OhioNET News

We at OhioNET hope that you are enjoying the best of the season, and we are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the good work that you do.

We will be celebrating the spirit of the season by volunteering to help the less fortunate of Central Ohio through the Salvation Army Christmas Cheer program on December 17, and our office will be closed on December 24, 25, and January 1.

The OhioNET staff would like to wish you Happy Holidays and all of the best for 2016.

As you probably know, OhioNET currently has overflow parking arranged at the Ohio State University’s building next door when we have large meetings here. We have just been informed that, effective November 30th, Ohio State will be relocating 40 employees to the Lane Avenue location; this means that they will no longer be able to provide us with that overflow parking.

In light of that fact, we would like to suggest some other options for busy days:

  • Street parking is available on Vassar Place and Osborn Drive to the west of the OhioNET building
  • There are also four parking spaces in front of OhioNET and the Roll building on Lane Avenue.

If you have questions or concerns about this new development, please contact Jennifer Turner at (800) 686-8975 x22 or jennifert@ohionet.org.
