Find Your Way to Parking at MIT
If driving is your only commuting option, then these pages should help steer the way. Here you’ll find lots of useful information about permits, parking locations, and other rights and regulations. Included in this section is a step-by-step outline of how to go about applying for a permit, where on your car to affix the sticker (it’s very important), and how to cancel your parking. The Parking web pages are organized by category to help you select which one is appropriate for you.
Commuter parking is regulated by the Clean Air Act of 1973 and restricts MIT to providing parking for no more than 36% of its commuting population. All people with MIT appointments are eligible, but not entitled, to receive a parking permit for an MIT parking facility; this is regardless of whether they work full-time or part-time.
So to save money and our environment, we encourage you to consider alternatives to bringing your car to campus.
