Parking and Directions


Wedding-day parking on the weekend or on Fridays after 5 pm will be complimentary to you and your guests, upon availability, in the Boston University parking lot (Lot J) located at 240 Bay State Road. If Lot J should fill up, guests will be directed to alternate BU lots. Outside of the aforementioned times, there will be a charge of $12/spot for parking and parking must be arranged with the Marsh Chapel office at least two months in advance of your wedding date. Parking cannot be guaranteed during the week.

Located at 240 Bay State Road, Lot J can be accessed by heading west on Bay State Road, which runs parallel to and between Commonwealth Avenue and the Charles River.

We cannot arrange parking for the wedding rehearsal, but there are metered spots and pay parking lots nearby on Bay State Road and Commonwealth Ave.


Marsh Chapel is located at 735 Commonwealth Ave., Boston, MA 02215.

Handicap Accessibility

There is a handicapped lift for use by your guests in the Marsh Chapel. The lift is located on the west side of the building off of Marsh Plaza. Please access the lift from the Commonwealth Avenue side as the lift is level with the street.

Though the sanctuary is handicap accessible, there is no convenient restroom on the main floor, and no access to the lower levels of the Chapel.
