Parking Information

All vehicles parked on Olympic College property must be identified by an employee placard on display, student sticker properly affixed to the vehicle or visitor pass on the dashboard.  Registered students and employees are not permitted to use Visitors parking spaces without prior approval from Campus Safety.  Each level of placard/permit/pass allows the use of corresponding parking spaces.  Vehicle operators are responsible for ensuring their vehicle is registered with Campus Safety, properly identified and parked in accordance with OC Policy 200-16 and in compliance with all parking rules and regulations as provided and managed by the Director of Campus Safety.  We thank you in advance for parking in compliance with these requirements.

The Parking Office is a part of the Campus Safety Office, and is located in HSS101 on the Bremerton campus.  Campus Safety is responsible for the enforcement of all Student Parking Rules and Regulations and parking for employees and visitors at Olympic College.

You will need the following items to get your parking permit: valid vehicle registration, proof of paid tuition, and photo ID.

All student vehicles must display a valid parking sticker.  All Faculty/Staff vehicles must display a valid parking placard.  Each vehicle parking on campus must be registered with Campus Safety.  Please bring your proof of paid class registration (students) payroll deduction form or cashier's receipt (faculty/staff) and valid vehicle registration for each vehicle to be registered.  Campus Safety customer service desk is located in the Facilities Services Building, 2nd floor at the top of the stairs.

All visitor vehicles must display a valid visitor parking pass.  Employees and Students are not permitted to park in visitor parking.

Carpool and Handicapped parking spaces are restricted to those with valid placards.

Electronic Car Charging Stations in G-1 General Lot

There are five stations available on a first-come-first-served basis.

To register go to www.blinknetwork.com. On that site, go to the membership tab. Highlight button next to the level of membership you wish to use and follow the instructions.

After you register, you will receive a card. The chargers are activated by using the card and a pass code.

The card can also be used at other chargers at locations across the U.S. There is a map on the web site that not only shows you where there are charging stations, but which ones are currently being used by someone else. The map does not show our stations yet, but should show our location soon.

Visitor Parking is restricted to visitors and guests of Olympic College


All visitors are required to display a visitor parking pass.  Visitor parking passes are available from Campus Safety in HSS101, Student Services at OCP and OCS, or from your campus sponsor for your event.  Olympic College Policy 200-16 prohibits registered students, staff and faculty from parking in visitors parking.  Students, staff and faculty who park in visitor parking will be cited.

Street parking is very limited and enforced by the City of Bremerton.  These spaces are parallel parking spaces along the curbing of 18th, 16th, Lincoln and Ohio.  Olympic College manages and enforces all other areas, including pull in parking stalls on 16th and angled parking stalls along Broadway, both of which require a valid Olympic College parking decal, placard or permit at all times.  WATCH THE SIGNS ON THE CITY STREETS AND PAINTED CURBS/PAVEMENT TO AVOID BEING CITED.

Rideshare Vehicle Registration

The Campus Safety office strongly supports carpools and vanpools.  If you are interested, you can apply for a carpool  placard or vanpool by contacting the Kitsap Transit Rideshare Program at 360-373-2877 or 1-800-501-RIDE or by applying online at: http://www.kitsaptransit.com/rider-resources/smart-commuter
Rideshare parking is enforced 24 hours a day.  Vehicles without a valid Rideshare/Carpool parking pass will be cited.
