Parking your personal vehicle

Active healthcare volunteers may park in Garage F, Dotter lot for shifts longer than 4 hours or the Schnitzer lot at south waterfront.

To claim parking paid by OVV healthcare, volunteers are to utilize nearby pay stations in designated pay station lots, and enter the given parking code under the “coupon code” pay option.

Registered active visitors/volunteers may park in any 1, 2 or 3 diamond-permit parking lots and garages at an hourly or daily rate of pay.

To purchase daily parking permits, visitors/volunteers may create an online account with the OHSU Transportation and Parking website, allowing patrons to purchase 1, 2, and 3 diamond parking permits in advance, or purchase from the Transportation and Parking Customer Service office day-of.

To purchase hourly parking, visitors/volunteers are to utilize nearby paystations in designated paystation lots (Campus Garage, Schnitzer, Campus Drive, Sam Jackson Garage, etc.).

  • Visitors/volunteers are never to park in patient and visitor parking, unless they are here within that capacity. In the event they are a visitor or patient they are to call the Parking Office, 503-494-8283 to be added to the "Do Not Ticket" list for the day.
