Parking Options

Street parking is available near the Alliance on SW 20th as well as in some private lots mentioned below. The lot designated on the photo by the green arrow at SW Columbia & SW 18th is open to Alliance students & visitors daily except Sunday.

Choice A: The Street in Front of the Kamm House Directly across SW 20th Avenue in front of the Kamm House are about 20 diagonal parking spots; park snugly so as many cars as possible will fit. Don’t park beyond the posted area at the end of the cul‐de‐sac and don’t park in the 6 double‐deep spots in the small lot on the south of our building which are designated for the building’s residents. Also note that there are posted time limits for street parking, and there is a risk of getting tickets by parking control personnel. Sorry, the Alliance is not responsible if you are ticketed by parking control.

Choice B: Willamette Dental Parking ‐ 1933 SW Jefferson Street Free parking at Willamette Dental is available to Alliance students after 6pm and on Saturdays only. This lot is located at the corner of SW 20th & Jefferson, north side of intersection (indicated by yellow arrow). It is posted ‘customer parking only’; the clinic is letting our students use the lot at the designated hours.

Choice C: Alliance Parking as Arranged with FUMC Church Alliance students and event attendees can park for free in the 32 spots in the lot closest to SW Columbia and SW 18th Avenue, near the Jefferson Street roundabout (indicated by green arrow) while attending AF classes or events on weekdays and Saturdays. This is a private lot which has signage, “Church Property Parking by Permission Only” and the Alliance logo at the bottom, and a large “A.” It is a five‐minute walk from this lot to the Kamm House. Initial your pass and list the class code (or event) on it; put the pass on your dash to identify you as with the Alliance. (These passes are only valid while attending classes or Alliance events). Note that neither the Alliance nor FUMC are responsible to damage or loss in the lot.

Handicap parking: Contact our office, and we can reserve a spot for you next to the Kamm building.
