Update on Holiday Season Competition Registration

UPDATE as of November 10, 2013: The club has released a letter explaining why registration for the Holiday Season Competition was closed early.

Registration for the Holiday Season Competition is closed. We have had an overwhelming response to our event, and we have filled all available entry spots. We have already expanded our hours from last year, and we have filled that time as well.

We regret disappointing anyone, but we are delighted that so many people are eager to join us on December 14.

Parking Information for the OSU Rink


The parking lots surrounding the OSU Ice Rink are managed by CampusParc. You have several options for parking when skating at the rink.

1) Park with a valid OSU faculty/staff/student permit.
2) Park with a Visitor Surface Lot Permit (Off-Peak) (obtained from 160 Bevis Hall at 1080 Carmack Road on West Campus). These are available in single, multi-day and monthly increments. See for business hours, etc.
3) Park with a single-use validation ticket obtained from the blue Pay-n-Display kiosks (they take coins and credit/debit cards).
4) Park with ParkMobile, which is a new visitor payment option that utilizes pay-by-phone and smart phone applications. ParkMobile accounts can be registered online at, via the ParkMobile app, or in their automated phone system at 877-727-5009 and entering the required information to create an account. The OSU ice rink parking lot zone number is 69318.
5) Park without paying and risk getting a ticket (not suggested!).

At times, CampusParc personnel are on site at the lot entrances collecting a flat-rate event parking fee. If you will be at the rink for several hours, the event fee may be cheaper than other options.
