Parent and Family Weekend

October 21-23, 2016

The Ohio State campus is a student's home away from home, and each year we invite family members to make it their home as well during Parent and Family Weekend. Share the Ohio State experience as you spend time connecting with your student, interacting with faculty and staff, and experiencing what makes being a Buckeye so special.

Visitor parking on campus

There are two basic options for visitor parking when visiting the Ohio State campus, and both require payment:

  • Garage parking: found within the academic core and Wexner Medical Center areas
  • Surface lot parking: typically located along the campus perimeter

Visitors may pay through pay-by-plate machines for surface parking or through ticketed machines in the garages. Surface lots are on average $1.75/hour.
