Additional Parking Options

To avoid parking issues all together, try one of the alternatives available to PCC students and staff; PCC shuttles, Ride Share, Biking, Public Transit or Car Sharing.

Southeast Center

Parking is available 7am-5pm in the Slavic Church parking lot just north of campus. PCC parking permit is required.


PCC students and staff may park, with a valid PCC parking permit, in the Emmanuel Church parking lot located south of Killingsworth on Sumner & Michigan Ave. Parking is permitted on all four sides of the church.

Additional free parking for those visiting Cascade is available at the PMWTC (5600 NE 42nd).  You can park at the PMWTC for free and ride the PCC Shuttle to Cascade Campus for free!  TriMet also operates bus 72 along the route at a frequent service.

Sylvania Overflow Parking

Overflow parking, with shuttle service, is available for Sylvania students/staff at Mt. Park Church. The last shuttle to the church parking lot will leave Sylvania at 3pm daily. To reach the church overflow lot drive south on 49th past the main entrance to Sylvania. Turn left at the first stop light (McNary). Follow McNary to the first stop sign and then turn right. Church parking lot will be on your right. Please park in the large church lot. After the first week of classes a PCC parking permit will be required to park in the church lot.

Overflow parking shuttles are generally in operation during peak hours at the beginning of the term. Hours may be extended depending on use.
