Parking and Entry Door


For the Open House (and after 6pm any day), you may park in the OHSU Tech Transfer parking lot, which is the separate lot east of the staff parking area, for free. Please do not park in any spaces labelled for South Waterfront Heating and Storage.


For the Info Sessions at 9:00 am, parking in the area is limited to metered street parking. The Old Spaghetti Factory does not approve of using their parking spaces unless you are dining there.


The public entrance to the school is the door (not the gate) on the east side of the building near the school staff’s parking area. If the door is not open for the event, please ring the bell and announce yourself and you will be buzzed in.
