Routine Care & Maintenance

Parking Lot and Garage Maintenance

We're committed to providing a clean and safe place to park on campus. Here's what we're doing to meet that commitment:

  • Daily Garage Cleaning: Our cleaning crews are busy every day mopping, sweeping, dusting, and cleaning garage elevators, elevator lobbies, stairways, and parking areas.
  • Annual Garage Cleaning: We power wash all garages every year. To clean all garages, we start after Commencement in May and finish in early August.
  • Post-Event Cleaning: After major events like football games, we clean all the parking areas with the goal of finishing within 24 hours of the conclusion of the event.
  • Routine Elevator Maintenance: We follow a preventive maintenance program to ensure that garage elevators are safe and all equipment is operational and efficient. All elevator certificates of operation are maintained in the CampusParc offices.
  • Parking Lot Repair and Striping: Each spring, we start repairing any damage in parking areas resulting from severe winter weather conditions. Pothole repair work begins when the weather allows. We also keep an annual striping list that identifies all parking surfaces and/or lines that need to be re-striped during the summer months.

Snow Removal:

Your safety is our top priority, especially during the winter months when weather can adversely impact driving and parking on campus. We partner with the university and the City of Columbus to keep the university accessible and safe. While the university and the City of Columbus are responsible for clearing roads and sidewalks on and around campus, we’re in charge of clearing the parking garages and the surface lots on campus. We work diligently to remove ice and snow as quickly and safely as possible. Please keep in mind that it can take several hours to clear all lots and garages and that this process is heavily dependent on weather conditions (timing of storm, temperature, amount of snow or ice accumulation, and wind speeds). We appreciate your patience during the winter months.
