Beacon, Boylston, Charles, Arlington, and Newbury streets, all of Chinatown, anywhere near the Common
Getting a Parking Permit
Off-campus students may be able to secure a resident parking permit for their neighborhood. Keep in mind that Massachusetts registration and proof of residency will be required. These permits only assure you parking near your home, and they often have year-long waitlists.
