Permit Requirements for EV Parking

Vehicles parked in electric vehicle (EV) parking spaces require a permit to be displayed for the zone in which the charging station is located. However, Transportation Services offers some flexibility for EV space users.

Commuters with electric vehicles may use their commuter parking permit laterally across zones to access EV spaces, and may also choose to use the park-down feature of the zonal system to access EV spaces in a lower tiered zone. For example, a commuter with an A2 permit and an electric vehicle may use the EV spaces in an A1 Zone, or any of the charging stations in the B or C Zones. The table below outlines which zonal permits may access the designated charging station locations on campus. For more information about EV parking at OSU visit the EV Charging page on the Sustainability at OSU website.

On the following table, an “X” indicates the type of commuter permit that is valid for each EV Charging Station. The vehicle must be a plug-in electric (or plug-in hybrid) vehicle, and must be plugged into a charging station, to use an EV Charging space.
