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.

When will I pay parking charges, and when will I pay the monthly parking fee?

  • 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.
