Parking

Parking suggestions and directions for getting to Harvard as a whole are available on Harvard's web site.

However, if you are driving to the Boston area, your best bet is probably to park at your hotel and use public transportation to get around while you are here.

You can get a Visitor Parking Permit at the SEAS at Harvard (21 Oxford Street) for $10 for the weekend. When registering for the parking permit system use select "Visitor to Campus" as the Department as "7700" as the Department Code. *Some browsers have trouble with the checkout system.
