License Plate Visibility Policy
Please park with your license plate visible from the drive lane.
When it comes to parking on the Ohio State campus, you've got options. There are two different general types of parking: garages and surface parking lots, and we have two different tools to help you determine which parking option is best for you:
We offer SureParc, an interactive map that allows you to view parking rules by date and time. After filling out the menu in SureParc, you can click on parking areas within the map to learn more about rates, occupancy, and you can even click to get directions to a particular spot. The tool provides personalized information for permit holders, patients and visitors.
As an alternative, you can use our Garage and Surface Lot Finder to learn about some of our most frequently used parking options. With the Garage and Surface Lot Finder, you will be introduced to detailed information about hourly parking rates, as well as peak and off-peak hours and access. You can search by address or nearby attraction to find the distance between where you park and your destination on campus.
