Faculty and Staff Parking Permits

Transportation & Parking Services (TPS) has currently delayed the annual faculty/staff permit renewal period while guidance for campus operations is developed. Current campus permits will be honored beyond their expiration date of June 30th, 2020 to support faculty/staff who need parking access on campus. Payroll deductions have been suspended at this time until further notice. A communication will be distributed in advance to faculty/staff once a new date has been established for the annual permit renewal process and as additional information regarding the timing of reinstatement of payroll deductions is available.   Please contact the TPS Customer Care Center at tps@ohio.edu for questions regarding your campus parking permit access.

To opt in or out of your parking permit, you must do so during the annual opt in and out process, dates provided by Human Resources.
