You can add yourself to a waitlist for a sold-out zone by logging in to your account, and selecting "Sold out - Join Waiting List" for the permit and zone of your choice. You can also call or email Transportation Services to request to be added.
Important: You will be notified via email if a permit in your zone of choice becomes available.
Waitlists reset each year for Annual Commuter A, B or C permits and each Term for Campus Resident R permits. Waitlist requests do not guarantee a permit will be awarded for a permit location. If you were on a waitlist in the past but were not notified of an available permit, you may purchase a permit of your choice during general permit sales, subject to availability.
Note: The waitlists for the A1 and A2 zones are capped at 100 entries. The A1 and A2 zones are the most in-demand commuter zones on campus, and it is not likely that we will be able to issue permits to everyone on these waitlists.
Commuter zone parking permits may be exchanged if permits are available for the new zone.
To exchange your parking permit, please call or email Transportation Services.
If you withdraw as a student or leave employment at OSU, you may be eligible for a prorated refund for A, B, or C zone annual parking permits. Students residing in Resident Apartments may receive a prorated refund for RA permits if they are no longer living in University housing.
