Parking Information

University of Oregon parking map  [PDF icon]  j_hall_parking.pdf

University Parking. Attached is the University’s parking map. The Lewis Lounge/Law School is at the corner of 15th and Agate St. There are parking meters (coin) all along Agate St. and 15th. What I would recommend is the Columbia Parking garage (#37 on the map) next to the Mathew Knight Basketball arena. This is open until 11:00p, and there are no events going on, on the 25th. It’s a fairly short walk to the Law School.
Street Parking. In addition to university parking, there are credit card meters along both Agate south of 15th and on 13th east of Agate. Those credit card meters allow for 10 hour parking.  The UO meters only take quarters and are typically limited to 5 hours.  Finally, for those in government vehicles, they can park at any meter without charge on campus or on city property. PLEASE NOTE: the Prefontane Classic will be being set up on the 25th. So street parking may be limited.
