Parking policy overview

We strive to make parking available to OSU students while receiving care or conducting business at SHS. This policy was developed in cooperation with, and is enforced by, OSU Parking Services.

After parking, permits may be obtained from any department at SHS. Returnto your vehicle immediately and display the permit on the dash board, driver's side.

If you receive a citation while a permit was being issued to you, leave the permit on your dash, but go to the main reception area of the second floor and explain what happened. You will be given a form that documents your situation and you'll be instructed to send it and the citation to the Traffic Office, where the ticket will be voided.

Accessible parking

There are four ADA parking spaces in the parking area on the north side of Student Health Services, Plageman Building, nearest the accessible ramp entrance.

There is also an online map of all ADA spaces on campus.


Parking near Plageman is very limited. We appreciate your courteous cooperation in observing this parking policy.

Six (6) parking spaces have been reserved for the exclusive use of students while at SHS. They are all clearly marked for this purpose.

It is your responsibility to request a permit upon arrival at SHS.

Permits will not be supplied after you have received a citation; however, if you receive one while obtaining your permit, SHS has a procedure to excuse you. Parking permits are valid for an unlimited time, as long as you do not remove your car or leave the building.

When only one of the six spaces remains, SHS requests that it be used only by patients who are in need of immediate medical care.

There are metered parking spaces in front of Dixon.

There are also pay-and-display spaces in the parking garage across from Gill Coliseum.

Pay-and-display spaces are available in the parking lot south of SW Washington Avenue.
