Hourly & Visitor Parking

Hourly & Visitor Parking Locations

Hourly and Visitor parking spaces are intended to accommodate PSU students, employees, and guests who choose to drive infrequently or as an alternative to their regular commute.

Payment is required all hours, all days except for official university holidays. Self-service pay stations do not provide change.

On-Street Parking

Most on-street parking in and around campus is managed by the Portland Bureau of Transportation. Parking rates and duration times may vary. Please visit the City of Portland Transportation website for more information about metered parking.

Pay-by-Plate & Pay-by-Phone

Most hourly parking areas at PSU now feature "Pay-by-Plate" and "Extend-by-Text" parking. This system creates new benefits for hourly parking:

  • No more receipt worries -- flipped over or hidden receipts are no longer an issue
  • Streamlined enforcement -- your chances of getting a citation are lower
  • Receive parking expiration alerts via text at no charge at most locations
  • Extend your parking time via text
  • Pay-by-Plate parking is simple. Just note your license plate number when you park, enter it at the pay station, pay, and take your receipt. Plus, the benefits of Extend-by-Text are available to any customer paying with Visa or Mastercard.

For a list of Frequently Asked Questions regarding Pay-by-Plate and Extend-by-Text, please see the link below.

NOTE: Each driver uses PSU's parking facilities at their own risk and responsibility.
