Departmental Permits

Personal Vehicles for Departmental Business

University policy prohibits a department from paying for an OSU employee’s annual parking permit. However, departments can provide one of the following parking permits to grant employees access to special parking areas.

  • Departmental A Permit – Provides full access to all staff garages and any A, B, or C nonrestricted surface parking space on Central or Remote West Campus
  • Departmental B Permit – Provides access only to any B or C nonrestricted surface parking space on Central or Remote West Campus

Service Vehicle Permits

The SV keycard provides access to area garages for vehicles with state plates. These vehicles also are allowed to park in any legal A, B, or C surface parking space or in general state vehicle parking spaces.

Reserved Parking Spaces

Departments requiring reserved spaces can receive permits for departmental use, state vehicles, and outside guests and visitors. OSU employees using these permits must also possess their own annual parking permit.

Parking for Large Events

If your department is planning an event with at least 30 guests, we recommend you notify us to ensure that we provide adequate arrangements.

Prepaid Parking Options

Departments can prepay for parking for their guests by submitting an eRequest.
