Parking at MIT

Please note: On-campus parking is extremely limited.

Guests may be dropped off at on-campus ceremony venues, including the entrance to Killian Court.

Parking will be available at the Albany St. Garage on a first-come, first-served basis and is expected to fill up quickly, so please plan accordingly. 

We urge ceremony attendees to plan ahead for the likelihood of the garage being full when you arrive on campus. ⇒Review public parking options

Please see the Visiting Cambridge page for information on alternative modes of transportation to MIT during Commencement.

Members of the MIT community who drive to campus should review the Campus Community section for any changes that are in effect during Commencement time.

Disabled parking

Limited parking is available to holders of state-issued disabled placards ONLY. If you do not have a state-issued permit, you may drop members of your party at the ceremony venue before proceeding to park at another location.
