Temporary No Charge Daily Parking Permits

All Harvard I.D. holders will have access to the HBS Surface Lot, the Webster Lot (Athletics area), the Observatory Lot, Littauer Lot, SEAS Lot and William James Lot. No permit pre-ordering is required, simply show your Harvard I.D. for facility access. Annual permit holders will be given priority access to facilities, and availability may be limited at select locations. Parking rules continue to apply and signage regarding reserved spaces must be observed. View a map of Harvard parking locations: printable map or interactive map.
