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. In case you are interested in sharing a room, please fill out our housing support form here.
