Are you driving to campus?
Please allow additional time for driving, parking, and walking due to possible delays caused by construction. For more information, check Construction Updates at www.umb.edu/construction.
On weekdays during the fall and spring semesters, drivers are encouraged to park at the UMass Boston Bayside Lot, located at 200 Mt. Vernon Street in Boston, and take a free shuttle to the Clark Athletic Center or the Campus Center. (This shuttle, Route 3, stops at the Clark Athletic Center first.) Other satellite lots, open weekdays only during the fall and spring semesters, are located at 265 Mt. Vernon Street and 75 Morrissey Boulevard. If drivers are parked at 265 Mt. Vernon Street, the Route 3 shuttle will pick them up; if drivers are parked at 75 Morrissey Boulevard, the Route 1 shuttle will pick them up. These shuttle routes do not run on the weekends.
For guests visiting the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for a campus tour or a scheduled appointment, a limited number of reserved parking spaces are located in the Beacons Lot. As routes may change due to construction, follow signs and check our parking map for the most up-to-date traffic patterns. Parking will be validated by staff in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
Parking costs $6 a day.
