Parking on Campus

Parking at BU is limited due to ongoing campus improvements and the challenges of parking in Boston. If you are driving to campus, we recommend you arrive 20-30 minutes early so you have ample time to locate parking prior to your visit.

There is no visitor parking on campus. This includes the parking lot across from the visitor center that is reserved for faculty and staff. There are parking meters available along Bay State Road. We recommend parking in front of buildings between 100 Bay State Road and 200 Bay State Road. Meters take credit cards or quarters (there is a change machine at the Leventhal Center) or can be paid with the Park Boston app.
