Parking

Parking at the Hillsboro Campus is very limited

Students, Faculty and Staff alike, are encouraged to utilize Tri-Met and MAX services whenever possible. The MAX light rail line stops at the front doors to our campus.

Inter-Modal Transit Facility (ITF)

In a unique partnership with Tri-Met, Tuality Hospital, Portland Community College and the City of Hillsboro, the university joined in the construction of the new ITF, located at 8th & Baseline, adjacent to our campus.

This facility provides parking for Tuality, Pacific and PCC visitors as well as "park & ride" options for MAX customers.

University Faculty and Staff are provided access to reserved parking on the 3-5 floors of the ITF. Permits for student parking in the ITF are also available to purchase. Contact Pam Arnold at pjarnold@pacificu.edu in St. 230 of HPC-2 for more information (x2622)

Students are NOT allowed to park in the ITF without a paid permit.
