Parking at MIT
To save money and help the environment, the Parking and Transportation Office encourages you to consider alternatives to bringing your car to campus. We offer subsidy and reimbursement incentive programs, and you can apply for them by visiting your Commuting Benefits page on Atlas.
But if driving is your only commuting option, we are here to help. On this site, you’ll find information about permits, parking locations, benefits, and regulations. We also provide a step-by-step outline of how to apply for a permit, where on your car to affix the sticker (it’s very important), and how to cancel your parking.
Please note: Commuter parking is regulated by the Clean Air Act of 1973, which 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, regardless of whether they work full-time or part-time.
