Driving and Parking

Thousands of people visit OHSU daily. Congestion reduction is vital for patients, neighbors, emergency access, and you. For this reason, parking for non-patients is limited. An aerial tram provides fast, reliable access to Marquam Hill and South Waterfront.

Patient parking

Patients and their personal visitors park free in patient parking and use complimentary valet where available. For all other purposes, patient zones are strictly prohibited and OHSU is pay to park Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm. 

Vehicles and people with a work or education affiliation with OHSU must validate personal patient parking. Learn how here.
