Travel and Parking Options
Clark provides parking for nearly 2,500 student vehicles at our main campus. Parking lots are located on the east and west sides of Fort Vancouver Way north of McLoughlin Blvd. (see map for details)
Student and visitor parking at the main campus does not require a permit. Students may park in unmarked spaces. Spaces marked “F/S” are reserved for faculty and staff with permits. (They are open to the public from 5:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.) Complete parking regulations are available at the Security Office located in Gaiser Hall.
Ample parking is also available at Clark College at Columbia Tech Center. Parking at off-campus sites, including WSU Vancouver, is administered by the operators of those facilities.
A helpful reminder: The first few weeks of each quarter are particularly busy. Students, especially new students, are encouraged to arrive early to ensure that they have time to park and get to class. The Red and Green lots are typically filled by 9:00 a.m. Students are encouraged to find parking in other lots, particularly Yellow 1, Yellow 2 and the Silver lots.
C-TRAN, C-VAN and TriMet
C-TRAN service is available to our main campus, Clark College at Columbia Tech Center, Clark College at WSU Vancouver, and the downtown Economic & Community Development offices.
Clark College students may purchase a C-TRAN bus pass endorsement with their student ID card at a special rate. This BackPASS endorsement provides reduced cost bus transportation throughout Clark County. Passes are sold through the Clark College Bookstore. For information on C-VAN service, call 360-695-8918.
Information about TriMet (Portland transit) is available at the TriMet page
Bike racks and bike shelters are available across the main campus. Bike racks are available at Clark College at Columbia Tech Center. With more people riding bikes to classes and to work, it's important for riders and drivers to extend courtesy and use caution when traveling.
Carpools (ride share)
Six student carpool spots are available, Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Red Parking Lot #2. Carpools must include two or more people. There is no cost to acquire a carpool parking tag, but students must register at the Security Office in Gaiser Hall and all of the students participating in the carpool must be present to register. Carpool parking spaces will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
