As you are likely aware, an Ohio State home football game is scheduled for Saturday. On game days, the university reserves West Lane Avenue Garage for game day use only. As such, the garage must be cleared of all vehicles.

A complete timeline for this weekend is as follows:

Relocate your vehicle from West Lane Avenue Garage.

Starting at 12 a.m. Saturday

Day-of-game parking lots and garages are temporarily available at no additional charge.

Starting approximately six hours after the game starts

You may move your vehicle back to the garage.

Day-of-game parking is no longer available. Hourly fees become due where permits are not valid.
