NOTE: POSSE PARKING IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE DUE TO A NUMBER OF FACTORS, INCLUDING CAMPUS CONSTRUCTION, LOT AVAILABILITY AND DONOR DEMAND. IF CHANGES TO THE MAP ARE NECESSARY, AN UPDATED MAP WILL BE POSTED ONLINE AS SOON AS IT BECOMES AVAILABLE. EVERY EFFORT WILL BE MADE TO PROVIDE POSSE DONORS THE BEST PARKING AVAILABLE ON GAMEDAY.
POSSE parking is based on annual giving to OSU Athletics from July 1 to June 30.*
In order to receive the benefit of parking for football, men’s basketball, women’s basketball and wrestling, members of the POSSE must qualify based upon the following criteria:
- Be a donor of at least the minimum amount to qualify (based upon sport)
- Be a season ticket holder of that particular sport (football receives football parking, women’s basketball receives women’s basketball parking, men’s basketball receives men’s basketball parking and wrestling receives wrestling parking)
* Example: Pete already has 2018 football season tickets. His seat contribution is due no later than June 30, 2018, earning benefits (such as parking) for the 2018 football season. In September of 2018, Pete purchases Wrestling season tickets which require an additional seat contribution that will be credited to the current Wrestling season (rather than be applied toward the next giving year). All other gifts — except seat contributions — made after the June 30 deadline will be applied to the 2019 giving year, unless part of a prior payment plan.

MEN’S BASKETBALL – The POSSE’s Cowboy Basketball parking benefits are provided to donors who are season ticket holders and current POSSE members with annual giving (from July 1 – June 30) to OSU Athletics at $1,500 or more.
