I have been parking in a leased space off campus and paying a monthly rate. Will I now be charged a daily rate?

I will be working at MIT, but just for a semester/summer. Can I get on-campus parking?

If you are employed by MIT full- or part-time, you are eligible to apply for daily employee parking. If you are not an MIT employee, you are eligible to apply for affiliate parking. See our FAQ about affiliate parking for more information.

A colleague of mine is parking in a leased space off campus. Is that an option for me?

Leased spaces are not generally part of our parking system and are only arranged on a case-by-case basis. Please contact the Parking & Transportation Office for more information.

As an employee, what are my payment options? I have heard there are advantages to paying through payroll deduction.

Employees can pay daily parking charges either by payroll deduction, where parking costs are deducted before income taxes are calculated, or via credit card auto-pay.

If you choose payroll deduction for your parking charges, the advantage is that you save some money. As a pre-tax deduction, the payroll deduction reduces your gross pay before state and federal tax withholding is calculated. In other words, you won’t pay income tax on the money you pay for parking charges if that money has been deducted from payroll.

What are my parking payment options as a professor emeritus/emerita?

Paid professors emeriti pay for parking via payroll deduction or credit card auto-pay. Unpaid professors emeriti pay for parking via credit card auto-pay.

If I choose payroll deduction, when do I get charged for parking?

MIT employees and emeritus faculty who pay for parking via payroll deduction will see the deduction on the next paycheck following the parking activity. For example:

  • For weekly payroll: Your parking activity for the first week of July will be deducted from your payroll check the second week of July;
  • For semi-monthly payroll: Your parking activity for July 1-15 will be deducted from your July 31 check.
  • For leased spaces, please note: Your monthly parking charge will be deducted from your paycheck either in four installments of one fourth the cost (weekly payroll) or two installments of one half the cost (semi-monthly payroll). For example, for semi-monthly payroll, one half of the cost of parking in July will be deducted on July 15, and the other half will be deducted on July 31.

If I choose credit card auto-pay, when do I get charged for parking?

If you pay for parking via credit card auto-pay, your daily parking charges (or your monthly fee for a leased space) will be charged at the beginning of the month after the parking activity occurred. For example: Your parking activity (or monthly fee) for the month of July will be charged to your credit card at the beginning of August.
