Parking around campus can be very challenging and expensive so we strongly advice anyone who can, including those staying at nearby hotels, to use public transportation.

For Friday and Saturday:

There is metered parking on the main streets, but they allow a max of two hours parked, and often there are not many available. The following are other parking options around campus:

Name Address Rate distance on foot
First Street Garage First street weekday: 20; weekend: 5 ~20 min
Green Street Garage 260 Green Street weekday: 22; weekend: 12 ~15 min
55 Franklin Street 55 Franklin Street 35/day ~10 min
MIT Visitor Parking 139 Massachusetts Ave 32/day on campus
Kendall Center Yellow 75 Ames Street 40/day <5 min
Kendall Center Green 90 broadway 42/day <5 min

For Sunday: no meter is required to park on the street, so we advice street parking around campus.


Currently there are 2 primary hotels the Kendall hotel (special rate available with the code: BG) and the Holiday Inn Express. Rooms are going away quickly!  Other additional hotels within the area are also listed below, however, accommodations are not guaranteed.
