What are my parking payment options as a campus resident?

  • Student residents can pay for parking either through your student account or via credit card auto-pay.
  • Resident employees can pay for parking either by payroll deduction, where parking costs are deducted before income taxes are calculated, or via credit card auto-pay. Resident employees who 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.
  • Spouse/partners can pay for parking through credit card auto-pay.

If I pay through my student account, when do I get charged for parking?

Student residents paying through their student accounts will be charged for each month’s parking at the beginning of that month. For example: Your monthly parking rate for the month of July will be charged at the beginning of July.

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

All campus residents paying via credit card auto-pay will be charged for each month’s parking at the beginning of the next month. For example: Your monthly parking fee for the month of July will be charged at the beginning of August.

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

MIT resident employees who pay for parking via payroll will have the monthly parking charge 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.
