Visitors & Other General Information

Individuals visiting campus during evening or weekend hours may opt to utilize one of the following parking options:

The dark green and purple lots on campus require a specific Ohio University parking permit Monday-Friday 7 AM - 5 PM. These lots are open parking areas at all other times, provided the lot is not being used for special event parking. Individuals must park within a regular non-metered, non-restricted space within the lot.

Additional visitor parking is also available via the Baker University Center pay-to-park garage and meters located on campus. Please refer to for further information regarding Baker Center Garage rates and hours of operation. Meter fees are $0.75/hour. All fees must be paid when parking at a meter on campus. Meter fees may be paid with coins at the meter, or via Parkmobile - an app available for smartphones.

All vehicles must be parked in a valid and legal space within a university parking lot. Vehicles which require use of multiple spaces must coordinate these needs with Parking Services in advance of arrival and obtain proper permits. A limited number of RV parking spaces are available for special event weekends (Home Football Weekend Games, Dad's Weekend, Commencement). RV parking must be secured in advance of arrival by contacting Parking Services at 740-593-1917. Reservations are done on a first come first served basis and reservations are only permitted for approved special event weekends. RV's must obtain proper permits to authorize parking on campus and utilize the approved parking locations specified at time of reservation.
