Parking | Forest Grove Campus

Parking is available in designated lots on campus and on the city streets around campus.

Students, staff and faculty must register their vehicles to obtain a parking permit. Student parking permits are $50. Parking permits are valid January to December and must be renewed each year. All you have to do is fill out the registration form and permits will be mailed to your UC Box. You will need your license plate number, as well as the make, model, year and color of your car.

Special overnight permits are available for visitors and overnight parking. Visit the Pacific Information Center or Campus Public Safety to obtain a temporary parking permit or fill out this form to request in advance.

Please follow all posted parking regulations in campus lots and city streets. Parking regulations on surrounding streets are enforced by Forest Grove Police. See the campus map (pdf) for details of on-campus parking. On-campus regulations are enforced by Campus Public Safety. On-campus citations may be appealed with the Parking Ticket Appeal Form (pdf) at the PIC or Student Life.

Parking Over the Summer

Students in good academic and conduct standing with the university may park their vehicles in a university parking lot during the summer months.

Students not living in Summer Housing, but who are enrolled for classes in Fall 2021, must send an email to and include the following information:

  • Make, model and color of vehicle
  • License plate number
  • Pacific University Parking Permit number
  • Date you are leaving the vehicle
  • Date you are picking up the vehicle
  • Your emergency contact information (mobile phone number, email address)
  • Contact information of a local person that you are leaving you vehicle keys with in case the vehicle needs to be moved

Following Campus Public Safety's confirmed receipt of this information, students may park their vehicles in the northwest corner of K-Lot between Stoller Center and Main Street.

Students who have registered and been approved for Summer Housing MUST park in either E-Lot or K-Lot, which are two of the normal overnight parking lots. Student residents are not authorized to park their vehicles overnight in any other lot.

Failure to follow this procedure will incur a $100 fine.
