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. Both the personal and departmental passes must be displayed in the vehicle.
- Departmental A (Provides full access to all staff garages and any A, B or C unrestricted surface parking space on Central or West campus)
- Departmental B (Provides access only to any B or C unrestricted surface parking space on Central or 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 also must display appropriate A and B parking permits.
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.
