A resource for patients and their visitors
Our spaces are limited in size and number. A reservation is required and vehicles may be turned away or subject to removal if the lot is full and/or a vehicle is impeding other necessary access to the lot. If we are unable to accommodate your vehicle, we will gladly help you plan other arrangements. Patient passenger vehicles are welcome in patient parking areas free of charge 24/7.
To qualify for OHSU RV parking, a patient or relative of a patient in an active treatment program at OHSU must occupy the RV. Patients and their families will be accommodated on a space available basis.
Please review the eligibility requirements to ensure we can accommodate your needs. We recognize the difficulty in planning ahead for some hospital visits, but as a courtesy to other patients, please notify us as soon as possible if your reservation must change.
Questions? Don’t hesitate to call us at 503-494-8283 x0. Transportation & Parking Customer Service is open Monday through Friday, 7am to 5pm. Closed 2:30 to 3:30pm Fridays for staff meeting, as well as campus-observed holidays.
Eligibility is determined at Transportation & Parking’s discretion. To qualify for OHSU RV parking, a patient or relative of a patient must occupy the RV. RVs may arrive up to 48 hours before active treatment begins and vacate within 48 hours of when active treatment ceases. Before parking, contact us to arrange a reservation and obtain a permit.
First Reserve First Serve. OHSU has 6 RVs spaces. Contact us as soon as you know you’ll be visiting, as these spaces fill quickly by filling out the RV Patient/Patient Visitor request form.
Size Limits. Vehicles over 36ft should consider outside arrangements. Vehicles under 20ft should park in regular-sized parking spaces.
The Reservation’s Primary Contact should be on campus daily, reachable by phone, and have the ability to move the RV as needed.
The Lot Location is at SW 6th Ave & SW Gaines St., in Portland, OR. It is approximately 1/3 of a mile (10 minute walk) from the main hospital and Transportation & Parking. If you need transport, contact Public Safety Non-Emergency: 503-494-7744.
Recommended Route: Terwilliger to Veterans Hospital Rd. We recommend mapping a route to OHSU from your destination before traveling as we may not be available to offer detailed directions.
Arriving after hours? Park in the lot at SW Gaines & 6th Ave directly in reserved space if assigned. If no space has been assigned, please park at the southern edge of the lot. Check in with Transportation & Parking during business hours. Please do not park in a numbered space you have not been assigned.
During your stay
Electrical hookups are located at each of the six reserve spaces.
Drinking Water is available at the supply station outside the gate at the Vehicle Maintenance Garage, at the west end of the RV lot. During winter, the water supply is shut down to prevent pipes from freezing. During business hours, garage employees may connect a hose to a water supply in the building’s boiler.
Waste Disposal is available from Schulz-Clearwater (503-692-9009), Tuesdays only. Their fee is approximately $50 and includes black and grey water.
Passenger Vehicles under 20ft may park in any patient parking lot. Please note that the RV parking is within a lot that is otherwise paid, permit parking. Patient visitor vehicles are welcome after hours and weekends in the lot. If you have a passenger vehicle, in addition to an RV, please ask Transportation & Parking Customer Service for a patient pass to alert enforcement that you are a patient visitor and are permitted to park free on campus for the entirety of your stay.
Pets, for their safety, must be leashed and attended on campus. Waste clean-up is the pet owner’s responsibility. As a courtesy to resting patients, consider a sitter if your pet is prone to loud noise.
