Parking

Shuttle buses will run from West Campus parking lots to the Drake Performance and Event Center beginning at 9:00 AM until one hour after the ceremony concludes.  Guests are strongly encouraged to use the West Campus parking and shuttles.  It is a very efficient way to get to and from the ceremony.

Parking is also available on a first-come, first-served basis in the south St. John Arena Lot and any of the permit zones around Ag Campus, Schottenstein Cent, the student residence halls, or on West Campus.  No Ohio State parking permit is required.  The Arps, Ohio Union, Tuttle Park Place, Neil Avenue and Lane Avenue parking garages will be available at no charge.  These parking areas will fill quickly.  Again, guests are encouraged to use the shuttle buses from West Campus parking lots.

Disability parking is located in the East Stadium Lot on a first-come, first-served basis.  A permanent or temporary Ohio or other state-issued Disability Placard is required. Enter the East Stadium Lot from Tuttle Park Place.  Please plan to arrive early as reserved parking is not guaranteed.  Contact the Office of Commencement and Special Events at (614) 292-9051 with questions.
