On-Campus Parking 

Please download the UO Campus map    (Click-on Parking to highlight the parking lots.)

The University of Oregon campus is experiencing four major construction sites this summer, including the rebuilding of the famous Hayward Track & Field Stadium, the building of the Knight Applied Science Campus on Franklin Avenue, and the building of a new apartment-shopping complex on the Romania Warehouse site.  A new parking garage will be under construction this summer on the site of much used UO parking Lot 4. This has contributed to the limited number of parking spaces available on campus. APSI participants will have a number of options for parking on-campus.

Option A: APSI participants can park their cars in one of two designated lighted faculty/staff parking areas and only with a UO Parking Pass displayed from the windshield of the car.  These faculty/staff parking areas are within a healthy, get your exercise for the day, walking distance from the Erb Memorial Union (EMU) and the Science Buildings.  Daytime only faculty/staff parking areas Parking Passes are $8 per car per day in Lots 59, 52, 53, and 54 (Yellow Color on the Campus Map = Student/Faculty/Staff).  These parking lots are seven blocks away from the EMU, an estimated walk time of 15 minutes. Daytime and Overnight combined Parking Passes for UO Dorm participants are $12 per car per day in Lot 34E (Yellow Color on the Campus Map = Student/Faculty/Staff).  This lot is about four blocks away from the EMU, an estimated walk time of 10 minutes.

Option B:  There are about 100 parking meters spaces around campus available on a first-come, first served basis. The location of the metered parking spaces are designated with the orange color on the UO campus map.  Metered parking on campus is expensive.  You will need a credit card.  There is metered parking in the lot next to the EMU and on University Street on the side of the Student Recreation Center and by McArthur Court, about one block from the EMU.

Option C:  There is free day-time parking in the lots on the South-West side of Autzen Stadium between Leo Harris Parkway and the Randy & Suzie Pape Soccer Complex.  No overnight parking. This area is on the far side of campus on the other side of the Willamette River.  There is a well-travelled paved pedestrian/bike path from Autzen Stadium, through Alton Baker Park, over the Willamette River pedestrian/bike Autzen Bridge to the UO Fine Arts Studios, then across the 6-lane Franklin Avenue, under Onyx Bridge and then one block to the EMU.  Overall, this is a scenic, pleasant 20-25 minute walk.  If one brings a bicycle, you can bike from Autzen Stadium to the EMU in 8 minutes.
