Public Parking

Day-of-game parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis for $15 per vehicle. Any current annual CampusParc parking permit will be honored in day-of-game lots at no charge, except for the RV lots. Temporary permits and ValueCards are not valid for football parking.

Free continuous shuttle service is provided to the stadium area from the Remote West Campus parking lots beginning six hours prior to kickoff and continuing one hour after the game. The shuttle picks up and drops off passengers at Mount Hall on West Campus and the Sisson Hall footbridge located west of Drake Union and Ohio Stadium. 

Parking lots fill early on game days, and visitors should plan to arrive 90 minutes to 2 hours prior to kickoff. Lengthy delays are possible because of traffic pattern changes to accommodate the large crowds.

Please note: Parking areas reserved for Athletic Permit parking are clearly marked as tow-away zones. All vehicles must be removed from these parking areas by 5:00 a.m. on Saturday. Any vehicles not removed by this time will be towed to the football parking tow lot located at the Southeast corner of Kenny Road and Woody Hayes Drive at the owner’s expense.

RV Parking

Fans driving recreational vehicles, campers, and vans must pre-purchase RV parking permits. A limited number of these permits is available online through The Ohio State University Athletic Department.  

RV parking lots open at 5:00 a.m. on the day of each home game. Spaces are pre-assigned and are held for the permit holder until 90 minutes prior to kickoff.  Additional RV parking is available at the Ohio State Fairgrounds and is available on a first-come, first-served basis for RV permit holders arriving before 5:00 a.m. and for RVs without an Athletics parking permit.

Disability Parking

Disability parking is located off Lane Avenue in the North St. John Arena lot and in the Lane Avenue Parking Garage. Lift-equipped shuttles provide continuous service to and from Gate 22 at the east side of the stadium.

All spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors must display a valid disability permit (either from CampusParc or the state), and the registered owner of the permit must be present. The $15 parking fee applies to all vehicles without a CampusParc parking permit. 

Prohibited Items

Please note that no grills or generators are permitted in CampusParc Parking Garages. Charcoal and wood grills are not permitted in any parking area.
