Neighborhood parking

Please do not park anywhere in the neighborhoods surrounding our campuses.

Why can’t I park on neighborhood streets?

PCC is committed to insuring the livability of the neighborhoods adjacent its campuses. As a result, we have adopted a policy that prohibits students and staff from parking on neighborhood streets when engaged in any PCC related activity.

PCC has signed agreements with the City of Portland and the City of Lake Oswego allowing PCC Transportation and Parking Services to place Warning Notices on vehicles found parked in the neighborhoods around its various campuses and centers. PCC Transportation and Parking Services cannot issue parking citations for vehicles blocking driveways, mail boxes, etc. If a vehicle is parked in violation of any City Ordinance then this needs to be reported to the City of Portland Parking Department at 503-823-5195. Any faculty, staff, or student receiving two or more Warning Notices will be mailed a citation for Parking in the Neighborhood.

Please help PCC be a good neighbor and park on campus when engaged in any PCC related activity.  To see a map of the appropriate parking locations, see the campus maps.

I’m a PCC neighbor, but I’m still getting citations. What do I do?

Please call Sima in the Transportation and Parking Services office at 971-722-4703.  Sima will need your license plate number and once she confirms that you are a PCC neighbor she will mail out a little blue static cling sticker to place on the lower left corner of your windshield.  This little blue static cling sticker is in the shape of a house and says: Portland Community College Neighborhood Parking Permit.  You will never receive another warning after placing this static cling sticker in your vehicle.
