Parking facilities at MIT are extremely limited. Students are advised to avoid bringing an automobile to MIT if possible. In general, the Institute cannot provide parking for first-year undergraduates. Students may obtain information about parking on campus and request a parking permit at the MIT Parking and Transportation Office website. Students with disabilities who have parking requests should contact Disability and Access Services for approval.

Students who plan to bring motor vehicles to Cambridge should take careful note of the information regarding pertinent Massachusetts laws distributed with registration material. In addition, since the rate of car thefts in this state is one of the highest in the nation, serious consideration should be given to equipping automobiles with anti-theft devices.

Information about parking and other transportation resources at MIT is available on the website or at the Atlas Service Center, Room E17-106.
