Traffic Alert: Parking reminders for Ohio State University men’s basketball games  

With the popularity of Ohio State men’s basketball team, fans looking to avoid heavier traffic and missing any of the game should plan to arrive at least 45-60 minutes before game time. Doors to the Jerome Schottenstein Center open 90 minutes prior to tip-off.

Fans with parking passes must clearly display them when approaching parking lots. Officers need to see them and sort traffic accordingly.

Fans arriving within 30 minutes to tip-off may be directed to other on-campus parking locations. Parking immediately around the Arena is limited and guests are encouraged to use campus lots south of Lane Ave. near St. John Arena and Ohio Stadium.  Walking time from the south lots is about five minutes. Alternate routes from 315 are available at Med Center Drive, Ackerman, North Broadway and Kinnear and westbound from I-71

Shuttle services will be available in the Buckeye Lots north of Value City Arena at the corner of Fred Taylor Dr. and Ackerman. 

Several variables affect traffic conditions, including venue attendance, weather conditions, university business/class traffic and other campus events, which may warrant a change in traffic patterns from time-to-time. Please obey officers. They are working to get fans to the closest available parking location.
