I use the athletic facilities at MIT (Johnson Athletics Center, Zesiger Sports and Fitness Center) and am a member of the Department of Athletics, Physical Education, and Recreation (DAPER). Am I eligible for affiliate parking?
Yes, DAPER members with an MIT account are eligible to apply for affiliate parking on campus and may be eligible to park at the 139 Mass Ave lot for a discounted rate. For more information, please contact the Parking & Transportation Office and/or DAPER.
I am an MIT construction project manager, and I have a vendor who needs on-campus parking for a limited time. Is affiliate parking available to this vendor?
Some vendors are eligible for affiliate parking. MIT project managers should contact the Parking & Transportation Office to discuss your request.
I am an uncompensated volunteer, and I am wondering if I have any parking options other than the affiliate parking rate.
If you are an uncompensated volunteer, you or your sponsor should contact the Parking & Transportation Office.
In the past, I have parked on campus with an Occasional parking permit. Is the affiliate parking permit different?
Yes, the affiliate permit is different in several ways.
- To request an affiliate permit, you need to have a Kerberos account (also known as an MIT or Athena account).
- The cost may be different.
- Payment is by credit card auto-payment only (no checks).
- We are currently evaluating the evening parking program, and starting in September 2019 affiliates may be charged the daily parking fee regardless of the time of day or day of the week that they use an MIT parking facility, including evenings and weekends.
MIT affiliates pay for parking via credit card auto-pay.
- You will be charged the monthly parking fee at the beginning of the month. For example: Your monthly parking fee for the month of July will be charged to your credit card at the beginning of July.
- Once a month, you will be charged for your parking activity that month, based on the daily rate.
