Driving and parking

For non-patients, South Waterfront construction impacts to parking are described here.

OHSU is Portland's largest employer and medical destination visited by up to 20,000 people daily. With only 2 narrow roads, congestion reduction is vital for neighbors, patients, emergency access, and you. 

For this reason, City of Portland has capped parking on campus and an aerial commuter tram provides fast, reliable access to Marquam Hill. 

We offer diverse incentives for employees, students and anyone with an OHSU badge to try alternatives to driving alone. Every person who chooses not to drive improves access for all.

Free parking is available at 35 locations with direct transit connections to OHSU. Find a park and ride here.
