Contractor & Vendor Parking
Transportation & Parking Services recognizes the important role contractors and vendors play to campus operations. Several permit options are available to accommodate campus parking needs.
Contractor & vendors are encouraged to obtain parking permits for campus by visiting the Transportation & Parking Services Office. A photo ID is required at time of permit issuance. Contractor & Vendor Permits are valid for use by the contracting/vending company in which they were issued to. Permits are for employees working for Ohio University as a company representative, and should not be used by students or faculty/staff.

Box trucks, semi's, and other industrial sized delivery vehicles may park in designated loading docks without a permit for a maximum of 30 minutes for delivery purposes. These vehicle types exceeding 30 minutes may receive a fine. Personal vehicles or vehicles who do not meet this description type should contact Transportation & Parking Services for alternative parking locations to meet loading needs.

Road & Sidewalk Closures
Transportation & Parking Services oversees road and sidewalk closures & approvals for campus. Requests should be submitted with associated MOT plans via the Road/Sidewalk Closure Request Form.
Road/Sidewalk closure requests should be submitted to Transportation & Parking Services for review and approval with a minimum of 5 business days notice. Closures should adhere to federal Manual Uniform of Traffic Control Device standards.
Projects which require the utilization of spaces on campus (storage of materials/equipment, lay down areas) or require spaces to be taken offline for a specific period of time to complete a project will be required to pay a daily reservation fee for spaces used. In addition to these space reservation fees, contractors/vendors will also be required to obtain a contractor/vendor permit if their intent is to park within spaces that are taken off- line.
Projects which require the storage of trailers, dumpsters, or storage units on campus (in parking spaces or grass areas) will be required to pay a utilization fee for spaces/areas taken offline. This does not include the storage of trailers, units, or dumpsters within designated fenced construction zones unless the designated location consists of marked parking locations. Any vehicles parked within designated construction areas regardless of fenced in area will be required to obtain a permit to park within the area.
Space reservations should be coordinated in advance of project. Contractors/vendors should submit reservation requests to Transportation & Parking Services for processing and review.
