PCC offers many parking and transportation options at all of its campuses and centers. The campus map shows parking locations for all campuses and centers, as well as TriMet and PCC shuttle stop locations.

Parking permits

tag All vehicles parked at PCC must properly display a valid parking permit.

Student Annual Permit Holders:  The annual permit is valid for four terms, but you only pay for three terms.  Since the permit was used for two terms, we have posted a credit to your PCC student account in the amount of $50 to the accounts of all students who purchased student annual permits (and have not previously returned the permits).  There is nothing you need to do.  You do NOT need to return your student annual permit.


Online sales of Winter term parking permits have ended.  The winners of the random drawing for one of ten free Winter term permits were: Glen S, Margo M, Alexander P, Olivia W, Alex M, Sam L, Chang L, Amber H, Yuri I, and Kenji K.
