Getting to Campus, Parking and Transit

Parking in Cambridge and Boston is extremely limited. You are encouraged to walk, bike, or use public transportation instead of bringing vehicles to campus.

Parking Applications and Fees

If you do drive, permits are required for parking on Harvard University property. Parking for Summer School students with a valid parking permit is available in the Soldiers Field Garage on a space-available basis. You may apply for a parking permit in person at the Campus Service Center once your classes begin. For details, see the Summer School Parking section of the Campus Service Center website or call (617) 496-7827.
