and West Garages
  • CG3 - Peak period access to Ohio Union North and 11th Avenue Garages
  • CG4 - Peak period access to Lane and West Lane Avenue Garages
  • CPN1: Access at all times to Lane Avenue Garage (not available to first-year students).
  • CPN2: Access at all times to West Lane Avenue Garage (not available to first-year students).
  • CPN3: Access at all times to North Riverbank Lot (no garage access, not available to first-year students)
  • CPS: Access at all times to 11th Avenue Garage

Staff Garage Permits

In addition to surface lot permits, staff may purchase a BG permit, allowing limited garage access on different areas of campus.

BG permit allocations are established each year depending upon available garage spaces. Staff who would like to purchase a BG permit may do so during the annual permit renewal period.

BG permits are issued on a first-come, first-served basis.  Once the allocation limit has been reached, customers may join the appropriate BG waitlist. Customers on a waitlist are notified during the year if a BG permit becomes available. Customers may be added to the waitlist at any point during the year.

Below are the garage groupings for the different BG permits.

  • BG1 - Access at all times to Tuttle Park Place and Northwest Garages
  • BG2 - Access at all times to 9th Avenue East and West Garages
  • BG3 - Access at all times to Ohio Union North and 11th Avenue Garages
  • BG4 - Access at all times to Arps, Lane, and West Lane Avenue Garages

Access to additional garages is provided during off-peak periods. Permit-specific access information can be downloaded here.
