A permit system is in place for the various constituencies that use parking at Boston College. In an effort to enhance parking and, at the same time, find a way to more equitably share the financial burden of parking costs previously funded through student tuition, all permits will require a fee. For more detailed information, please select the appropriate link below:
- Athletic event parking
- Faculty and staff parking
- Student parking
- Temporary overnight parking
- Visitor parking
Overnight parking is not allowed unless qualified under strict criteria and a valid permit obtained. Those faculty and staff holding valid A, R, or M permits may also park on Middle Campus between 5:30 p.m. and 3:00 a.m. Monday through Sunday.
Please note that in the unlikely situation that parking is full in both garages, overflow parking will be available at a parking lot located in Brighton and within walking distance of campus.
All aspects of parking and traffic rules and regulations are codified and each population segment above is included in the Summary of Parking and Traffic Regulations.
Motorcycle Parking Permits
Vehicle access and parking privileges require a Boston College parking permit. This includes motorcycles.
To acquire a motorcycle permit, the employee or student must apply for the permit in person at Student Services.
All motorcycles are limited to G permit parking areas.
Employees may register and acquire up to one motorcycle permit per year. If it is the only vehicle being registered by an employee, it will incur the prevailing G permit price. A motorcycle permit is registered separately from a four-wheeled vehicle and is not included as one of the three vehicles registered to a single permit.
A motorcycle permit is a permanent sticker that is not intended to be repositionable. The permit must be displayed on the left front "fork" of the motorcycle.
Students must pre-qualify for on campus parking. If they meet qualifications, they may have a parking permit for either a four-wheeled vehicle or a motorcycle, but not both. Students may have only one campus parking permit each. The permit price for a motorcycle is the same as that for a four-wheeled vehicle.
