Parking at Boston College:

We strongly encourage our visitors to take advantage of public transportation, rideshare, taxis, or car services when visiting campus. Parking is very limited. Should it be necessary for you to drive to campus, please take note of the following:

  • It is best to enter campus from Commonwealth Avenue in front of St. Ignatius church.
  • Inform the parking attendant that you will be visiting the Career Center.
  • Upon entry to the garage all visitors should take a ticket. A validated (paid) ticket is required to exit the garage.
  • Due to traffic delays on campus and the distance from the parking garage to the Career Center, we encourage visitors to arrive on campus at least 30–40 minutes prior to the start of their scheduled visit.
