Newark Campus Parking

General Parking Rules

All students and personnel at the Ohio State University at Newark and the Central Ohio Technical College are subject to the traffic and parking regulations of the Newark Campus. In addition, standard traffic regulations and definitions, as enacted in the motor vehicle laws of the State of Ohio, will be enforced on campus property at all times.

  • The posted speed limit is 10 mph in all parking lots and 25 mph on University Drive that encircles the campus.
  • Designated parking areas have been posted and are reserved for holders of Faculty/Staff permits, disabled permits and State vehicles.
  • Students and visitors may park in any unrestricted parking space on campus - white-lined areas. Student, visitors, and employees without Faculty/Staff permits must have a white line on both sides of the vehicle.
  • Parking regulations are in effect and enforced 24 hours a day. The responsibility for finding a legal parking space rests with the motor vehicle operator regardless of weather or crowded conditions.
  • The Newark Campus reserves the right to remove, or have removed and impounded, any vehicle that is parked in such a manner as to constitute a hazard or parking violation. Owners of such vehicles will be required to pay all costs involved. The campus cannot assume responsibility for the care or protection of any vehicle or its contents at any time it is operated or parked on campus property. Owners should ensure that unattended vehicles are locked at all times.
  • Faculty and staff may purchase a parking permit online. This is the only way to purchase a parking permit at this time. After payment is made, the permit may be picked up in the Public Safety Office. Permits are good from the first day of autumn semester through the day before autumn semester of the following year.
  • Students may obtain a parking permit at no cost in the Public Safety office after August 3. Please bring your license plate number and student ID.
