Permit Rules and Regulations
Every employee, faculty, staff, and student vehicle parked on Boston University Medical Campus (BUMC) or Boston Medical Center (BMC) property must display a valid parking permit. A permit allows a vehicle to be parked only in an assigned parking facility. A permit does not guarantee space in parking facilities, but every effort is extended to accommodate permit holders.
Access and egress to all parking facilities are by card access only: authorized BMC and BUMC IDs.
All permit transactions (issuance, exchanges, and returns) are conducted at the Transportation Services office. Permits are issued for up to 12 months. A valid vehicle registration and a valid identification must be presented to validate eligibility for a parking permit. Renewal permits are distributed annually for all authorized parkers.
Permits must be clearly visible from outside the vehicle and should be affixed to the rear side window on the driver’s side.
Altering the information on a permit may result in immediate suspension of parking privileges and/or other disciplinary action, as appropriate, including possible legal prosecution.
Permit Refunds, Replacements, Cancellation, Fees
Permit holders who will be away for an extended period of time (e.g., maternity leave, sabbatical) may contact the Transportation Services office prior to their departure to temporarily suspend their parking payroll deduction.
Refunds on prepaid permits will be issued and payroll deductions will be terminated when the Transportation Services office receives the permit, accompanied by a formal cancellation request. The Transportation Services office must be notified if your access card (for specific garages) cannot be returned or a $20 fee will be charged.
If notification of termination is not given, charges will continue to accrue regardless of the permit’s date of expiration. The effective termination date for payroll deductions is either the date on which the permit is received by the Transportation Services office or the last day of employment, whichever is first.
If your vehicle is sold, or if the registration is changed in any way, you must return your old permit or provide Transportation Services with proof of sale, transfer or disposal of your vehicle in order to be issued a new permit.
Lost or stolen permits must be reported to the Transportation Services office immediately.
Replacement permits (e.g., to replace lost or stolen permits) will be assessed a $20 fee.
BU Student Parking Policy
ID badges must be activated for you to enter and exit the parking facilities.
Space is limited and BMC-BUMC Parking & Transportation Services reserves the right to indicate which parking facility may be used. Vehicles parked in unauthorized areas will be ticketed and/or towed at owner’s expense. Please note that there are signs indicating these areas, which may include designated fire lanes.
A current BU Medical Campus ID is necessary to enroll in the parking program. Payment can be made in the form of check, Visa, or Mastercard. Payment for parking must be paid in advance and for a maximum of three months. Weekend and holidays are $8 flat rate in the 710 Albany Street. There is a $40 fee for all replacement IDs.
