Vendor Parking

All vehicles parked outside a fenced staging area on university property must display a valid CSU Parking hangtag permit unless parked in a pay-per-hour space (at a meter or in Lot 22, Prospect or South Garage). If parked at a meter, the meter must be paid. Use of any parking facilities for construction related activity must be approved in advance by CSU Parking & Transportation Services.

CSU Parking & Transportation Services offers the following options for contractors and construction workers who choose to park on campus.

  1. Purchase a contractor hangtag. This hangtag will have an expiration date based on the needs of the patron and will be accepted for parking in any CSU parking facility except at meters or in Lot 22, Prospect or South Garage. Contractor hangtags cost $50.00 per week and the full fee is charged for any partial week unless the purchase is made after 12:00 noon on a Friday.
  2. Purchase scratch off hangtags which permit access to parking on a per-day basis. Contractor Scratch off Hangtags are $8.00 each and are good for only one day of parking.

Contractor hangtags or scratch off hangtags must be purchased from the office of Parking & Transportation Services located in Euclid Commons at East 24th and Euclid. The Office is open Monday through Friday 8 AM to 5 PM. The CSU Parking & Transportation Services Office accepts cash, check, Visa & Mastercard, for parking purchases.

Contractors and construction workers may also find parking options in the CSU neighborhood.  Information about these options can be found on the parking website at http://www.csuohio.edu/parking
