Parking Basics

We offer short- and long-term parking on our main campus in Bend, Oregon (1500 SW Chandler Avenue). Parking is also available at the Graduate & Research Center at 650 SW Columbia St. Please review the following permit information before your visit.

If you park in the short-term lot at 1500 SW Chandler Ave, a valid virtual permit is required Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. We encourage all parkers to purchase a virtual permit online. Hourly or daily permits can be obtained at the kiosk located between Tykeson Hall and Obsidian Hall. Your vehicle license plate serves as the permit and must be visible at all times; no physical permits are issued.

We encourage use of active transportation to support healthy lifestyles, reduce emissions, and save you money. Learn more about all travel options to our campus.

Please note that during snow events, the City of Bend may declare a "snow emergency" and restrict parking adjacent to the campus on Chandler Avenue. Sign up for email alerts or find more information on the City of Bend website.

Visitors

Visitors may park in any OSU-Cascades lot, although fees apply on the main campus, Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
