Get Your Parking Pass

It takes time to activate your pass!

Please contact us to activate your pass 2-3 business days prior to the day you need parking access, or you will need to pay the daily rate. 

  • Know your options! Review information about parking rates.
  • Passes can only be secured via an online form. Transportation Services no longer accepts paper applications.
  • Qualifying part-time students or faculty who would like to purchase a 15- or 30- single-use pass may do so by filling our form. After application approval, you will be contacted to make payment.
  • To help you get around campus, please view the campus map.

Your BeaconCard is now your semester parking pass and is required to enter/exit garages. To get a BeaconCard visit BeaconCard Services, email, or call 617-287-7326. If you replace your Beaconcard, you must contact transportation services to apply your ongoing pass to your new card. If a BeaconCard is not present to both enter and exit the lot, the daily rate will need to be paid. We will not offer refunds for parking under any circumstances. 

You must receive confirmation from Transportation Services that your BeaconCard has been activated prior to use!
