How to Get Here
Ride the Bus
The COTA busline offers convenient service from around Columbus directly into downtown, practically to our doorstep.
Take the #2 bus from Ohio State's campus and get off at the State or Town Street stop. The best part: OSU students ride COTA for FREE with their Buck-ID!
Ride Your Bike
A number of bike trails, bike lanes, and shared roadways lead right to the OSU Urban Arts Space. Bike racks are available on Town Street between High and Front, by our Galleria entrance.

There are three parking garages near Urban Arts Space, as well as metered street parking available.
If you are coming to the Space for an evening event or program, most street parking is free after 10 p.m. but spaces are limited.
