Faculty & Staff Parking

Faculty & Staff at Boston College who drive vehicles to the University are required to register their vehicles and display a valid BC parking permit decal on the windshield.

Faculty & Staff permits are valid June 1st - May 31st and must be renewed every academic year.

Permit pick-up is at student services in Lyons hall.

Faculty & Staff Permits

Employee parking permits are limited to current employees on the Boston College payroll system. It is the responsibility of the employee to register and display the permit decal on the windshield for access to the Boston College campus. There is a limit of one permit per employee at any one time. Permits will not be granted or renewed if unpaid campus parking citations are on record. 

The employee parking permits are designed to allow flexibility for use on up to 3 vehicles registered, as long as no more than one vehicle is parked on campus at a time. The movable decal can be peeled and stuck to any clean windshield interior numerous times without being damaged. If the permit decal should fail to adhere or tear during the course of the year, please return the damaged permit to Student Services for replacement at no cost to you.

To cancel a permit, you must surrender the decal to Student Services.

Carpool Permits

Carpool permits are available to staff and faculty who commute together to campus throughout the year.

The goal of the carpool permit is to reduce the number of vehicles on campus with the incentive of getting a higher tier permit (access to M and R permit areas) at a reduced rate.

When ready to register, both individuals must bring both vehicle registrations to student services in Lyons hall and one permit will be assigned to the account.

If you are interested in finding someone to carpool with, you may fill out the Carpool Form and we will reach out if anyone in your area is also interested.

Vendor/Contractor Parking

All vendors/contractors must have a parking permit to park on campus. Vendors/contractors are responsible for immediate payment of all tickets. Department funds cannot be used to pay ticket fines.

Failure to adhere to Boston College permit and parking rules and regulations will result in loss of all on-campus parking privileges and cancellation of permit. Lost or stolen permits must be reported to the Transportation and Parking Office.

Vendors/Contractors Frequently on Campus

Vendors who are frequently on campus will be issued a GVC-G (Vendor/Contractor) permit. This permit will apply to consultants as well as engineers, architects, service/maintenance providers, sales representatives, etc.

Based on some project needs, vendor/contractors will be restricted to specific parking areas. Main Gate Middle Campus access is restricted and parking must be prearranged as needed through Transportation and Parking.
