Parking Services

We offer short- and long-term parking on and near our campus in Bend, Oregon. Please review our parking lot location map and the following permit information before your visit.

If you park in the short-term lot on campus, a valid virtual permit is required Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Permits can be obtained for a fee online or at the kiosk located between Tykeson Hall and the Dining 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.
