On commencement day, please allow ample time to arrive, park and depart.

Shuttle buses will run from West Campus parking lots to the Herrick Drive Transit Hub beginning at 9:00 a.m. until one hour after the ceremony concludes. Guests are strongly encouraged to use the West Campus parking and shuttles. It is a very effect way to get to and from the ceremony.

Parking is also available on a first-come, first-served basis in the north St. John Arena Lot and any of the permit zones around Ag Campus, the Schottenstein Center, or the student residence halls. No Ohio State parking permit is required. The Arps, Ohio Union, Neil Avenue and Lane Avenue garages will be available at no charge. These parking areas will fill quickly.

Disability parking is located in the East Stadium lot 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.

Guests arriving by a car service or an app-based car service should be dropped off at the Sisson Hall parking lots or parking lots near the Schottenstein Center.
