RV parking for patients by reservation

Restricted from public use

RV spaces are provided as available for OHSU patients and their family members; free of charge. Spaces are limited in size and number. OHSU's RV lot is strictly limited to people with prior approved reservations and a direct association with an OHSU inpatient.  A patient appointment and reservation confirmation are required.  Unauthorized vehicles or vehicles that impede authorized access will be ticketed and removed to ensure access for patient reservations. To make a reservation, please email commute@ohsu.edu.

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.

If we are unable to accommodate your vehicle: A variety of RV accommodations are located in the Portland Metro Region. Patient passenger vehicles that fit in normal size parking spaces are welcome at no charge and at all hours in patient parking areas only. Please contact the clinic associated with your healthcare appointments or your human services team for additional resources.

Please review the eligibility requirements below 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, be cancelled or extended.

Resources

Eligibility is determined at Campus Access and Commute Services' 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. Contact us as soon as you know you’ll be visiting, as limited spaces fill quickly.

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.

Arriving after hours? Park in the lot, directly in a reserved space if assigned. If no space has been assigned, please park at the southern edge of the lot. Check in with Campus Access and Commute Services during business hours. Please do not park in a numbered space you have not been assigned as this may displace a patient with reservation and you will have to move your vehicle.
