pay station parkingOHSU is a pay-to-park environment

Employees assist in patient access by parking in diamond zones only. OHSU covers the cost of parking for patients and their personal visitors--who park free in patient zones. Road capacity limits on campus parking. Explore alternate options here.

After Hours (5pm to 8am) & Weekends

Nights and weekends, employees park free,with the exception of any signed or reserved spaces. Garage C (Sam Jackson), is restricted to 3 Diamond permits 24/7. Patient parking is restricted 24/7.

ADA Parking Permit

Special Reserved permit spaces are available for mobility-impaired parkers with an ADA placard—including employees, students, volunteers and temporary employees. Patients and patient visitors with similar needs may use Federal ADA parking spaces.For short-term special needs that might not merit a DMV placard, contact us.
