When you arrive at campus, be sure to stop by the Safety and Security Office (in the Administration Building at 107 N. Ninth Street) to pick up a visitor parking pass. These are also the folks you should talk with should you get a ticket while you're here.

There are a lot of ways to get around Columbus. If you don’t want to go by car, here are some others that work best for a short visit:

Bus. Check out our local bus schedules through the Central Ohio Transit Authority here. CCAD students with a valid ID can ride any COTA bus for free. Otherwise, local one-way fares cost $2. Be sure to have exact change on hand; the buses don’t accept debit or credit cards or give change.

Bike. Rent a bike through Columbus’s bike share program, CoGo, which has plenty of bikes on campus and throughout the city.
