  • Parking

    PARKING NEAR PIELC
    There are a few different options for parking near the conference.

    First, you may purchase a visitor’s day pass for $10 a day by stopping by the UO Dept of Parking & Transportation office located on the corner of Franklin Blvd and Walnut St at 1401 Walnut St, Eugene, OR 97403. A visitor’s pass will allow you to park all day in any of the visitor lots located throughout campus, including the lot behind the Law School.

    Second, there is free two-hour street parking on the streets adjacent to the Law school. For example, 17th Avenue, Columbia St. between 17th and 19th Avenue and Moss Street all allow for two-hour parking. These streets are checked often by parking enforcement, but if you don’t mind moving your car every two hours from one spot to the next along the street, then this is a close and free parking option.

    Third, there is metered parking on streets near both the EMU and the Law School. Most meters around campus take both coins and credit cards.
    Finally, if you are willing to walk a few blocks up from the Law School, there is all day free parking on streets south of 23rd Avenue and east of Orchard Street.
