Parking facilities at MIT are extremely limited. Students are advised to avoid bringing an automobile to MIT if possible. In general, the Institute cannot provide parking for freshmen. Students may obtain information about parking on campus and request a parking permit on the MIT Parking and Transportation Office website, http://web.mit.edu/facilities/transportation/parking/student/index.html. Students with disabilities who have parking requests should see the Medical Department or Student Disabilities Services for approval.
Students who plan to bring motor vehicles to Cambridge should take careful note of the information regarding pertinent Massachusetts laws distributed with registration material. In addition, since the rate of car thefts in this state is one of the highest in the nation, serious consideration should be given to equipping automobiles with anti-theft devices.
Information about parking and other transportation resources at MIT is available at http://web.mit.edu/facilities/transportation/ or at the MIT Parking and Transportation office, Room W20-022.
