Tickets and Fees

Tickets must be paid or appealed within 30 days of issuance.

The OHSU parking code is modeled after the City of Portland (Title 16) rules. Ticket fines and fees are set by order of the Presiding Judge of Multnomah County and are the same as for the City of Portland. OHSU enforces rules on OHSU-owned and controlled property (including Campus Drive), while the City of Portland will enforce rules on City streets.

OHSU is a patient facility. Patients and their visitors can park in any designated areas for free. Patient areas are reserved for patients only, and are strictly enforced. Occupying patient spaces for any reason other than personal health care or visiting a patient in a personal, non-working capacity is a violation of OHSU's Code of Conduct. People with a work or school affiliation with OHSU must receive coverage to park for appointments. 

For all other purposes, parking permits are required Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm excluding OHSU observed holidays

Pay a parking ticket

Fines double after thirty days of issuance, unless the ticket is paid for or appealed within the initial thirty days. If the ticket is unresolved after fifteen days of the fine doubling, the balance owed is transferred to an outside collection agency and a $15 collection fee is added to the total due. You are strongly encouraged to resolve your ticket as quickly as possible to avoid late fees and collections. Members who receive a parking ticket from Transportation and Parking have the right to appeal.

Unresolved fines double after the 30th day. Appeals must be submitted within 30 days of issuance of the ticket to receive an appeals hearing. 

PAY ONLINE

People with an OHSU login may pay tickets online by Visa, MasterCard or Discover. Eligible employees may also opt to pay via payroll and students may opt to transfer balances to their Banner accounts.

Appeal a parking ticket

Appeals are governed by the Ticket Appeals policy. Any appeals received after the 30th day won't be granted. In addition to the unpaid fine doubling after the 30th day, the vehicle operator may lose eligibility to renew a parking permit or receive a transit pass, may result in collection proceedings, and may represent violations of the OHSU Code of Conduct, potentially resulting in disciplinary action.

Second appeals

If the original appeal decision is unsatisfactory, members have the ability to submit a second appeal by one of the methods below. Appeal escalation requests must be submitted within fifteen days of the original appeal verdict.

The Strategic Transportation and Parking Advisory Committee (STPAC) is a committee of OHSU Members outside of the Transportation and Parking Department. The committee reviews the first and second appeal statements and the reason for the initial appeal denial to determine if an additional reduction in a parking fine is warranted. Their decision is final and any amount owed would be due within fifteen days of the verdict being reached.

You are encouraged, but not required to, attend STPAC in person to present your own case. In the event you cannot attend, your first and second appeal statements will be presented on your behalf. Second appeal hearings occur on the first Thursday of every month.

Log in to your online parking account or email ticketappeals@ohsu.edu  to request a second appeal hearing. Your hearing date, time and location will be communicated back to you via email.
