OHSU is a pay-to-park environment

With the exception of patients & patient visitors, all other parkers at OHSU are required to pay for parking. Please be mindful of all signage. Several garages on Marquam Hill and South Waterfront campuses contain areas for both employee parking and patient & patient visitor parking.


Do I Need A Permit To Park?

Valid parking permits are required Monday – Friday from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm. Permits are required to park in all employee parking lots during these hours.

OHSU offers a variety of daily and monthly paid parking permits as space permits. Most permits are subject to a waitlist and shift schedule requirements. Please see the options below:

After Hours (5:00 p.m - 8:00 a.m) & Weekend Parking

On nights and weekends, employees can park free of charge in any diamond zone, with the exception of any signed or reserved spaces. The Sam Jackson Garage, across the street from the Emergency Room remains restricted to 3 Diamond permit holders 24 / 7.

  • Employees are not allowed to park in patient parking at any time unless they are a patient or patient visitor.
