The 2022-23 permit year is underway

Aug 1, 2022

The 2022-23 permit year began Monday, Aug. 1.

If you plan to park on campus, please order a 2022-23 annual, monthly, or daily permit online by clicking "Login" at the top right-hand corner of this page, then clicking "Compare Permits/Buy a Permit." Hourly parking options are also available via the ParkMobile app. 

All 2021-22 permits expired after July 31 and do not auto-renew. 

Keep your keycard

Access keycards valid as early as Aug. 1, 2019, automatically carry over into the 2022-23 permit year for active permit holders. If you held a 2021-22 or older permit, no need to wait for a new keycard in the mail. If you ordered a 2022-23 permit, simply continue using your existing keycard.

If you do not have a 2021-22 or older permit but are ordering a 2022-23 annual permit, you will receive a keycard by mail.

If you forget your keycard for garage or event parking, we’ve got you covered! Your keycard’s QR code will be available 24/7 via your online profile.

License plate policy

Effective July 1, 2020, Ohio law no longer requires display of a front license plate. As license plates serve as parking permits on Ohio State’s campus, and so we can ensure the parking you paid for is used only by other customers who have a valid permit or hourly parking, CampusParc requires that all vehicles park on campus with their license plate visible from the drive aisle adjacent to the vehicle.

Parking for annual and monthly permit holders continues to be monitored solely via license plate readers. To park a vehicle on campus and avoid a possible citation, your license plate must be linked to your permit. We do not check for any other type of displayed "permit" during normal operations. To manage your license plates, log in to your account, then click "Manage License Plates."
