The number of parking spaces are limited at the hospital. Out of consideration for those who have to use a car to get to the hospital, we encourage those who can, to use public transport.
The largest car park for patients is the parking deck underneath the main building - Sentralblokka. In addition there is a parking garage in the hospital park, just after the driveway by Haukeland Hotel for patients, and there are some parking spaces by the Women's Clinic - Kvinneklinikken. There are designated parking spaces for the disabled in all the car parks.

Haukeland University Hospital use the ticketless and barrier-free parking system Sesam Sesam. A sign recognition system and cameras will register the licence plate number when driving in and out and you don't need a ticket. You will need the licence plate number when you pay.
