The Ohio Union is a 318,000 square foot facility built on a foundation of rich history and Buckeye spirit. Located on The Ohio State University’s campus, the building has 34 unique meeting and event spaces and is near many on-campus and off-campus dining and entertainment options.
During the conference, breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be provided. However, if you want other options, there are several dining locations within the Ohio Union including the Union Market, a fast-casual option offering grab-and-go food choices, and Espress-OH, a coffee shop serving specialty drinks, breakfast items, and gelato.




​Upon arrival to the SOUTH Ohio Union parking garage (1759 North High Street), you must pull a ticket from the gate machine to enter the parking garage.
Bring that ticket with you to the conference registration desk to receive your barcoded validation sticker.
In order to exit the garage, you must insert your entry ticket with that barcoded validation sticker adhered to the ticket.
